My Review:

Secret Millionaires Club is a show that airs on The Hub, but I've never watched it on television.  After watching it on DVD, I was impressed with how good money values are instilled into the character's lives and how they are led to make wise choices about money.  I've never heard of acclaimed financial executive Warren Buffet so I can't say how his character in the show compares to his real life personality but he doles out good advice and tips that the younger generation can learn from.  I think children need to be taught the value of a dollar at an early age and this DVD is a good example of doing it in a way that kids can relate to.

I've seen commercials for it, but we've never watched it on tv either. This makes me want to check out an episode, though.
