This workbook includes 150 visual problems with a combination of pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, dollar bills, five dollar bills, ten dollar bills, and twenty dollar bills. The problems have pictures of play money drawn by artist Bearlyn. The coins have similar relative sizes as real US coins, but have pictures of bears instead of US presidents. The pictures appear in black and white. The coins do not appear in actual size, but the relative size is approximate: Quarters look larger than nickels, nickels larger than pennies, and pennies slightly larger than dimes; and pennies appear in a different shade since they come in a different color. The actual sizes of the coins vary from picture to picture, but in any picture the relative sizes of the coins are approximately correct. Each coin clearly has the word 'penny,' 'nickel,' 'dime,' or 'quarter' written on it to help distinguish among them. Kids add up the money shown in each problem. The answers are tabulated in the back of the book, and appear on pictures of piggy banks and cash registers. The problems start out with just coins. $1 bills are introduced next, then $5, $10, and finally $20 toward the end of the book.
