Kidz Corner

 

Do you have kids or nieces/nephews or younger siblings? 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.

 

Some of these titles are available through our library's ebook collections. Any title listed with the Call number "Available online" is available as an ebook from the LaGuardia Library. Just click on the title and log in to start reading.

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:
