Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Brenda Sowry
Do you know that there are two types of inflation? Ever heard of hyperinflation? We have heard a lot about the economic crisis these days, but do we know how it was caused? Children hearing about the "economic crisis" on the news may think it has nothing to do with them. Those children who have had to move because of "foreclosure," or whose parents have lost their jobs, know the effects of the economic crisis, but probably do not understand why all of this is happening. How do we explain our economy and the current crisis to our children? Combining current events with the "Economy in Action" series will provide them with the basics necessary to understand the situation. The series will also help to develop a healthy fiscal attitude that they can carry into their futures. Subjects such as inflation, deflation and hyperinflation, business and entrepreneurship, supply and demand, unemployment, health insurance and labor unions are broken down into simple forms with easy to understand examples. A clever layout with interesting, real life photographs, fun facts and relatable picture captions make this book an overall winner for introduction to the United States "Economy In Action!" The inclusion of economic exercises, a glossary and website links to find more information about labor and management provides a good basic lesson plan for teachers and parents and enables students to pursue additional information independently.
