Economics Adventures for Young Explorers
Unlocking the Secrets of Smart Decisions Through the Economics Concepts Most Applicable to Daily Life
by Jula He

Engaging and fun to read, Economics Adventures for Young Explorers introduces young readers to foundational economic principles and their practical application in everyday life. With both personal and business contexts, the book unpacks how individuals, businesses, governments, and even countries use economics to support their needs and the needs of their local and global communities. Relevant and accessible to young and middle grade readers, this book introduces children to the idea of making choices about how to spend their money and manage their time. Broken down into four parts, the book applies the same approach to the many economic concepts it details: economic education, decision-making implications, and practical application on small and large scales. It equips children with the knowledge to provoke critical thinking and informed decision-making—prioritizing their own resources—by applying economic concepts in common childhood scenarios. The book’s focus on application in addition to theoretical explanation makes an unfamiliar and significant subject relatable, digestible, and meaningful to tweens and teens around the world, as well as provides an engaging and enjoyable reading experience. An incredible resource, the book is packed with definitions, contextual examples, and reflection opportunities and prompts, making it the perfect tool for parents, guardians, and educators to share with the young readers in their lives.
