Innovative Children's Book On Entrepreneurship
KidVenture books are great discussion tools that parents and teachers can use to get children thinking about business and economics concepts, something Dusty at Eye-Rolling Demigod's Book Blog highlights in her review:
Entrepreneur and author Steve Searfoss shares his experience with young readers through his latest book KidVenture: Twelve Weeks to Midnight Blue. Mr. Searfoss introduces basic business concepts to readers in an easy-to-understand way. I wish this book was available when I was a kid, but it was still an entertaining and humorous read in my twenties.
I enjoyed how the book was structured, and the thought-provoking questions featured at the end of each section. The length is such that readers can work through a single concept or set of related concepts at a time. The questions provided would serve as a good starting point for those who are reading this with their children and expecting discussions. As a visual learner, I also appreciated the visuals of Chance’s business worksheets that were included in the read.
Altogether, KidVenture: Twelve Weeks to Midnight Blue is an innovative and informative children’s book. I would recommend it to those looking for a children’s book on entrepreneurship that is both educational and entertaining. Despite the book being aimed at children, I think readers of all ages will get something out of reading this book. I look forward to sharing this and future KidVenture books with young readers in my life.
We're happy to see that Dusty appreciates that KidVenture books incorporate a variety of teaching methods, including questions for discussion, and real-world math calculations that are part of the story. Some kids may be more drawn to the math, others to answering questions about what they would do in that situation. Either way, they're learning about being entrepreneurs!
