“ I wish I’d had this book when my own children were teenagers. However, looking it over, I think it’s not too late- because I think this book would even work well with college students. Talk about a serious need for a book like this! There is so much we assume that young people will “just know”— and we are so wrong. This well written, user friendly, interactive book is a great service to parents who want to make sure their child understands how to be financially literate and responsible. Helping your child understand the logic and maintenance of money is critically important and I commend the author on doing such a great job of making the transmission of this information easy, fun, and extremely thorough.”
