The Richest Man in Babylon, by George S. Clason.    Written in 1926 and, amazingly, still in print, this is a very good effort at distilling and communicating some of the most fundamental points regarding the accumulation of wealth.  Clason covers topics such as acquiring employable skills, planning and budgeting, saving, and investing, by relating to the reader a series of clever "Babylonian parables."  Although there are many adults who swear by this short and easy to read book, I think Clason's simple, amusing and clear style is naturally best suited for adolescents.  It would make a good gift for the grandkids.

"Babylon became the wealthiest city of the ancient world because its citizens were the richest people of their time ... They practiced sound financial principles in acquiring money, keeping money and making their money earn more money."
