Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
One is never too young to learn entrepreneurial skills. The ?how-to' of coming up with a product to sell, advertising the product and developing a profitable home-based business is not difficult to learn. The benefits of learning to sell something, beyond earning money, is teaching children how to organize, analyze and work successfully with others and will benefit children in many ways not directly related to the business itself. Specific sales ideas are suggested in child-friendly terms, often phrased as questions to encourage children to think about all aspects of the issue. Simple but effective language communicates ideas clearly. The colorful graphics include subtitles set in contrasting colors, sample posters and budgets. Sidebars such as "Pro Tips" give additional information related to the content on the page. Specific projects, such as how to participate in a garage sale and how to sell home-made crafts, illustrate the principles discussed. This book, one in the series "Cool Kid Jobs," concludes with "Tips for Success,' a glossary, a suggested web site for further information and an index and would be a good addition to a middle school library or class on how to start your own business.
