Full-Text Reviews
Horn Book Guide (Spring 2015)
These bland-looking volumes provide useful, practical advice about topics related to "financial literacy." The direct-address texts ("Even though you work and make money, do you sometimes feel like you never have any cash?") are accessible if a little dry. Sidebars provide "good sense" and "nonsense" tips; word problem "Do the Math" exercises allow readers to practice applying what they've learned. Reading list, websites. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Be Smart About Money and Financial Literacy titles: Be Smart About Your Career, Be Smart About Your Future, Be Smart About Money, Be Smart About Credit, Be Smart About Investing, and Be Smart About Shopping.]
