ABOUT THE AUTHOR
David W. Bianchi
David W. Bianchi is the author of “Blue Chip Kids, What Every Child and Parent Should Know About Money, Investing and The Stock Market.” As the father of a 12 year old, he was frustrated by the fact that his son was learning nothing about money and investing in school and there were no financial literacy classes on the horizon. His solution: he would teach it himself. What started out as a modest plan to “write a few pages,” ultimately lead to this book with 100 topics and 160 kid-friendly illustrations.
