Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One of six in the "Understanding Money" series, this title focuses on how our economy is structured and how individuals earn money by producing goods and services. An eye-catching layout, color photos, a question and answer format, and plenty of charts and graphs combine to create an interesting, up-to-date introduction to the world of economics for elementary students. The twelve short chapters begin by discussing the production of goods and services and how individuals earn money to buy these goods and services. A brief history of how work has changed over the centuries, occupational changes since 1900, contemporary ways of earning money, wage earners in the public sector, working for oneself, how earnings are determined, individuals unable to earn money, and how this all affects young students is briefly discussed. Supply and demand and minimum wage are mentioned but should have been afforded more importance. As this is an introductory series it will be up to a teacher to expand when necessary. Features such as problems to solve, boxed information and helpful hints, a summary section, glossary of terms, an index, and sources for further study are included. It is a well rounded introduction to the subject, with plenty of inspiration for further discussion. Some repetition throughout the series reinforces important concepts. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
