This book explores the history of money, the complexities of economics, and the world of business. The overwhelming level of detail becomes manageable through the use of color and groupings in the page layouts. Show Me the Money would be a great book to place on classroom library shelves so interested, sophisticated readers could explore at their own pace. It is a useful resource for financial literacy education.

Genre: Informational
Grade level: 4-8

This was really good, probably aimed at 10 year olds. It is a great potted history of money and how business works - I would have enjoyed it more if there was advice on how to save and make money and how to make wise financial decisions. The books shows making money as all to easy and doesn't point out the pitfalls as much as it perhaps could.

Pages are a bit busy. It would have been better to stick to fewer graphic motifs throughout the book. Half the time I can't tell whether to read vertically on one page or both pages. The simplified explanations of concepts are generally good.

An excellent book for teaching children about how money works. My 5-year-old wouldn't let me read anything else to her as a bedtime story for over a month. We've now moved on to another in the series: Mathmagicians.

Lots of graphics and illustrations to help explain making "cents" out of economics.

This one wasn't that much help either with teaching economics. Hmmmm... I'm seeing a pattern here.
