Author: Robert T. Kiyosaki with Sharon L. Lechter, CPA

Illustrator: Rantz Hoseley

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Little, Brown & Company,

Material: paperback

Summary: The book makes readers think about their financial future without resorting to scare tactics. The examples are generic with age-appropriate examples such as comic books, bicycles and newspaper routes. The story presents difficult financial concepts in simple English for kids ages 8 and up.

Type of Reading: independent reading

Recommended Age: read together: 9 to 12; read yourself: 10 to 12

Interest Level: 9 to 13

Age of Child: n/a - This reviewer did not read with a child.

Young Reader Reaction: None offered by this reviewer.

Adult Reader Reaction: At one point, I felt myself checking my own finances to see if I was on the right track to financial freedom through asset-building versus liability-building! The reader’s choice is simple: either continue to run from paycheck to paycheck or create financial building blocks to pave your way to financial independence. The ending is a little overdone, in my opinion, as a child without financial knowledge might not have the wherewithal to open an ice cream stand after one month.

Pros: The narrative is easy to follow and the illustrations are appropriate to the subject matter.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Buy. I highly recommend this comic book for any parent who is willing to help his or her child gain a healthy understanding and long-term relationship with wealth and the benefits it brings.
