"What are you looking at?" asked the boy. "Trouble and treasure," said the old woman. Young children are captivated by the story; older ones want to apply the things they learn (for ages 4 and up, preschool - 12th grade). This illustrated folk tale on the value of work bridges the gap between what kids learn in school about business and finance--and what they should know (how to and serve others).

The perfect length picture book for children (not too long for adults): 26 full-color pages. Teach someone to fish. This children's book shows how to spot opportunities to help others, earn one's keep, and save money (financial literacy). End notes have ideas for businesses, money-making activities, plus online resources on career choices, managing money, finding customers, and moving up in an organization.
