Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Children know about getting goods from a store and also about getting services when needed. However, they may not understand how the processes work. This book hands out information on the subject in a basic manner that is quite comprehensible. Goods in the form of a house, car, notebooks, soap, and bananas are talked about. Services from an eye doctor and dentist and some public workers like police are also covered. In addition, children learn the definition of consumer and producer and can relate everyday experiences to those subjects. An excellent hands-on activity can be done alone or with all family members. The activity allows children to visualize how goods and services come into and go out of their homes. The "Learning about Money" series offers basic economic information with a reading level geared to grades 1-2 and an interest level targeted to K-3 youngsters. This book falls into Capstone's main book category called "First Facts." Found at the end of all books in the series is a page called "Amazing but True!" The page adds a bit of historic information about the topic. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 8.
