Baby Do My Banking

Baby Do My Banking - coverBaby Do My Banking
Baby Be Of Use
Brown
2006

Yes, this is a humor book. And it’s funny! It is a board book that suggests that Baby should take over the family’s finances. Open a new account! Apply for a home equity loan! And a penny for baby’s trouble. Baby didn’t have anything better to do, after all.

This is weird, for sure, but cute that it’s a board book as if it’s really “for” a baby. What will they think of next?

This Book isn’t About Sex

Sex of the Dollar
Street-Smart Financial Planning For Women
Blau
1988

This is one of those books that will use a sexy title to get folks to read something boring. Then the subtitle gives the real story. Clever. Now, money is “sexy”. Of course financial planning is important, and women might have different needs from men, especially if they are not primary breadwinners. 1988 is beyond old for any book dealing with finances.

Show me the money!
