Theme: Microfinance explained, in vivid color.
Who should read: Aimed at kids aged 4 to 8. But accessible to anyone.Smith puts a human face on microfinance, showing via the incredible success of a boy who received a microloan just how powerful the idea can be. It's also an excellent primer for teaching children about the value of working hard and saving money, and a nice change of pace from the typically tendentious business tome.
