In case your calendar missed the moment, April is officially Financial Literacy Month. Yes, in addition to a month marked by spring cleaning and Easter baskets, this is the month we champion the merits of teaching kids about money.
At Biz Kid$, financial literacy runs through our veins. As an Emmy-winning financial literacy series on public television, we spend every month thinking about how to teach kids about entrepreneurship, saving and investing, financial basics, credit and debt, and more.
But if you’re new to Biz Kid$, you might be thinking about something else: so where do I find all that Biz Kid$ has to offer?
You’ve come to the right place for the answer, Biz Kid.
Without further ado, we present a roundup of our all of our content in one convenient place. Away we go!
