Overview

Money, Money, Money delves into the myths, history, and future of money through informative and amusing anecdotes. From ancient barter systems to today’s digital transactions, the story of currency is explored in age-appropriate language and through a rich array of photographs and illustrations. The basics — the history of money, banks and how they work, the stock market, how interest is calculated — are covered in a clear, simple fashion, making often difficult concepts easy for young readers to grasp. Chapters on bank robbers, the origin of slang terms such as “dough” and “moolah,” and how ATMs work educate while they entertain. The book also provides young readers with advice for making, spending, and investing their own money.
