School Library Journal/Series Made Simple - Stephanie Farnlacher

"This solid series is aimed at helping readers understand money. Going back to 10,000 BCE, History is an interesting look at how coin and paper money came to be. Economies delivers an unbiased comparison of some of the major world economies, while Using Money should be read by all middle schoolers who might need guidance about spending their allowances. Government and Trade are likewise well written and at an appropriate level for the intended age group. The clear language and meaningful examples help kids understand how to make money, save money, and budget. Earning is also informative, but it has a couple of confusing diagrams. Photographs, diagrams, and sidebars are plentiful; some are more enhancing than others. Overall, a useful series.

School Library Journal Curriculum Connection - Vicki Reutter

"The "Understanding Money" (Heinemann, 2011; Gr 3-6) series is comprised of six titles that help explain personal finances and the impact of world economies on society. Gail Fay's Economies Around the World charts the advantages and disadvantages of free market, command, and socialist economies, while Patrick Catel's Money and Trade addresses resource scarcity and modern-day pirating. Fay's Using Money and Nick Hunter's Earning Money discuss debt, credit, wages and incorporate "solve it!" math problems. Lori McManus's Money Through History and Catel's Money and Government round out this visually striking series that delivers such extras as biographical profiles, flow charts, timelines, and colorful images.- Vicki Reutter (School Library Journal Curriculum Connection) 12/06/2011" - School Library Journal Curriculum Connection

Library Media Connection - Beth Green

"Using current events to illustrate points in regards to economics around the world, this series is a basic starting point for students. Each volume poses a question to begin each "chapter," and ensures a well-thought-out answer by the end, using photographs, artwork, historical political cartoons, and graphs, which are all captioned. Each title also includes "Solve It!" questions, which require both mathematical and critical thinking analyses. Answers are provided. Money through History includes a timeline for the use of money throughout time. Especially noteworthy is the section in Using Money on online banking and identity theft. The series is an extremely informative set of books that will entertain while informing students about economics. Bibliography. Glossary. Websites. Index. Beth Green, School Library Media Specialist.
