Publishers Description Neale Godfrey's "Money Doesn't Grow on Trees" flew to the top of the bestseller list by helping parents teach their kids the value and uses of money. In her latest national bestseller, "A Penny Saved, " Godfrey builds on those basic concepts -- for preschoolers through teenagers -- and gives parents a concrete structure to teach values and essential life skills. Parents want their children to grow up with healthy self-esteem, sound judgment, self-discipline, and the ability to take care of themselves in an uncertain world. They want their children to learn the positive lessons of honesty, responsibility, cooperation, and ethical behavior. By teaching children to understand what money is, how to use it, and what it can -- and can't -- do, parents prepare their children for life in the real world. Worksheets, quizzes, teaching games, and age-appropriate exercises give kids hands-on opportunities to hone their practical skills.

Too Difficult a System Aug 23, 2002
Although there is some interesting, useful ad fun tips (the Need v. Want game is great), the whole system is too difficult for a working family to use. I'm sorry, but having a 6-year-old pay "taxes" is over the deep end. And so is paying interest on your child's savings jar. (That's what banks are for.)
Great advice for those of us who weren't taught early! Oct 1, 1999
This book offered some new ideas for teaching my children about money and the significance of earning, saving, and spending. Ms. Godfrey does get a little carried away with the "jar" system (there would be about 30 in my house!), but her point is well taken. I really liked the part about teaching children to research purchases and costs of living, and looking at debt and financial responsiblities as an overall, long-term picture.
