 Fun Books That Will Get Your Kids Excited About Money

 Fun Books That Will Get Your Kids Excited About Money

 

Chances are, you want your child to be financially wise, but every time you start to talk about money management or smart spending, your kid conveniently tunes out. Fun books are the perfect way to get your children thinking about money.

 

You don't necessarily need to force your kids to read heavy economic books. Instead, allow them to enjoy and be inspired by these books about saving, giving, and starting businesses.

 

The Berenstain Bears' Dollars and Sense by Stan and Jan Berenstain

The Berenstain Bears' Dollars and Sense helps teach kids about allowance management. The book has tear-out checks so that kids can practice writing their own. While most of the population uses debit cards and credit cards, writing checks is still something that should be learned.

 

The Berenstain Bears' Money Trouble by Stan and Jan Berenstain

The Berenstain Bears' Money Trouble features the same lovable bears as they start several businesses to earn money. Starting a business isn't easy, even when it's just a lemonade stand. This book goes through those initial obstacles in a fun way.

 

The Berenstain Bears' Piggy Bank Blessings by Stan and Jan Berenstain

The Berenstain Bears' Piggy Bank Blessings has an overall religious tone, quoting verses, but the story follows the bears as they save money for a surprise birthday present for their mom. My f0-year-old enjoys this one, and I enjoy that the book shows the main characters thinking of others.

Prices! Prices! Prices!: Why They Go Up and Down by David Adler

The well-loved author of the Cam Jansen series, David Adler, also happens to be a former math teacher. His book, Prices! Prices! Prices!: Why They Go Up and Down has such fun illustrations and tackles the concepts of supply and demand.

 

Amelia Bedelia Means Business by Herman Parish

Amelia Bedelia is a lovable and quirky character who takes everything literally. There have been many times I have laughed out loud while reading the original Amelia Bedelia series to my son 

 

Amelia Bedelia Means Business is not written by the original author, but the story still follows the same theme. This one follows a young Amelia Bedelia as she tries to make money, even getting in trouble with the local police.

The Babysitter's Club Series by Ann Martin

There might not be any set money lessons in the Babysitter's Club Series, but I remember clearly that it helped spark an entrepreneurial spirit in me during my tween years. The idea that a group of teen girls start their own babysitting club had me planning and thinking about doing that myself. While I never started a babysitting club, I still have that entrepreneurial spirit that has allowed me to creatively earn money without a 9-to-5 position. The book series has been redone as a graphic novel, so it will appeal to today's generations.

Rock, Brock, and the Savings Shock by Sheila Bair

Rock, Brock, and the Savings Shock follows twins whose grandpa offers them a 10-week savings plan. Every dollar they save will be matched. One twin saves his money and has over $500 after 10 weeks, while the other twin spends the money foolishly. Tons of great money lessons in here.
