An alphabet book that teaches a little bit about counting money at the same time. Since numbers don't start with a lot of different letters, not many of them were about money, which was a little disconnected. But it would be just as effective for teaching the alphabet. ( )

Different letters & things that start with each letter. How to make different amounts with various coins.

This book is two books in one. When you open on side of the book it has numbers 1-99 and when you open the other end it is the alphabet. This book has bright illustrated pictures.

A concept book, no words. What makes it stand out is the way it explains with real life full size pictures how to add up pennies, nickels and dimes to get specific amounts. For that it's very good. ( )

Very colorful photographs of soft touch letters with matching object/toys. Lower and Uppercase letters are different colors. Turning the book around midway introduces the elements of money. Shiny coins are photographed next to a soft touch number in a grid fashion. Different combinations are illustrated for some numbers From 1-30, by 5;s to 50, by 10's to 99. ( )

Book description
Alphabet, counting, introduction to money/math, this book has nearly everything. Too much, in my mind. Maybe it's because I work with preschoolers, but I feel this book has too much in it, is too long, and some of the pictures far too busy. Of all of Tana Hoban's books I've looked through, and I really like a lot of her work, I feel this is the weakest. Maybe it works better with older readers.
