it was amazing
bookshelves: math, humorous

This is one of my favorite children's books... young students love Alexander's humor that Viorist does a great job portraying throughout her stories. Alexander has a problem in this book--he used to be "rich" last Sunday, but now he's not. The story follows Alexander's journey losing his dollar througout the story, losing 15 cents here and there by making bets and spending money at yard sales. Children can learn how to count change through the use of this book. This is an excellent literature-math connecting book! I highly recommend it to any primary classroom.
