Do you have kids or nieces or nephews? Children begin to learn financial literacy concepts as early as age 3, and their basic money habits may be formed by age 7. But it's not too late to learn better habits whether they're a tot or a teen. Here are some resources to help kids learn about money and how to manage it.

MONEY AS YOU GROW BOOK CLUB

For children 4-10. The Money as You Grow book club uses children’s books to help families learn key money concepts through reading, play, and quiet one-on-one talks. You can use the book guides at home. Browse through the book list and choose one you'd like to read with your child. The books should be readily available at a local library or bookstore.

Then, download the discussion guide to print out or read on your screen. Each guide contains tips for reading the book and suggests questions to ask your child as you read and after you're finished.

The LaGuardia Library has the following books from the Money As You Grow Book Club list:

 

This guide to personal finance and entrepreneurship resources was created in conjunction with the MoneyBoss series of personal finance and entrepreneurship workshops Spring 2017 but is designed to be used by anyone looking for good resources on these topics.

Browse using the topic menu tabs or use the search box above if you're not sure where needed information might be on the guide. If you'd rather browse websites, we have a list of good places to start below.
