Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Jessie would love to have her face painted at the school fair but it cost 50 cents. All she has in her pocket are three dimes, one nickel, and four pennies, only 39 cents in total. Fran, the face-painter, tells her to wait and see what extra change people will put in her penny pot. As the afternoon wears on, Jessie watches the coins in the penny pot accumulate until there is just enough to make up the remaining 11 cents. Each time Fran has a customer, the coins that are paid are shown in the illustration in life size so the reader can count along with the characters in the book. This math story has a light tone, fun illustrations, and the fair setting will entice young mathematicians to solve the coin problem. This is a level 3 book in the "MathStart" series.
