Editorial Reviews

Kay Weisman
Written in the style of a treasurer's report as interpreted by second-grader Susan Olson, this hilarious picture book details the trials and triumphs of a group of children attempting to raise money for a trip to the Statue of Liberty. Although their fund-raising strategies seem ordinary enough a recycled paper drive, a lemonade stand, a candy sale, a car wash, baby-sitting, and dog walking, the results are decidedly "extra-ordinary": a cat falls into the lemonade, no one will trust a second-grader to baby-sit or walk a dog, and one of the cars being washed rolls into the doors of the First National Bank. Fortunately, the errant auto also foils a bank robbery, thus earning the class a reward sufficient to pay for the trip. Slavin's expressive, watercolor-and-ink illustrations mesh perfectly with Zimelman's deadpan text. A great choice for read-alouds, this will also make an excellent introduction to primary units on money.

    Great story

    This is a great story that gets students to think about different ways to save up money I would definitely encourage this book to teach students about the value of money.
