Inspiring young minds to invest
Tamra Orr engages young readers with relevant topics and youthful expressions to engage their interest. She strikes up a conversation between two young students at school, sharing, “Tim was giggling…I own part of McDonald’s.” “You____ don’t!” called Sasha. “…My grandmother bought me some McDonalds stock for my birthday…”
By defining terms in simple language, Tamara informs young readers without boring them. This will work for adults too. Explaining what a stock is, she notes, “It’s a part of a business that other people can buy.”
Orr provides simple, practical advice anyone can follow to help readers apply her principles. She focuses on investing in the stock market, suggesting, “If you don’t have the money right now, you can still read up on the market. Pretend you have the money and then follow the market to see what would have happened. ..”
Tamra has a keen ability to focus on aspects that catch young people’s attention. In one instance, she focuses on the opportunity to vote on corporate matters, revealing: “Owning even a small part of a company can be exciting. In many companies, owning a single share is enough to buy you voting rights…your vote could ultimately affect whether McDonald’s adds another chicken sandwich or a new type of pie!” The promise of child empowerment.
Children and adults are educated and encouraged to start investing. Orr quips, “It’s never too soon.”
