IT'S NOT WHAT YOU'VE GOT! is the right length of book to start kids thinking about money in their lives without overwhelming them or making them think that money is an "adults only" topic. Kids expect interactivity, so this book would easily be a five-star app with just a few more interactive elements added: How about a quiz added to the end to see what kids have learned? Or a page for kids to draw their own vision board within the book after that topic is discussed?

Although there is, of course, talk about purchasing and having things -- in other words, being a consumer -- it's all framed in healthy messages, like only buy things you have the money to buy, some of the best things in life don't cost money, and don't be jealous of what others have. Overall the app is a great primer on money management and attitudes for elementary school-age kids.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
