2nd Edition
Hollis Page Harman - All books by this author

Updated with new illustrations showing new-issue currency, new information, and several new features, this popular title for older boys and girls tells the story of money.
  • How and where is it printed?
  • What do all those long numbers and special letters on currency mean?
  • How are the newly designed bills improvements over the old ones?
  • How can banks afford to pay interest?
Here too are questions and answers that have special meaning for kids. For example, how can boys and girls find savings programs designed especially for them? How can they establish their own bank account, write checks, and use an ATM card? How can kids learn about stocks—and even start to invest their own money? The author offers ideas on how kids can earn, save, budget, and invest money of their own. She also presents puzzles and games that focus on the theme of money. The book’s fascinating text is supplemented with two-color diagrams and illustrations on nearly every page. (Ages 8 and older)

From the reviews:
“Gr 4-7-In this updated edition of her 1999 title, Harman once again presents a comprehensive guide. Part one introduces different types of U.S. currency including the symbols, material, and history of paper and coins. The author explains the complicated path that money takes from the mint to banks to the consumer. Part two focuses on how to obtain a social security number and the purpose in having one and suggests how to earn money. Part three introduces the concept of how to make it grow and suggests ways to invest in stocks and bonds. Clear, easy-to-follow exercises are provided for each chapter, e.g., dividing an allowance into three jars- "Now," "Short Term," and "Long Term." "Money Games" adds an element of fun and provides activities to be shared with an adult. A solid addition for recreational reading and for reports.”
