This newly updated edition of Growing Money answers every question a budding investor might ask: How do you read stock pages? What's the difference between stocks and bonds?

Today's kids want to know everything about money-especially how to make it grow.
This completely updated guide explains savings accounts, bonds, stocks, and even mutual funds! Included are fun quizzes to reveal a young investor's risk tolerance, stories of success and failure, a behind-the-scenes look at the New York Stock Exchange, and best of all, an imaginary fund of dollars to invest, along with suggestions for selecting companies compatible with kids' values.
New to this edition are chapters on financial responsibility, true-life tales of other kid investors, and step-by-step instructions of just how to buy stocks.
Tell your parents-investing isn't only for grown-ups anymore!

- I purchased this for my grandson. It appears to offer good info for kids, so hope he reads it. I haven't read it, so I can't speak from personal experience.
- I live by the motto if you don't train your kids to survive financially you are training them to live life below standard. This book is a great entry level book.
- I liked it - - read most of it before I gave it to my14 year old grandson. Again, he was more interestedin an XBox and nerf gun - - of course!! He liked the$25 I gave him but not the $25 I deposited in the savingsaccount I started for him. Maybe he will sneak and read itwhen no one is watching. One can only hope.

- A wonderful book! I can finally teach investing to my 4-6 grade students. GROWING MONEY actually makes this intimidating topic interesting to kids, and is clear enough to give me the confidence to teach it. Although it claims to be for ages 9-12, it made a great gift for my 16 year old nephew. He's been recommending it to all his friends as well.
- Book is simplified on how to make money. Talks on banking, to stock market and investment. I think this book is good for children and teens. Great buy for any age children to adults who are just beginning to figure out what they may want to with money.
- great book
- This was a gift for my granddaughter...the level of success in stimulating her interest in investing is as yet unknown, but the book seems a good start.
