For Parents/Guardians of Girls: 

BOOK: It’s A Money Thing!, illustrated by Susan Estelle Kwas and published by Chronicle Books, is designed to convey that one of the most important things a teenage girl can do for herself is learn about money  – how to make it, save it, invest it and spend it wisely.  Through engaging and practical exercises, this guide teaches young girls valuable lessons to help them lead financially secure and independent lives.  Financial and economic literacy are skills that can be developed and honed with practice, and It’s A Money Thing! is a great start – it is fun, engaging and educational!
