According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 60 percent of the American youth labor force (ages 16‒24) are employed during summer months. In fact, between April and July of last year, the labor force grew by 14.5 percent. We know many will spend their earnings on food, fashion, fuel, and fun.
However, long before they are working age, young people need to know how money works.
The How Do We Use Money?series from Searchlight Books teaches elementary age students the basic principles of healthy spending habits. This four book series teaches kids how to save, spend, and build their own budget. Plus, we have fun “extras” and free resources to help you get the conversation started.
