Wow, an amazingly interesting and helpful book, considering I just picked it up because it had a yellow cover! With age-specific lessons and activities from age 5+, it really inspired me to make learning about money (and entrepreneurship, etc) part of what I teach my kids. Watch out--I may be approaching friends and family to be "money mentors" for my kids!

Out of all the personal finance books I have read, this one was the most structured and was organized in a very straight-forward and useful format, showing the 10 basic skills that people should learn. They are as follows:

How to Save
How to Get Paid What You’re Worth
How to Spend Wisely
How to Talk About Money
How to live within a budget
How to invest
How to exercise the Entrepreneurial Spirit
How to handle credit
How to use money to change the world
How to be a citizen of the world

The book is full of great ideas and is helpful and easy to read. It is well organized and has advice for every age of children. My only issue with it is that it is over the top. The level of interaction one would have to have feels like a full time job. I would have preferred simpler, practical ways to give kids lessons about money that are more woven into daily life.

It helps not only your kids in managing finance but also yourself with the same techniques.
I finished this book at the end of the year of Chicken (29th December, Lunar Calendar). The book inspires me to write a review of myself on financial last year and a plan for the next year of Dog.

Really simple, helpful, tangible advice. Honestly, it makes it seem like “why isn’t everyone doing it this way” I even found it helpful when considering how to improve my own habits and understand.

Great ideas. A little overwhelming to do all that is suggested, but if my kids are a little more fit for doing one of the suggestions, then we win right?
