Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A red, yellow, blue, white, and green all-day sucker on the cover draws attention to this book in the "Learning about Money" series. This cover and accompanying photos demonstrate a concept that is very real in the world of kids. Pages contain large print and few sentences while clearly getting the idea across. The vocabulary is controlled and evenly paced. The appeal is geared toward grades K-3 and the reading level is set for grades 1-2. Some topics include prices, demand, and choices. After reading this, students will understand how pricing works and how it is controlled by the supply of products available. Glossary words in the text are set in bold. A hands-on page demonstrates how a group of children can play a game that will help them understand supply and demand. An "Amazing but True" page gives them the scoop about diamonds. Short fact boxes are scattered throughout. This book complements math and social studies programs. Accelerated Reader quizzes are available for all books in the series. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 8.
