    A great book on teaching kids about money is “Rich Kid, Smart Kid” by Robert Kiyosaki.

    Most of the books out there are intended for children whose value system has already been set. I believe that important values should be introduced while we teach our kids basic safety principles such as looking both ways before crossing a street. In that light, I have written 20 children’s books in a series called “Finance for Kidz.” These books are written for ages 5 and up, are fully illustrated, in a story book form, and they explain important financial principles at the same time. Please look at those books as a resource for your children. You can find them at finance4kidz period com or on amazon.

    Teaching children to keep track of their spending and saving is such an important skill. Our website, is a free, online money and allowance management system for kids, teens and families.
