Arkansas Reads One Book: CEO Playground Millionaire

Economics Arkansas is a lead partner of "Arkansas Reads One Book," a family financial literacy project.

In season 2, participants are reading CEO Cleo Edison Oliver, Playground Millionaire by Sundee T. Frazier. Fifth-grader Cleopatra Frazier is full of business ideas that range from the sale of homegrown avocados to a tooth-extracting franchise. Along the way, she and the readers learn important lessons about saving and budgeting, entrepreneurship, business management and business ethics.
