Kids’ Money Books

April is financial literacy month. We’re kind of biased at Kid Wealth, but we feel it’s a great time for kids to read money books.

Don’t want to take our biased opinion? What about Warren Buffett’s opinion instead?

Warren Buffett said:

“Sometimes parents wait until their kids are in their teens before they start talking about managing money — when they could be starting when their kids are in preschool.”

With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of kid money books. As you’ll see, it is far from complete. I need to review a lot more of these books. I’ll be adding information about the appropriate age of the book, the money lessons covered. Then you’ll be able to zero in on a few books that are perfect for your kids’ age and the lesson you want to focus on.

For now, I simply recommend How Much is a Million for kids up to age 8-9 and A Smart Girl’s Guide to Money for girl tweens and up. Stay tuned for another list of money books written for parents to read.
