Making Cents, by Elizabeth Keeler Robinson, is a fun way to introduce children to money. The characters in the book are trying to build a clubhouse. Each coin/bill is introduced with a description, illustration, and example of what that amount can buy. The progression of the story helps readers understand each successive coin/bill. Children can have fun reading this story while also learning more about money.
*Can you tell me what a dime (penny, nickel, quarter) looks like?
*If you had this money, what would you buy?
*Which picture is your favorite?
