Believe it or not, 21% of American adults think that winning the lottery is the best strategy for their retirement. Statistics show us that Americans, as a whole, are financially illiterate and generally horrendous at saving. "What All Kids . . ." aims to correct that by teaching basic saving and investing concepts to middle grades/young adults in a fun and interesting way. Described as "POTENTIALLY GENUINELY LIFE CHANGING" and "AMAZINGLY WRITTEN," this book covers saving, budgeting and investing, and is a MUST-READ for all young adults, teens and everyone older than that without basic financial literacy skills. The goal is to instill the idea of long term investing � not get rich quick - that everyone should know, irrespective of their age. � Saving � Budgeting � Compounding � Consumer Debt � Negotiation � Risk v. Reward � Buy-and-Hold � Diversification � Minimizing Costs � Building a Portfolio. Examples are used to discourage market timing and chasing returns. The book encourages good savings and investment habits so readers will continue to practice them the rest of their lives. And we all know that the attention spans of some readers may wander, so the EXCITING LAYOUT captures and retains the attention of even the most fickle readers with fun facts and interesting takeaways. MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL AGED KIDS WHO READ THIS BOOK WILL KNOW HOW TO SAVE AND INVEST. And do yourself a favor parents, you should read it too.
