A Smart Girl's Guide
to Money


by Nancy Holyoke & Sarah Hunt

This American Girl title provides an engaging and accessible introduction to a range of personal finance topics like becoming a smart shopper, making money (incl 101 tips!), saving and investing, etc. The format is interactive, with short quizzes that help readers assess learning and determine their own relationships with money. 

School Library Journal called it "an excellent tool to promote the concept of saving money and having it work for you." And Booklist called the book "an engaging introduction to personal economics."

Note: If you want to use this book in teaching, you need to take the title literally! With all the talk of clothing, makeup and shopping, this is definitely aimed at girls.
