The chapters in the book include the following-

· How Grown-Ups Earn Money (Love this title)
· Are You an Entrepreneur?
· Getting Started
· Sample Businesses You Can Create!
· Money on the Internet
· Green Business and Ethics (Great addition)
· Networking (Very important)

This is a charming and informative book–it’s visually appealing for younger kids. A video regarding the book can be seen here.
The Kidpreneurs Parent/Teacher Guide, is a great companion to the book, and it helps both you and your kids, make the most of the Kidpreneurs book. The guide contains over 100 pages of fun activities, reproducible worksheets, and complete instructions to help you guide your kids in their entrepreneurial journey.
Both books are written by Adam and Matthew Toren. The Torens pride themselves as being “serial entrpreneurs”. They are the founders of YoungEntrepreneur.com – the largest and fastest growing social networking forum for young entrepreneurs, as well as Blogtrepreneur.com – a blog that helps Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners, and of course Kidpreneurs.org – a site for Young Entrepreneurs with BIG ideas!
As the Torens state, “You’ve heard the saying, It’s never too late. We say, It’s never too early! Even children can be introduced to basic business principles and the rewards of entrepreneurship!”
Several children have left reviews on the kidpreneurs.org site. One of them writes, “Kidpreneurs has assisted me in learning the important factors of starting a business, I think all kids should read this book.” – Alexis T. (10 years old)
Gotta love it! In fact, I don’t think I need to add anything more!
And of course, fun learning is forever learning.
