    Bennett Zimmerman, Kathy Kamel

While designed with children in mind, this book is sure to become an adult favorite. "Go! Stock! Go! is terrific. It simply explains what seems confusing and makes it understandable. I have purchased several copies for my kids to read as well. I plan to pass this book on to the School Board so they can introduce this material for all the schools in our area." - Christine Gottfredson, BOOKTALK with Chris"One is never too young to learn about the value of money.
