This book is an informational text but also has a fictional story occurring at the same time. Each page has a dollar bill with facts about dollars/money on it while the other illustrations go along with the fictional text.
Although I found this information to be somewhat boring, this would be a great informational text for a child who is interested in money. I probably would not use this book as a read aloud in a classroom but would have it available either for guided reading or independent rea

This book tells about how a dollar goes from place to place and person to person. I could use this book to introduce money and talk about the different types of money. I would also incorporate writing into this lesson by maybe having the students write a story about what would happen if they were a dollar and the places they would go. Maybe they could even make it a circular text and have the dollar end up in the same place it started off at.

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This book offers an interesting look at our currency - how it's made, how it's spent, and how a dollar bill can be transferred throughout a number of transactions. The narrative is short and the illustrations are colorful. I would recommend this book for elementary school-age children. We enjoyed reading this book together.

Ok for an educational picture book, but not super fun or super pretty. Good for teaching kids a little about money, but not much else. I'd rather read dr. Seuss with a kid. Not this.
