Make Your Own Money

How Kids Can Earn It, Save It, Spend It, and Dream Big, with Danny Dollar, the King of Cha-Ching

By Ty Allan Jackson

Illustrated by Nicole Miles

Award-winning author and charismatic motivational speaker Ty Allan Jackson created the young fictional character Danny Dollar, who has inspired countless children around the world to make, save, and spend money wisely, and to dream big. Now the “King of Cha-Ching” returns to take kids on a how-to journey toward financial literacy, with tips and guidance for making money and minding their own businesses. With Danny as their money-savvy guide, readers get answers to questions like “What is money?”, “How do I make money?”, and “Why should I become an entrepreneur?” This lively, easy-to-read blueprint for financial success provides creative and practical tips for earning money by starting a business, and even covers how to write a business plan, raise start-up money, and understand profit and loss. It also teaches important economic vocabulary (needs vs. wants, goods vs. services) as well as essential life skills for handling money (how to open a bank account, create a budget, invest, and donate).
