This fun financial handbook aims to encourage children to develop good money habits from an early age. It is packed full of information and advice about how to manage money effectively. The opening chapter discusses what money is, where it came from and why it is used. It explores how money has evolved, from the exchange of goods thousands of years ago, to the use of coins, notes, credit cards, online banking and, moving forward, cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.
Subsequent chapters discuss how to earn, spend, save, grow and give money, and there is a useful summary at the end of each section. Simple examples are used to explain complicated concepts, such as how banks charge and award interest, and the author explains how money can be empowering and a force for good in the world.
The chatty style and attractive layout are enhanced by plenty of diagrams and illustrations, making this an accessible guide, which can be read from cover to cover or dipped into at random. Essential reading for young people, this enjoyable and informative book will help enable them take control of their financial future.
