Teaching Kids to Buy Stocks: Stories and Lessons for Grown-Ups is a nonfiction educational finance book written by J. J. Wenrich. The author has been in the investing business for over 20 years; he's a Certified Financial Planner and motivational speaker. The author’s interest in the stock market began when he was a child watching one of four TV channels available to folks living in Wichita. In those days, news broadcasts were all the stations aired from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm, and for him the stock market was the most fascinating aspect of those daily news programs. His seventh-grade teacher, Mrs. Brown, helped to further demystify the stock trading for Wenrich and the rest of his class. She had them participate in Kansas State stock market game for high school and junior high students. She also arranged for a stockbroker to speak to his class and show them how to pick stocks. Wenrich was hooked.

Teaching Kids to Buy Stocks: Stories and Lessons for Grown-Ups is a must-read for anyone who’s ever wondered what they could achieve if they knew how to invest in the stock market. Most of us are intimidated by the process or have had unfortunate experiences in the past. My own foray into investing was based on, yes, a hot tip, and while I did learn quite a lot from following that ultimately doomed stock, it was overall discouraging, to say the least. Wenrich’s book was what I really needed back then and am thrilled to find now. He makes no assumptions about one’s knowledge of terminology and strategy, and he does a marvelous job of demystifying the stock market. His book is well-written, and his conversational manner of coaching makes the reader feel as if he’s being personally tutored throughout the reading experience. Wenrich opens up that rarified world of the stock market to anyone willing to take the time to read his book, and he does so brilliantly. Teaching Kids to Buy Stocks: Stories and Lessons for Grown-Ups is most highly recommended.
