I thought this book was too old with some of its topics for the targeted age of the book. I had to double check that I wasn't reading an adult book.
Great book that covers the basics of money management (from the economy to how to choose a charity to donate your money/time to) in a quick read. I created a test, and made it a requirement for my teen to get a student debit card. It introduced her to some new concepts, and because we have talked about it (oh yeah, and the test) she's got the basics down cold!
I'm going to use this book in my 8th Grade Financial Literacy class. It was a really good, quick read and is written at a level that is perfect for middle school age students. Whether you are a teacher or a parent I think this is a great book!
