Kid Trillionare - Book Review (Revisited)

Author: John Louzonis

Review By: Isabella (Age 13)

Hi there! I’m Isabella and today I’ll talk about my book review on Kid Trillionaire! This book is really helpful for people who want to make money or start an idea. 

The book gives really helpful advice on making money and teaching the do’s and don’ts. There are tons of people listed in there that are successful, and how they made money. It’s cool to find out all that happens to all these people and how they did unexpecting things to become like this. The lists of helpful advice on what makes you successful, cool ideas on what you could do. 

People who want to make money and not ask their parents for it can read this book, because of the reasons stated above! Kid Trillionaire is a short-ish book, so it won’t take too long to read. Meaning that a lot of information in there won’t take forever to read. 

After reading this book you might invent some new ideas on how to make money, and if you do, that’s great! There’s advice like, surround yourself with people who you want to become. For example, if you want to be an artist, surround yourself with people who also love doing art, if you want to become a writer, surround yourself with others who like to write. It helps because you can learn from others and share ideas, rather than by yourself. 

Hope you enjoy the book once you read it, I did. Thanks for reading my book review! Bye!

Rich Dad Poor Dad - Book Review

Author: Robert Kiyosaki

Review By: Charlotte (Age 10)

In this book, this kid has (what he calls) two dads. One is rich and the other is poor. The poor dad is his dad, and the rich dad is his best friend Mike's dad. For example, the poor dad would say things like 'I want to be rich but it will never happen'. The rich dad would say stuff like 'I want to be rich and will be rich!' Also sometimes the dads say very opposite words like 'the love of money is the root of all evil', and 'the lack of money is the root of all evil.' Out of those two, what one do you think would become rich? The rich dad of course because he has positive thoughts.

On with the story, Robert and Mike wanted to be rich, so what did they do? Think of how to make money of course. After a lot of thinking, Mike got an idea from a science book. They collected all of the toothpaste tubes in the neighbourhood and waited until they had enough. They thought that by making money, they could make fake nickels (American 5c coin) out of the lead (in those days toothpaste tubes were made of lead). Apparently, it was illegal because you can't just make fake money especially out of other people's toothpaste tubes.

Next on the list, they went to get help from rich dad. He paid them 10c per 3 hours, and Robert finally quit. Rich dad had a meeting with Robert and said ' don't work for money, let money work for you. My lesson for you was right there in front of you. Don't let money push you around, but smile and take the money.'

I thought this book was great and I recommend this book because it was about how money is important and teaches us new ways to make money. It also tells me that lessons can be right in front of your face even if you don't notice it.

Rich Kid Smart Kid - Book Review

Author: Robert T. Kiyosaki

Review By: Isabella (Age 11 and 1/2)

Hi, I'm Isabella, and today I will be sharing with you... my book review on Right Kid Smart Kid! This book is from the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad. Robert T. Kiyosaki. In Rich Kid Smart Kid, he talks about ways that kids can start making money.

He also tells you interesting facts that will help kids to know how to make money, and some things that you could do. He talks so that you can understand him and teaches you a lot of things that some adults and kids don't know. He talks about some lessons that he heard when he was a kid.

His books are not boring but are actually quite interesting. This book is mainly for adults, but children can read it too. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, no matter how old they are. The reason I recommend this is because it teaches kids and even adults the secrets of money.

This is a good book to read because if you get fired, lose your job, can't pay bills or anything else, then this book will help you. Maybe it's because you don't want to lose money WHEN you don't have a job. Robert T. Kiyosaki will tell you some good choices and some that you shouldn't choose.

In his book, he sometimes writes down the interviews he's had with people. It's great to learn how to invest and make money. If you want to make money or never worry about losing your job, then you can get this book to help you!

The Richest Man In Babylon - Book Review

Author: George S. Clason

Review By: Isabella (Age: 11 1/2)

My name is Isabella, and today I will be sharing with you… my book review on The Richest Man In Babylon. This book helps people to make money and become rich. I don’t fully understand the book though. There is a lot of old English in the book, for example, keepeth, thy and more.

People older than me will understand this book. But basically, this book is about the richest man in Babylon, and that person telling others stories and telling them how he makes money.

I don’t really know how this goes because I can’t understand it. I will read it in the future to understand it more. I hope you have a fun time reading it, and that you learn a lot!

The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying

Author: Marie Kondo

Review By: Isabella (Age 12)

Hi, my name is Isabella, and today I will be sharing with you... my book review on The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying! You can sort of tell by the title that this book is about cleaning up and keeping your house tidy. I would say the age group for this is, well, anyone! It is super easy to read, and understandable.

The book is really interesting and can actually help with your tidying skills. The author shares tips that will help make your house look tidier, and to stay like that! The author has private classes, and she would visit homes to help clean up. This book was written in 2014, and it's probably still relevant today.

The book is easy to read and I thought the way she does things is interesting. For example, one of her tips is that you should put your socks in a box, facing vertical, so that they won't be stuffed in drawers or squashed together. There are lots of tips to help with your house, and she even has reviews of the client's homes when she attended to fix those problems.

