Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
One of fourteen in the "Jr. Library of $Money" series, this title focuses on the basic financial concept of the cost of living and how it effects the lives of individuals. Other books in the series focus on key financial institutions and decision such as earning money, investing money, understanding credit, and so on. The twenty short chapters utilize bold photographs and illustrations and well researched text in an appealing layout to introduce basic financial concepts to upper elementary and middle school students. Concepts reviewed include: how much it costs to live, the history of inflation, the consumer price index, out on your own, and so on. New vocabulary is highlighted within the text and defined in a glossary at the end of the book. As the introduction states, "everyone needs a basic knowledge of our financial world" and recent developments in our economy illustrate the need for consumers of all ages to be as informed as possible. This series is a great introduction for students and can easily be expanded to hands-on learning by a creative teacher. In addition to the glossary, sources for further study, an index, picture credits, and info about the author and advisor are included. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
