Little Kid Reaction
None offered by this reviewer.
Big Kid Reaction
At one point, I felt myself checking my own finances to see if I was on the right track to financial freedom through asset-building versus liability-building! The reader’s choice is simple: either continue to run from paycheck to paycheck or create financial building blocks to pave your way to financial independence. The ending is a little overdone, in my opinion, as a child without financial knowledge might not have the wherewithal to open an ice cream stand after one month.

The narrative is easy to follow and the illustrations are appropriate to the subject matter.
