Teen Finance Series

Tips for a Successful Financial Life

Financial literacy has never been more important. Today’s teens face increasingly complex financial challenges and opportunities. The Omnigraphics Teen Finance Series was developed to help students understand basic economic principles and learn how these principles apply to their own lives.

Each volume in the Teen Finance Series presents topics designed to help teens develop the skills necessary to manage their money wisely and plan for a secure financial future. These books are authoritative, well-organized, and easy-to use. Each volume deals comprehensively with a high-interest topic, with a detailed contents section that will lead readers directly to the information they need. Each volume includes articles on a wide range of relevant topics written by authoritative sources. These articles are written in a straightforward, easy-to-read style, with headings, sidebars, definitions, and illustrations that break up the text and convey facts in different ways. Teens and other readers will find the volumes in the Teen Finance Series to be excellent resources for reference, research, and personal information.

Thoroughly updated and expanded in 2017, this practical financial resource for adolescents will join our flagship Health Reference Series on our new online platform this Fall.

Schools and libraries that purchase any newly updated Teen Finance Series print volume will automatically have access to the same high value content online FOR FREE.

For no extra cost beyond the initial print purchase, libraries and schools can build their own online teen finance resource tailored to their community’s needs.  Buy only the volumes you want, and, unlike many subscription databases, don’t pay for content you don’t need.  You’re in control!

Easy Integration with Teen Health Series!

Our Omnigraphics Online platform will allow users to search seamlessly across all available series and deep-dive individual volumes.  So you can use your institution’s demographics to create your own worthwhile resource for teens and their caregivers looking to make the best choices, whether medical or financial, at this stage of life.
