Sometimes money conversations are just too abstract for young learners. These lively and colorful books relate money matters in a way your elementary/middle-schoolers will understand. The text is broken into small bits using language that makes sense. At the same time, kids will learn loads of new vocabulary words. I love the structure of building up from a personal to a global framework. Color photos and illustrations, including charts & graphs, show the reader what is important. Kids are never too young to learn how to handle money, and this is a great age for teaching concrete concepts and expanding out into the world around them. Each book has an index, glossary, discussion questions, and additional resources to explore. Perfect for a classroom, library, or a unit study on money and economics. 7.5"x 9.5", 64 pgs each, pb. ~Sara
