Recommending Reading for Young Entrepreneurs (from the WSJ)

May 23, 2012

Looking for something interesting and beneficial for your kids to read this summer? Check out this list I have summarized from this WSJ article in Monday’s paper:


“Teen Business Blasts Off!” by Andrea Davis Pinkney and Amy Rosen – After researching, I found the book can be purchased for $5 here.

The Student Success Manifesto“* by Michael Simmons – For older kids (ages 15 – 21).

Kidpreneurs: Young Entrepreneurs With Big Ideas!* by Adam Toren – For the 5 to 13-year old crowd.

Growing Money: A Complete Investing Guide for Kids by Gail Karlitz and Debbie Honig – For 8 to 15-year olds.

Upstarts!: How GenY Entrepreneurs are Rocking the World of Business and 8 Ways You Can Profit from Their Success* by Donna Fenn – “…8 ways you can profit from their success,” has a negative sound to it (but it gets pretty high ratings on Amazon).

Business Model Generation: A Handbook for Visionaries, Game Changers, and Challengers* by Alexander Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur


The article closes out by mentioning several websites.

I have not read any of these books, nor have I spent a lot of time on any of the websites.

Do you know of any books or websites that you would recommend?
