Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Amy Fiske
This informative six-volume series provides teens with a thorough introduction to various aspects of investing. The first volume outlines available investment options and subsequent volumes focus on specific options in greater detail. Each volume follows a similar format of introduction, detailed explanation, planning and strategy, and merits v. risks. Investment Options For Teens briefly explains college savings plans, savings accounts, certificates of deposit, IRAs, mutual funds, savings bonds, and stocks. Using plain language and simple math calculations, this volume shows teens the clear benefits of saving and investing even small amounts from an early age. Investment is portrayed as a long game that greatly enhances quality of life. Buying Mutual Funds discusses planning, types of funds, pros and cons, and investing strategies for mutual funds. Buying Stocks covers planning, Internet trading, portfolio management, risks, and stock strategy for rookie investors. All volumes make ample use of photos, bold graphics, charts, and illustrations to effectively convey key points of a complex subject. Additional titles in the series, Buying Bonds, Safe-Haven Savings, and A Dividend Stock Strategy For Teens round out the comprehensive series on investing for teens. Although written by multiple authors, the books maintain a consistent, straightforward writing style. Each volume contains sections on further reading, Internet links, works consulted, a glossary, and an index. Sidebars contain additional trivia and facts. This series very effectively breaks down complex ideas and processes into explanations that are easy to understand and advice that is simple to follow. (A Teen Guide to Investing) Reviewer: Amy Fiske
School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up—This series is a valuable addition to any library or classroom. The clearly written texts are ideal for introducing students to investing. The discussions are straightforward but not oversimplified. The writing is so precise that all readers will come away believing that they can invest successfully. There is a good balance of providing tips to increase chances of making money (diversify!), stressing the importance of research, and warnings of the possible pitfalls. The only possible downside to this series is the attractive but staged-looking photos that will limit initial appeal. "Investor Trivia" text boxes contain interesting facts. For example, in Stock Strategy readers learn that "A single share in the Coca-Cola Company sold for $40 in 1919. Today that one share would be worth $9.8 million." Some titles include an appendix with specifics. For example, Mutual Funds has a "Low Cost Mutual Funds to Consider" chart. Excellent resources for students wanting to learn more about investing.
