Anthony has two dollars and three quarters and one dime and seven nickels and eighteen pennies. Nicholas has one dollar and two quarters and five dimes and five nickels and thirteen pennies.

Alexander has...bus tokens.

And even when he's rich, pretty soon all he has is bus tokens.

He was rich. Last Sunday.

Grandma Betty and Grandpa Louie

Overview

Anthony has two dollars and three quarters and one dime and seven nickels and eighteen pennies. Nicholas has one dollar and two quarters and five dimes and five nickels and thirteen pennies.

Alexander has...bus tokens.

And even when he's rich, pretty soon all he has is bus tokens.

He was rich. Last Sunday.

Grandma Betty and Grandpa Louie came and gave Anthony and Nicholas and Alexander each a dollar. Alexander was saving his. Maybe for a walkie-talkie.

And then there was bubble gum, some bets with Anthony and Nicholas (that Alexander lost), a snake rental, a garage sale, and all kinds of other things to spend money on.

And now all he has is bus tokens. When he used to be rich last Sunday.

I like this book, because it tought me not to spend money on things that I don't need.

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!

This book is excellent for tying the language arts curriculum to mathematics.

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.

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.

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.
