The newest title in the How Do series provides tons of ideas and over 20 tips and facts on how to make some extra cash by doing jobs or selling goods in your neighborhood.

About the How Do series: These fully illustrated nonfiction picture books are a great introduction to various STEM topics.

How Do Kids Make Money?

Does your child want to know how to make money by being an entrepreneur? This book introduces the reader to ways to make money. There are “Good Tips” throughout on how to get started and how to make money and not just break even.

I like that besides the obvious ones like babysitting or car washes, the book offers lesser suggested ideas such as tech support or holiday helper. The illustrations by Srimalie Bassani are adorable and very kid friendly.

At the end of the book is a money management section with different tips on making money, saving and even sharing the wealth. This is a good start to entrepreneurship for ages 8-12 but older kids will need something more detailed.
