Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
The rhyming text of this early reader encourages kids to count out a dollar in coins. A great resource for parents and teachers exploring money and currency, this book also includes an introduction to the new Sacajawea dollar coin. 2001, Charlesbridge Publishing, $6.95. Ages 5 to 8. Reviewer: M. Thomas SOURCE: Parent Council, September 2001 (Vol. 9, No. 1)
Children's Literature
One of the things that all children are aware of is money. Everyday of their lives they are exposed to coins. This unique book offers the young reader the opportunity to see the coins in detail and to appreciate their value. The book begins with counting pennies in relation to a nickel and then to a dime. Then nickels and dimes in relation to quarters; all denominations in relation to a fifty cent piece; and finally how many coins does it take to make a dollar. Every option for pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters is illustrated in words and numbers. The coins are written in words and numbers next to their "realistic" portrayal. The end of the book puts the coins in vertical stacks with their value. This book is a good way to introduce simple math to children. To make the book even more appealing, it is written in rhyme. I would recommend this as a good tool for elementary teachers. 2001, Charlesbridge Publishing, $6.95. Ages 6 to 9. Reviewer: Karen Werner
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Simple rhymes and large, clear photographs instruct children in coin denominations, grouping, and counting. The text begins with an introduction to pennies and soon adds nickels and dimes, quarters, and half dollars to show how larger denominations take form. Coins are arranged in sets with visual equations illustrating their mathematical equivalents. By the book's end, children are asked to think of the many ways a dollar is made (100 pennies, 4 quarters, etc.). Both teachers and parents will find this book valuable as an introductory lesson on money.-Ilene Abramson, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    The best introductory coin book I've seen

    I'm seen most of the books available on coins for kids, as one of my children has alot of trouble in this area and I'm always looking for THE magic book that will help her understand. This book is the best one I've seen for explaining coin values and which combinations of coins are equivalent. It has nice, clear, life-sized photos of pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, half dollars, and Golden Dollars, showing both the fronts and backs of the coins, and including some photos of the new state quarters. Each time it shows how much a coin, or combination of coins is worth, the names of the coins, as well as how much they are worth in cents, is printed beneath the picture of the coin. Explanations are in pleasant, simple rhymes, such as: 'Two dimes and a nickel make one quarter, too. So do five nickels, five nickels for you!'
