Important Lessons Of How To Manage Money
Learning how to manage money —when to save it, when to invest it, and when to spend it— is a critical life skill, and one that's hard to teach. And it's especially hard to teach to kids, who do not always have the longest time horizon on which to evaluate decisions.
Book blogger Amy at Locks, Hooks and Books believes KidVenture: Twelve Weeks To Midnight Blue is a helpful tool for parents to teach kids about money:
I found KidVenture: Twelve Weeks To Midnight Blue by Steve Searfoss to be a great book. It teaches kids some valuable lessons of how to keep a business going and the important lesson of how to manage money. Not only the younger readers could learn from this, but many adults could, as well. I liked following Chance and seeing how his pool cleaning company would prosper and seeing how he would take care of his expenses and profit. I admired his courage and his hard work in getting through all of the challenges he faces all through the story. It was fun and entertaining to read that put a smile on my face.
KidVenture: Twelve Weeks To Midnight Blue includes some fun illustrations throughout the book. The pictures were a vivid and colorful addition to the story. They were a great visual to what the characters were doing in certain scenes.
KidVenture: Twelve Weeks To Midnight Blue is getting a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for young readers who are between the ages of ten and fourteen. I look forward to reading more books like this from Steve Searfoss in the future and hope he will be releasing more KidVenture books soon. This one would be a great addition to a local or school library.
Thank you, Amy. We agree that adults could also benefit from reading KidVenture and learn more about managing money and running a business.
