Kidpreneurs: Young Entrepreneurs with Big Ideas is packed with incredible graphics, creativity and superb content. When brothers and entrepreneurs Adam and Matthew Toren couldn’t find a book about starting your own business for young readers they decided to write one. Although not explicitly stated anywhere on the book, I would recommend Kidpreneurs for young children between the ages of 8-13.
One aspect of the book that really jumped out at me was the graphics. The kid-friendly design is colorful, playful and page turning. Similarly, the structure of Kidpreneurs is very easy to follow. For example, it defines what an entrepreneur is, lays out the steps to get started as one, offers sample businesses (lawn care, window washing and dog walking) and explains how to use the internet for business purposes.
I also really like the interactivity of the book. The reader is encouraged to fill out cute forms such as talents, ideas and even a simple business plan. At the end of each chapter, you can take a short quiz to check your understanding and see if you are ready to move on to the next.
Adam and Matthew really hit the point in trying to teach young kids what entrepreneurs are and how to become one. To learn more about this book please visit: www.kidpreneurs.org
*For older kids 14+, I would highly recommend The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur.
