Children's Literature - Kristy Lyn Sutorius
This beginner's look at consumer economics minus the boring instructor injects excitement into the often anxiety-ridden topic of money. With manual in hand, teens will feel prepared to make choices that will affect them as they grow into young adults. From taking out a loan to starting one's own business, Croke focuses on real business possibilities for teens. While info on the stock market may be superfluous for some, enterprising kids may use it as a springboard for learning more about investing. Illuminating facts, quotes, tips, and definitions abound in this "Really Useful Handbook." The series as a whole focuses on educating tweens and teens about various subjects—from the economy to taking care of one's body and from when a kiss is imminent to ethical food shopping. With layouts similar to a magazine, this book appeals to teens using familiar sights like quizzes and do's and don'ts lists. This book is recommended for libraries with a well-used teen non-fiction section and parents wanting to educate their kids about money during the current slump. Reviewer: Kristy Lyn Sutorius