Before I finish I just want to say that I really enjoyed the book. I hope that it will help you and that you will enjoy it as well. Thank you for reading my review!

Man's Search For Meaning

Author: Victor E. Frankl

Review By: Isabella

Hi, my name is Isabella and I will be sharing with you... my book review on Man's Search For Meaning. This book is about a person, a man, who is in a concentration camp in the second world war. A concentration camp is a camp, keeping war prisoners to do labour and to work. This is a true story and the man in there talks about how he figured out the meaning of life.

He speaks about his experience in the concentration camp. I think this book is good if you feel down in life and would like to find out your meaning of life.
I enjoyed the book, but sometimes I couldn't understand some things, so I would recommend this to ages 13 or older. Of course, you can read it if you are younger, but it might be more difficult to read.

In the concentration camp, he is a doctor, so he helps people from dying. After they had escaped from the concentration camp, a long while after, he was still a doctor, so he helped people to feel better because, at the time, people wanted to commit suicide. Youch. Some of them hated their lives, but after speaking to him, and finding the meaning of life, they changed. I hope you like reading this book. Bye!

The Impossible First – Book Review

Author: Colin O'Brady

Review By: Isabella (Age 12)

Hi, my name is Isabella and I will be sharing with you... my book review on The Impossible First! This book is about a man who walked across Antarctica by himself with only some essential supplies to keep him alive. He walked around 1500km across Antarctica and was also the first and only person to cross the southern continent alone.

This is a true story and the time that was set in the book was 2018. He partly writes about his accident in Thailand where he burns himself badly and yet he still persists to achieve this record.

As it is incredibly hard to cross Antarctica by yourself, he went through months of training for the cold adventure. Some complicated things he did included sitting against a wall doing something tricky with his hands... you’ll find out in the book. He also made Colin Bars which are nutritional bars to give him the number of calories he needed for the trip.

In Antarctica, he had to defrost snow to make water. He has a sled that carried all his supplies; his tent, food and anything else he needed to survive this long journey.

So, if you want to find out how this true story goes, then get the book, this book was certainly one that was interesting. The only person or living thing that he saw was his challenger. They were competing against each other and that was partly why he decided to take this challenge in the first place.

So when you do get this book, I hope you have fun reading it! Bye!

Made to Stick

Author: Chip and Dan Heath

Review by: Isabella (Age 12)

Hi my name is Isabella and I will be sharing with you… my book review on Made to Stick! 

This book is really fascinating because there are lots of stories in it that help with knowing what sticks. It talks about ideas that stick and ideas that don’t. Also, it talks about how to make your idea stick. 

I would recommend this book to anyone age 8 or older because it’s easy to read, but there are a few words that are difficult. 

Some stories are about things that are interesting and are sticky, and there are some stories that have two messages, then they compare which is the stickier one. They have stories about worms being in MacDonald burgers and why that idea stuck, and the company had to find a stickier idea to make the other idea not sticky.

What makes it interesting is the stories they include, the stories are sticky, and they explain why. 

They teach quite a lot in there, it’s very fascinating. Overall, I would give this book an 8 ½ out of 10. It’s very educational, but there are some things I don’t like about it. It’s a bit long and some stories in there aren’t very good. I like some of the stories because it’s compelling and also educational. Read the book to find out! 

When you get the book, enjoy it! Bye!

Project Based Homeschooling

Author: Lori Pickert

Review By: Isabella

Hello! Today I will be sharing with you… my book review on Project Based Homeschooling!

This book is about homeschooling and, well, doing projects. I think it’s pretty interesting because it’s easy to read and has quite a few pictures as well. 

Although the book was easy to read and understand, it’s mainly for adults to help with their kids when they’re homeschooling. It talks about projects you can do, where, tips on how to help your child with their project and more. The book talks about how to help your child do well in homeschooling. 

It gave me a lot of ideas on what I could do for a business, and cool activities I could work on. I love arts and drawing, so I thought about making little things with clay, resin and other materials. 

For a rating I would choose 7/10 because it was a pretty good book with good ideas and was interesting, but it’s mainly for adults and some things were confusing. 

Overall I think that parents should read this, and maybe some older kids to get an understanding of these projects. It seems really helpful, though!

Thanks for reading this! Bye!

The Five Love Languages

Author: Gary Chapman

Review By: Isabella

Hello! Today I will be sharing with you… my book review on The Five Love Languages!

This book is pretty interesting and easy to understand. It talks about all the love languages that people have. Like quality time, acts of service, physical touch, receiving gifts and words of affirmation.

It talks about what all the love languages mean and which one you could have. Basically, if you like spending time with your friends or family, and if it makes you happy and feeling loved, then your love language is quality time, and so on. 

The book is pretty interesting because the author is great at explaining everything. There are lots of conversations written into the book that are easy to read. I would rate this 8/10 because of the conversations in there and it was nice and easy to read. I also think the age rating for this book is 8+ because it’s easy to read, but it would be harder to understand by the younger kids. 

Thanks for reading. Bye!

Think and Grow Rich

Author: Napoleon Hill

Review by: Me (Isabella)

Hi there! Today I’ll be showing my book review on “Think and Grow Rich”! 

