The Value of Saving series is one that I absolutely loved and remember as a child. I highly recommend them for any parent who wants to give their kids a little something more to chew on. I remember this one like it was yesterday, with all the illustrations, etc.

My six-year-old is devouring this series, and I too am loving it! Each book highlights a value personified by a notable person in history like Harriet Tubman, Jackie Robinson, John Chapman (Johnny Appleseed), etc.

My husband remembers reading them as a kid too.
J'ai aimé le livre parce qu'il a construit un foyer en bois...Il a inventé des lunettes à doubles foyer.Il a aussi fait la premiere rue éclairée, service de police, et le premier hopital aux états unis.
I read this all by myself, even though I am 5. I learned that saving is very good for the earth and people. Ben invented things with his best friend, Benny the Penny.
What an awesome man! I loved reading this to my kids, they learned so much.
So cute! I recommend getting this series for your kids.
