Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 1-3
Banks shows how people keep their money safe; Credit Cards explains that people have the option of buying now and paying later; and Money explores the development of coins and paper currency and looks at the ways people earn wages and are paid. Illustrated with sharp, clear photographs, each spread presents a different concept in a logical procession. The author uses simple sentences, highlighting important words that are defined in the glossaries. Even when the same concept, such as the difference in wants and needs, is addressed in two books, the explanation and pictures are different. A chart showing where money goes follows a five-dollar bill as it travels from person to person and place to place. Photographs of checks, deposit and withdrawal slips, and bank statements show how adults keep track of their finances. These well-designed, contemporary volumes are right on the money for young readers.
