Sometimes your kids need to hear things from other people and experience things on their own. That’s why I like to plant seeds. I got this book for my son and he thoroughly enjoyed it. It opened his eyes and was suddenly interested in connecting the dots over dinner discussions about the investing I do in my businesses involving real estate.

My kids are not old enough to work yet. They have been scheming up ways to make money for years now. Unfortunately, their lemonade stand didn’t come back after the quarantine. People aren’t quite ready for that yet. 🙂 I’m hoping this book will help broaden their horizons and give them more options to think about in regard to earning and saving money.

As a proponent of financial education for our youth, I have found this book to be a fitting addition to my grandson’s library. He’s 10-years old and is starting to grasp the concept and impact of financial decision-making. As most of us can agree, financial skills are not a part of traditional academia, so books like this can literally be worth their weight in gold. The book has provided opportunities for great topics of conversation with respect to financial rules, philosophies, and habits that have generated interest and information that will last a lifetime. The layout is artfully constructed and keeps the attention of most kids (and adults) who take the time to read it.

When ‘How to Turn $100 into $1,000,000’ landed in my 11-year-old daughter’s hands, it was like a light bulb went off. Suddenly, she’s pitching business ideas with the confidence of a seasoned CEO, and our home buzzes with talks of stocks, savings, and the sweet science of growing money. She’s charted a savings plan that’s more detailed than a treasure map, and her enthusiasm for financial wisdom is infectious. If your child is showing even a spark of interest in money matters, this book might just fan it into a blaze.


I have been reading this book with my ten year old son and it discusses all about money and what to do to earn an income. It has been very informative and I wish it is something that I would have had when I was a kid. If you want your child to learn about money, you can’t go wrong with this book.

I don’t know about you, but my 12 year old son is ALWAYS looking for ways to make a few bucks. I ordered this book for him hoping to help his entrepreneurial spirit. And boy, did it!

The colorful, appealing text and graphics sparked his interest. He immediately dove in and devoured the book – quite impressive considering he’s a reluctant reader.
Upon finishing, he promptly visited with his neighbor buddy and shared the book with him. And now they’re brainstorming ways to earn money and start a company.

Pretty cool.

I absolutely love this book! I first saw it at a FedEx Office location for 12 dollars and checked to see if I could get it cheaper on Amazon and of course it was on here. This book really outlines why it is important to start saving and ideas about how to start investing. This book is great for any age and the graphics are fantastic. It keeps my attention and really has a lot of funny and super helpful tips. I HIGHLY Recommend this book and will be looking at buying other books by this author.

Absolutely! As long as they have a sense of humor.
