From School Library Journal: Grades 6-9–Starting with homey stories and personal examples, Bateman demonstrates how to learn about investments from everyday experiences. Using current examples such as CD boom boxes but without fancy graphics, she explains the “money circle,” an excellent way to characterize the circulation of wealth; mentions bank accounts; and then provides a concise summary of savings vehicles, including an account of the “magic” of compound interest, illustrated by a table and a story of a successful young investor. As Bateman covers broader and deeper topics such as risk-tolerance, stock reports, and macroeconomics, she follows the same pattern in each chapter. Constantly referring to points made earlier, the author provides plenty of opportunity for review and concludes each chapter with another account of the young investor’s story-he ends up with his own land and hopes for a house on it.
