    Not Quite as fun as The Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

    This was a good book, though not as much fun as the Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. It was a theme gift so I bought a cute little kids style cash box from Kazoo, some stickers to personalize the box and a roll of quarters inside the cash box and the book to go along.

    Great fun and a great way to teach money

    My kids love all of the Alexander books and this one has the added bonus of teaching about money too. My daughters (now 5 and almost 7) have enjoyed the books for several years. This one not only teaches about how easy it is to squander your money away, but it painlessly teaches coin values, subtraction and more subtle math. Any child with siblings will relate to poor Alexander and his brotherly woes too. A favorite around here!

    The best book in town!

    I like it so much, I read it in front of the class. I like the part where he bought unrefundable bottles to Friendly market. The people there aren't so friendly.

    Rock'in Homeschool Book

    This book was purchased to enhance a homeschool math lesson. It was easy to adapt it to also use in our English lesson. We used it over a weeks time and found it interesting and fun to read and analyze it for multiple lessons. I would use this book again due to it's adaptability.
