“A completely charming discussion of allowances for kids... Nathan makes the subject of money open and manageable...this self-help manual communicates some of life’s important skills in a way that is fun and practical.” Kirkus

“The synthesis of anecdote and concrete advice takes the subject beyond the obvious...and the book’s breadth of suggestion will bolster kids as well as helping out adults. The breezy format, with its pull-out quotes, sidebars, sub-headings ...makes the book as accessible as its readers would like money to be.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“With its popular but little-covered topic, logical organization, and attractive style, this book is well worth the investment.” School Library Journal


THE KIDS' ALLOWANCE BOOK

TIPS FOR KIDS ON HOW TO MANAGE MONEY


This lively book answers families’ questions about allowances: How much to give? When to start? How to set it up? How to keep kids from blowing it? Written for kids, but vital for parents, the book’s advice comes from the Allowance All-Star Squad, 166 kids from around the country who have tackled allowance snags — and won. Their parents chime in, too, as do financial and psychology experts.

Practical, informative, accessible, with delightful illustrations by Debbie Palen, this book is for kids, but parents can pick up some helpful hints, too.

A fun yet important guide to a topic near and dear to kids and adults alike, a topic the author became an expert on both from first hand-experience as a mom giving allowances to her two sons, and also from more than a decade of writing about kids' money issues as a Associate Editor of ZILLIONS, the former kids' magazine published by CONSUMER REPORTS.
