7 books that teach kids about entrepreneurship and money


This is a fantastic topic that is far too often overlooked by authors. Teaching kids about money and entrepreneurship early can profoundly benefit them and our society as a whole. It can be difficult to pull it off in an entertaining and educational way but this book did it beautifully about 3 girls that always come up with different business ideas. They all have different talents, work together as a team and don’t let failure prevent them from trying something different. The book is very upbeat and positive, loaded with great art too. I love how the author includes the process from idea to research to execution... it’s really well done! In the end the kids notice a problem in the neighborhood park and work hard to help the local wildlife... the whole book is very inspiring and goes to show that with the right mindset you can really do a lot. This is one book every teacher or parent should be reading with their kids, I truly believe that. Well done

Such a good topic for kids!! The world definitely needs more kid’s books on this topic. Two pandas do chores for allowance every day and mom keeps reminding them to save their money and not spend it all on candy. 1 panda spends 1 dollar and saves 4 , the other panda spends everything. Eventually the day comes when they visit the toy store and it becomes clear why we need to save.

A really great idea for a book. I’ve always said we should be teaching kids about money from an early age in school. This one is very well done, great artwork and gets to the point. When two kids ask their father about money he goes over the basics with them. Simple concept and very well presented. The more we teach our children how money works, the more prepared they will be in the future.

Beautiful artwork and easy to follow storyline come together to bring the book to life. About 2 kids who come up with the idea to sell lemonade. They get their savings together and set up a lemonade stand with big dreams to make a bundle. Of course it’s snowing and they live on a very quiet street but that doesn’t stop them. After trying very hard to attract customers with sales and entertainment they only make $4. That doesn’t even cover the initial investment, however it’s enough to go buy some popsicles.
