We liked to see the pictures of all kinds of different coins in this book. We could find lots of state quarters but we like the Texas and Arkansas ones best! This book helps the reader count coins and learn about trading coins for the same value. The math questions in this book helped us practice and learn about money but they were not very much fun to do. The most surprising thing about this story is that it is really a long poem. The words that sounded alike made the book easier to read.
This book was written for second and third graders. Older students will already know how to trade coins so they won't learn very much. But younger kids can learn how to keep their money when they read this book. Parents will want kids to know how to count money so they can grow up and live ok.
