The Secret Life of Money is written to address this last point in particular. It’s central message is that money affects us deeply and that even kids can have an effect on it, too. This book uses odd anecdotes, engaging comics, and a wealth of surprising everyday connections to help young readers see and understand cash from an entirely different angle. From the history of different currencies to why we buy what we buy, from how charities and credit cards work to saving and investing, and a whole lot more, readers will gain not only an appreciation for the myriad ways that money changes, influences, and (even) betters their lives, they will arrive to an understanding of the control they have over it.

This book could be as informative to adults as it is to children, either building on current knowledge or establishing concepts completely new to readers. The flow of the book from topic to topic is exceptional, and Kira Vermond's combination of humor, research, and inspiring stories (included throughout) make the book easily digestible. I'd love to see a workbook to coincide with this book to help parents establish goals with their children and develop plans for achieving them together!Was this review helpful?
