Teach Your Child to Fish: Five Money Habits Every Child Should Master by Holly D. Reid is a tool for parents to teach their children the value of money and how to make good financial decisions. She uses scripture quotes from the Bible to support each chapter, such as “Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.” (Proverbs 21:5 NLT) as well as the one that lends itself to the title of the book, “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime.” (Chinese Proverb). The first few chapters teach lessons on the benefits of hard work and its rewards, and the difference between needs and wants. Each chapter is followed by activities that parents can use with their children to help enforce the habits that the lessons teach.
