"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.

"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.
