J.J. Wenrich has been teaching his kids how to buy stocks since they were little. Using the wisdom he gained in working in the investment field, he started with simple concepts to get them interested, and soon they were more savvy than the average adult. In Teaching Kids to Buy Stocks, he shares his wisdom with the rest of us.

This informative book covers ideas such as compound interest, stocks and bonds, earnings and dividends, and following the story of a company and its stock. It touches on bull and bear markets, and when to buy or sell. But mostly, it demystifies the process and turns it into something fun that kids and adults can enjoy learning from.

Although the book is geared toward actually working with kids, adults will find great benefit in reading Teaching Kids to Buy Stocks since it makes confusing topics manageable and understandable for the non-investor. I highly recommend it.
