Making Cents

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?
