Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 04/01/2013 K-Gr 2—These books are meant to teach children about earning, saving, spending, and sharing money. Each one has three chapters and emphasizes the difference between needs versus wants. The texts are written in a bland conversational tone with little to engage children, e.g., "When someone is ready to buy things, there are many ways to shop." Fictional characters are introduced to illustrate concepts. For example, in Saving, "Olivia decided to save money for one more month. Then she bought new snow sleds for herself and her brother." The stock photographs, although pleasant, do not enhance the texts. Except for the opening chapter spreads, the layout typically consists of a photo per page with a paragraph of text underneath. - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
