Review:

Financial literacy skills are vital to equip our children with the tools they need to make smart decisions about their personal finances, such as balancing a checkbook, making a household budget, and knowing more about stocks, bonds, and home loans. A strong financial literacy education will help our children limit debt, avoid identity theft and maintain good credit. Resources like the 'Finance for Kids' series will help our children learn the basics of personal finance management and prepare them for the responsibilities of adulthood. --California Assemblymember Ted W. Lieu (D-Torrance)

I have been given the pleasure of readingFinance for Kids-Volumes 1-20by Prakash L Dheeriya, Ph.D. The individual chapters tell first hand stories of children experiencing finance in their daily lives. Each chapter contains an interactive worksheet or discussion for children to complete with their parents in order to better understand the concepts presented in the chapter. Prakash Dheeriya has done an excellent job explaining adult finance information in words and situations easily understood by children. The young readers learn about opening checking accounts, the understanding of supply and demand, credit, beginning a business, borrowing and lending, and establishing budgets-just to name a few of the topics. The fact that the book is interactive and requires a parent to fully discuss the content of the chapter as it pertains to the child s family provides both a wonderful learning opportunity for children as well as meaningful time spent with parents on a regular basis. Perhaps if children are exposed to the skills of finance at a young age, they will grow up to be better managers of their own financial business as adults. I applaud Prakash for his insightfulness and great efforts to create the multiple chapters of this book. --J. Pastell-Educator & Parent

Personal finance has become so much more complicated than it was 20 years ago and it is more important than ever that young people have a firm grounding in the basics of personal finance and economics. With predatory lenders wooing customers many young people have serious credit card debt and damage their credit ratings which takes years to recover from. Do your children a tremendous favor and use these books to provide them a solid foundation so that they will make good financial decisions --James T. Strong, Dean, College of Business Administration and Public Policy, California State University Dominguez Hills
