1. Personal Reaction: I think this book was really good and interesting to use in a classroom. It will be very beneficial to teach students about math and how to count money. In the end it shows exactly how much money they found and adds it up for children to see. I thought this book was a good book and I think that it would be a good book to use in a classroom.

I think that this book would be great to use when teaching 3-5 grade students about money. While keeping you focused and engaged in the books money hunt, you get so excited by the end when they were finally able to find enough so they could go to the restaurant. When teaching your students about money with this book you will also be able to incorporate addition,subtraction, multiplication and division. I bet your students would love it if you allowed them to participate in their own money/number
