Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Capstone has created a series about money in an attempt to get basic monetary information into the hands of youngsters. The series, dubbed "Learning about Money" contains several books in the company's "First Facts" set. Series subjects include books about earning and spending money and learning about the history of money. In this book, chapters such as "Going to the Bank" and "Loans" include simple and informative material. Eight chapters are presented in two-page spreads. Fun facts add a little extra to the basic large-print text. The format allows for the whole book to be read at once or specific chapters be read to support other classroom subjects. Bright, up-to-date photos have kid appeal. One intriguing photo shows a huge bank vault. Glossary words are highlighted in the text and well-explained at the book's end. An added "hands on" activity allows readers to practice some of the banking skills learned from the book. Added resources and a simple index add to the book. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 8.
—Nancy Garhan Attebury