This book is pretty fun to read and is quite short. It talks mainly about having faith in yourself, and if you want something, to have the desire for it. A few things I learned from the book were very educating. One of the things was faith is the only cure to failure. This is very true because the only way you fail is because you don’t have faith. So when you do, you won’t fail! 

Another thing is to, of course, be patient and persistent. If you were at a restaurant waiting for food, but there is a long line, the only way to get to order your food is to be patient and persistent. 

I’ll tell you a few more things this book can teach you (not all of them though). When making a plan use your imagination, be creative because then you’ll be closer to success! It’s also easier than deciding what to do on the spot. 

A quote I found in the book was really cool, “tell the world what you intend to do, but first show it”. Basically show what you intend to do before you say anything. It’s a pretty smart quote. 

That sums up some from the book! Read the rest to find out!

I would give this a 9/10 because the book was really informative and not too long!

Thanks for reading my review on “Think and grow rich”!

Think and Grow Rich

Author: Napoleon Hill

Review by: Charlotte (Age 11)

Think and Grow Rich book review, by Napoleon Hill, book review by me, Charlotte, age 11. This very good book written by a successful man has everything you need to be able to be rich when you’re older. You could even start now! Napoleon Hill interviewed 500 men and they all had similar ways to get rich, they all started poor and had little education. In the book, Napoleon Hill talks about how Henry Ford and his engineers never gave up, they had to persist a LOT! No one man in this book did inventions by themselves (meaning that all the inventions that were created, needed more than one man).

 This book has a whole chapter about faith and how it could be developed where it doesn’t already exist. If you don’t think you can have faith, well choose another word than impossible, because that is definitely the WRONG word!

This book is very inspiring because of all the quotes and the way they all talk and think positively. My favourite quote in this book was Henely’s quote: “I am the master of my fate, the captain of my soul”.

I found 7 major positive and negative emotions in this amazing successful book. I chose my two best to share with you. My favourite positive emotions are: hope and love. The worst negative emotions I found are: revenge and greed.

I found this book great because there are so many different types of chapters about how to live life, and they all were so great. Read this book and you might be inspired to write a book like this one.

Persistence is a state of mind. Meaning that you live life never giving up, and that’s what I want you guys to do.



Author: Anik Singal

Review by: Charlotte (Age 12)

The famous book eSCAPE by Anik Singal has lots of facts and great information about how to be a successful entrepreneur. Anik helps keep the book fun by sharing his past into a story and talking about his problems that he wished he had a solution for. So right now I’m going to share with you some important knowledge I learned.

Firstly, I never actually realised we did this until I read his book, we always put things off for tomorrow! We need to live today and forget about tomorrow, if we always say “I don’t know I’m kind of tired, I bet tomorrow I’ll feel in the spirit”, then you’ll just think that every day. The secret is, take action.

Okay, I know that your parents and teachers may have told you this before, but mistakes are incredible! Anik will tell you all the benefits of mistakes and the reason why they turn out to be amazing. Also, do-not-give-up. Giving up is the worst part, you’ll never get to where you want to go if you keep up with this negative behaviour, you’ll also know that negative people are the worst to be around. You do not want to be avoided because of your negative behaviour. Even if you do fail, great failures lead to an even better success. So keep faith in yourself. If you ever do want to give up, I’ve learned from this book that talking to someone is the best option. That person you talk to may have experience and might know the solution to your problem.

A little spark, or an idea will lead to success. If you don’t think this is true, listen up. Your little idea might as well start small (like all other businesses) but if you invest then slowly by slowly your little spark will grow massive. Don’t waste time either, this will slow you down and make you think bad things. But just remember, this wouldn’t have worked without taking action.

Taking risks are not bad at all, and this also kind of links in with making mistakes. If you take risks, mistakes will come but you will learn from them and it will teach you to become stronger than ever. Risks are how most people get started. You see, you need to have that power to be able to not just focus on being scared, but to be out there and ready.

Making an open declaration is good. Without doing this, you won’t believe yourself and you’ll keep doing the same things over and over. If you say “I will get $100,000 more this year” then you’ll keep working on it and won’t give up.

It’s not about finding the right answers that matters, but think about the right questions to ask yourself. If you have the right answers then it won’t really matter or make sense if your questions aren’t on point, will it? A great question you could ask yourself is, WHY? Why did you fail? Why did you not get enough money on time? Why is your business not taking off? Well looking for jobs that aren’t out there and that people need is one solution.

Onto my persuasion side. Did you know that only 26% of poor people love to read? And only 2% of poor people read at least 30 minutes a day? Why do you think this is, this could actually be the reason why they’re without a home, begging on the streets for money.

If you’re juggling lots of projects at home, here is Anik’s solution for you. Focus on one at a time and once you succeed then go on to your next one. It’ll take less time and create more money income! Okay, and let’s say you do end up becoming an entrepreneur, here is one thing to keep in mind. Leaders have no one else to blame except themselves. Think about this.

This is the last message I found from reading eSCAPE. To be an entrepreneur it’s not about what you do, but who you are. Or what kind of a person you are.

I hope you understand the power of this book and Anik Singal wanted you to have it the easy way because he did not.
