HOW DO KIDS MAKE MONEY is a book that teaches children ways they can make money. It addresses things they can to be responsible with both the planning stage and budgeting after they start making money. Money management is an important part of making money that a lot of people overlook or forget to educate their children about. Whether it's a long-term goal or short-term one, none of it is accomplishable if they don't plan for expenses.

The illustrations are bold and cartoon-y to emphasize the skills needed for each task. I like how it also incorporates real photos and graphs where needed. The author also shows children the importance of doing a good job because more customers are brought in by word-of-mouth. This concept is key to success and I like how the author points it out along with sources they can use for advice. Like their parents.


Final Verdict: HOW DO KIDS MAKE MONEY not only shows the ways to make money, but also how to be responsible with it which makes this book an excellent educational tool. I would recommend this to children aged eight and up who want to make a bit of extra money for that toy they've always wanted or maybe something even larger. For those children who are ready to show responsibility, this is a great place to start.

‘How Do Kids Make Money?: A Book for Young Entrepreneurs’ by Kate Hayes, illustrated by Srimalie Bassani, is a great read for young people who are looking to make a few extra dollars to help purchase items they’re interested in, save for the future, or to help donate to worthy causes. While there are so many options for what kids can do to earn some extra cash, the book enlightens readers about a handful of these opportunities, from selling lemonade or cookies to helping out around someone’s yard, watching pets or plants, decorating for holidays, and more.

The illustrations are cute and relatable, and there are adorable quips about why doing something one way won’t be a great choice, but why doing it another way will put one on the road to success. The book is full of tips, resources, and plenty of ideas to get anyone thinking about what great ways there are to lend a hand and make some money while doing so.

Some of the later pages of the book show how to work out a budget and keep track of one’s money. All in all, the book lends a better understanding of the intricacies of having a job, holding on to it for the future, and making money to boot.
