Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
The mystifying grown-up world of money management and investing is tamed for the young and new-to-investing of just about any age in this easy-to-read and instructive guide to savings accounts, stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Early chapters focus on money's purchasing power and how purchasing power has changed over time. The reader is next introduced to the concept of growing money and the varied ways this can be done. Large print with bold headings breaks the text into short sections that clarify the abstract investment instruments of stocks and bonds and economic vocabulary such as NASDAQ, Federal funds rate, splits, and the bulls and bears of Wall Street. Charts, graphs and other visual interpretations of the economic principles under discussion expand on the text. Companies with familiar names, like Google and Apple, are used as examples, adding interest and appeal. The final chapter presents an investment game that puts all the terms, concepts and strategies outlined in the book into play. The book closes with sample investment tracking records for stocks and portfolio values, a glossary, a list of web sites titled "Other Sources for Financial Vocabulary" and an index. This book succeeds in presenting complex information succinctly and clearly and would be an excellent resource for a middle or high school class studying economics or an introductory financial investment class.
