The Bridge of the Golden Wood: A Parable on How to Earn a Living

Children/Young Adult; Business & Personal Finance; (Market)

(Careers, small business) “Masterful … An immensely appealing book because of its readable style … and its realistic but soft Asian-style illustrations.” – Crystie Cook, poet. Selected by the State of Vermont for career/financial literacy curriculum. A child with a knack for solving problems helps some hungry fish and finds a treasure. Illustrated folk tale teaches how to spot opportunities to help others and make money; comes with ideas for businesses; job ideas, money-making activities; and online resources on finding customers, managing money, career success, and moving up in an organization. Young children will be captivated by the story; older ones will want to apply the things they learn (for kids ages 4 and up). Teach someone to fish; this how-to picture book on the value of work bridges the gap between what kids learn in school about jobs, business, finance, economics—and what they should know (how to serve others). 530 English words in dyslexic-friendly font by former Silicon Valley recruiter and award-winning author Karl Beckstrand (Mini-mysteries for Minors [multicultural/bilingual series]), illustrations by Yaniv Cahoua and Karl Beckstrand.
