Product Description:

There are so many valuable lessons here for kid-preneurs! Written in a way that kids will understand, the pages are colorful and clear, with illustrations and text boxes making it visually appealing. I liked the timeline at the beginning that goes from early bartering for goods to social media! There are many examples of entrepreneurs' stories that kids will know like George Washington and Steve Jobs. I really loved how they walk students through the steps to plan their business, starting with a personality quiz and an honest self evaluation of your strengths. This is followed by brainstorming, evaluating your ideas, then writing an overview and summary. Other topics covered include: customers and competition, marketing and communication, and managing the money you make. Each step includes a project for the reader to complete. At the least, this book will be a great education in some basic business principals, and at the best, you groom and watch blossom a possible career for your child or student! Sc, 122pp ~Sara

Publisher Description:

From the early days of traders and trappers to today's global online marketplace, business is the glue that holds our world together. In Entrepreneurship: Create Your Own Business, children learn what it takes to transform a great idea into their own new business. Through plenty of hands-on activities, art and history meet economics and math while young readers gain a solid understanding of how a business works.

Kids use familiar resources to develop a business idea of their own, create a presentation for potential investors, and utilize basic cost and price analysis worksheets. The skills they learn by writing a business plan, creating a prototype of an item to sell, designing packaging, and finding ways to advertise their products translate into language, math, and problem-solving skills that are relevant across all subjects. Cartoon illustrations, fun facts, and interviews with successful entrepreneurs make Entrepreneurship entertaining and informative. Supplemental materials include a glossary, list of resources, and an index.

Entrepreneurship meets common core state standards in language arts for reading informational text and literary nonfiction; Guided Reading Levels and Lexile measurements indicate grade level and text complexity.
