Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nicole Peterson Davis
Hayleigh started her own business of making hearing aid charms when she was just ten years old. Every year thousands of kids just like Hayleigh go into business for themselves. This book will help a young person start a business with step by step instructions. The book contains information about figuring out what to do to start a business, how to write a business plan, and turning your plan into reality. The last chapter of the book even has three real life examples of kids who have created a successful business. This book is part of a series of books designed to teach kids the history behind things and then giving them a step by step guide to accomplish it called "creative adventure guides." Although this is a great step by step guide for starting a business, it does not go into the history of businesses (as other books in the series do). The end of the book contains a glossary, a place for more information (internet resources and a bibliography), and an index. This book will be quite useful for any kids who are interested in starting a business to make money. Reviewer: Nicole Peterson Davis
