Bodnar, who writes the syndicated "Ask Dr. Tightwad" column, presents a wealth of practical advice for parents who want to teach their children that "money doesn't grow on trees." Strategies for handling allowances, savings, checking accounts, credit cards, and more are discussed. Parents are advised that teaching children about money can begin as early as preschool, resulting in a teenager who is better prepared to manage money in college and adult life. Opinions of both parents and professionals are provided. Some sections begin with multivoiced questioners (adults and kids) asking for advice, to which Bodnar responds. The remaining sections are read by the author. An informative and entertaining production, this will be helpful to parents of children of any age. Recommended for all collections.-Melody A.
