(Careers, financial literacy) “Masterful…an immensely appealing book because of its readable style…and its realistic but soft Asian-style illustrations.” – Crystie Cook, poet. Selected by the State of Vermont for primary school career/economics curriculum. “What are you looking at?” asked the boy. “Trouble and treasure,” said the old woman. A child with a knack for solving problems helps some hungry fish and discovers riches.
Young children are captivated by the story; older ones want to apply the things they learn (for kids ages 4 and up/ESL, preschool – 12th grade). This illustrated folk tale on the value of work bridges the gap between what kids learn in school about jobs, small business, and finance—and what they should know (how to serve others). Teach someone to fish; this picture book teaches how to spot opportunities to help others and make money. End notes have ideas for businesses, jobs, money-making activities, and online resources on career choices, managing money, finding customers, and moving up in an organization.
