This book is great! It's really cool how it's basically just math lessons in a story format. As children are reading the story, there are plenty of illustrations and words to go along with the stories for the students to read. It's basically like they're teaching themselves as they read the story!

This math book goes through really explaining money through adding and subtracting. It has different characters where they are going through different experiences where they are using money. You could use this in your classroom by creating a math workshop where all the stations are based on this book. You could set up the stations where they are having to deal with money during a certain event, where they have to solve who bought what, how much money they received and what they sold.

I really like how the book has colorful and engaging pictures that incorporate great vocabulary words like:subtract, less, regroup, minus, and equals. I would use this in a 1st grade class to show math is used in everyday life and introduction to subtraction.
