This book might be intended for kids but if an adult doesn't know yet the basic information about money as it is presented thoroughly in this highly informational edition written by Hollis Page Harman, the adult is still a kid ! And it is OK for an adult to read and get informed on money, how to get it and how to have more of it, because by taking the "Kids" out of the title of this book, it could easily pass for an average adult educational tool.
The book provides plenty of information about money - from the brief biographies of presidents and the explanations of historical moments and landmarks portrayed on the printed bills to the meanings of important messages of the seals. The book dwells on how to get money various ways, save it and invest it. There are plenty of explanation of stocks, bond and mutual funds, and how to manipulate them for the most profit. There is also great explanation on banks and their basic procedures such as opening an account, depositing and use of ATM. There is reference to plenty of additional information at the end of the book such as internet links to websites and additional books of money-related content.
This book is great for kids because the information is provided in short passages and is complimented with playful illustrations and interesting attention grabbers such as To-Do Lists at the end of every chapter. There is a part in the book that is dedicated to games involving money so the kids could learn how to use calculator and learn how to count money. This is a great book to have in the home library of a child who is obviously past his 1st grade but also, this book should be a must-read for an adult who didn't get a chance to learn the basics of money and it's management.
