This is a great book for learning numbers and rhyming. It makes numbers fun for students to learn ( )

The author, Bonnie Worth, writes, "One Cent, Two Cents, Old Cent, New Cent" in a rhyme. The picture book discusses the timeline of money being created by different countries dating back to BC. The book is very informative on how money is created, what it looks like, and what it is used for in different countries which is presented through rhyming. The information is presented in a colorful, playful, and informative way for children to learn about money ( )

This book is very versatile, but I don't think I would use it in my classroom other than for a choral reading, since it has a rhyme scheme. I would use this book in 2nd-3rd grade for that. I could also use it in a history lesson because it talks about the history of money. I think kids would like this because it is a Dr. Suess book and is comical. ( )

This is a fun twist on learning about money with the Cat in the Hat. It simply introduces money and does some minor money counting. A great book for beginners with money.

I would use this book for 1-2 second grade. ( )

Genre: Informational

Style: This book is written in a rhyming format. It adds to the story by providing a fun layout while still being an educational book.

Review: This book is about the Cat in the Hat walking through the history of money with a young girl and boy. They start back in ancient times to see how money has changed over the years. This book is a good example of an informational story because it accurately portrays the history of money from past to present.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375828818, Hardcover)

THE CAT IN the Hat puts to rest any notion that money grows on trees in this super simple look at numismatics, the study of money and its history. Beginning with the ancient practice of bartering, the Cat explains various forms of money used in different cultures, from shells, feathers, leather, and jade to metal ingots to coins (including the smallest—the BB-like Indian fanam—and the largest—the 8-foot-wide, ship-sinking limestone ones from the Islands of Yap!), to the current king of currency, paper. Also included is a look at banking, from the use of temples as the first banks to the concept of gaining or paying interest, and a step-by-step guide to minting coins. A fascinating introduction is bound to change young reader’s appreciation for change!
