Overview

Investing can be a great way to have your money work for you. By putting your money into smart investments, you can add to the amount you have without actually having to work for it.

Each investment has its own risks and potential rewards. You can potentially make more money on a risky investment, but the chance you take is higher. Lower-risk investments have a better chance of making money, but the rewards are smaller.

There are important differences in short- and long-term investment strategies that you should know about.

Before you invest your money, it's important that you know you have enough to invest. Saving up enough to invest is key.

VOYA - Dawn Talbott
Who would have thought the world of money and investing could be so colorful and exciting? In the Junior Library of Money series, this is certainly true. This multivolume series sets out to educate students and provide a sound foundational understanding of our financial system. In Earning Money: Jobs, teens learn why working is important and how to find the right job, including what steps to take in preparation and what is expected of them once they have a job. In Investing Money, readers learn about the many types of investments that are available, how to get money to invest, and where to begin. This series is stunning, with vivid color illustrations on every page. Each subtopic is covered in a two-page spread that features bold graphics and bright colors. This succinct and visually appealing coverage is sure to fit the attention span of students. Each book follows the same 64-page format, with a glossary, an index, further reading, web resources, and an index. Another great feature is the "Here's What You Need to Remember" section just before the standard nonfiction features. This bulleted list restates the main points of the book. It is a great way to sum up the information covered. In an age of digital multimedia and PowerPoint, this book series holds its own. Although it is not a subject that every teen will pick up for entertainment, those that do will certainly enjoy the colorful art and easy-to-understand language.

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One of fourteen in the "Jr. Library of $Money" series that introduces middle school students to financial concepts such as inflation, interest rates, credit and stock ownership, institutions such as banks, the stock market, the Federal Reserve, and the FDIC. This title discusses the concept of investing in twenty-five short chapters that utilize bold photographs, illustrations and well-researched text in an appealing layout to introduce basic investing and its importance in the lives of most individuals. Concepts discussed include kinds of investments, the importance of investing, ways to invest, risk diversity, compound interest, CD's, money markets, saving bonds as well as steps for being a good investor, for example. As the introduction states, "everyone needs a basic knowledge of our financial world" and recent developments in our economy illustrate the need for consumers of all ages to be as informed as possible. This series is a great introduction for students, has just the right amount of information and can easily be expanded to hands-on learning by a creative teacher. A glossary of new vocabulary highlighted in the text, sources for further study, an index, picture credits and info about the author and advisor are included. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
