1.Personal reaction- I loved this book! So much was going on throughout the story, all-relating to the topic of money. It provided information about budgeting, making money, the need for money, and many more topics relating to money. I loved how it made up situations through narratives in which students would need to work out to solve the money topic being explained.

2. Purpose-
This would be a great book to read during a math unit on money. This book would be great to use especially when discuss

Read it when I was in grade 6 as part of the Silver Birch reading program. As someone who is now 20, I recommend everyone read this or a book like this. It describes the basics of how money came to be, banks and how they work, the stock market, etc.
