This takes us through the history of money. I think it is good for students to know the history of money and where it is going snd where it came from. We learn that money came from trade when people used to trade goods. When people began to trade from others far far away we needed some other sort of payment. That is why money was invented. ( )

A decent picture book for children. ( )

With artistic replicas of the currency of antiquity, "The Story of Money" offers an interesting look at the origins of economics perfectly written for younger readers. This book is loaded with information that would prove useful in either a Social Studies lesson or as a supplement to a Math lesson teaching how to count money. ( )

This book explores in text and watercolor the development of currency from the ancient world to modern America, including barter and electronic checking. Incorporates basic theories of banking and partially explains how the stability of governments gives rise to more complicated monetary policy.
