Understanding finance isn’t easy. Lately, I’ve been teaching my oldest child about financial education and money management. All this knowledge can be overwhelming. Therefore I’ve put together a list of personal finance books that she should definitely check out.
Growing up I was never really taught good habits about money management. Therefore I had to self-educate myself and that’s where my love for financial books arisen.
These books were in my collection and I felt they would be awesome books to hand over to my daughter. Each of these books is different. Some a bit more complicated than others, but nothing too complicated that she can’t handle. I told her learning about money is like exercise. You have to find a workout you love. Otherwise, you’ll hate working out. It’s just like managing your money. Some people love simplicity while others want something more challenging and want to account their money down to the penny.
