(Careers, business) “Masterful … An immensely appealing book because of its readable style … and its realistic but soft Asian-style illustrations.” – Crystie Cook, poet.
Selected by Vermont’s Office of Treasurer for financial literacy curriculum. A child with a knack for solving problems helps some hungry fish and finds a treasure. Illustrated folk tale teaches how to spot opportunities to help others and make money; comes with ideas for businesses; job ideas, money-making activities; and online resources on finding customers, managing money, career success, and moving up in an organization (for kids ages 4 and up). Young children will be captivated by the story; older ones will want to apply the things they learn. Teach someone to fish. A great graduation gift; this how-to book on the value of work bridges the gap between what kids learn in school about jobs, small business, finance, economics, and what they should know (how to serve others). 530 English words in dyslexic-friendly font by former Silicon Valley recruiter and award-winning author Karl Beckstrand (Mini-mysteries for Minors [multicultural/bilingual series]), illustrations by Yaniv Cahoua and Karl Beckstrand. 99 cents
