Kids Reading

Every time a child goes to their parents for help, it has something to do with money. Kids tend to get their allowances from their parents when they are doing chores for them or when they are on their best behavior, but what happens when the allowance runs out and the child doesn't have any money to put into their savings? 

That's the time when you bring in a young financial expert to the forefront to talk about ways to maintain economic responsibility.

When school lets out for the summer, many students still have homework in the form of summer reading lists.

If an Atlanta author has her way, young people will have a much broader choice of reading material, including stories about children of color, children with special needs, and young people who speak different languages.

Writer Aisha Saeed is also cofounder of the group We Need Diverse Books. The organization was formed by a group of authors to address what they saw as a lack of diversity in reading material for children.
