Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3-Simple rhymes and large, clear photographs instruct children in coin denominations, grouping, and counting. The text begins with an introduction to pennies and soon adds nickels and dimes, quarters, and half dollars to show how larger denominations take form. Coins are arranged in sets with visual equations illustrating their mathematical equivalents. By the book's end, children are asked to think of the many ways a dollar is made (100 pennies, 4 quarters, etc.). Both teachers and parents will find this book valuable as an introductory lesson on money.

From Booklist

Ages 4-8. Counting coins in rhymes makes this introductory concept book fun as well as instructive. A former elementary school teacher, Williams identifies and counts coinage and presents equivalent values with jingles that encourage youngsters to chime in and add up the answers. Uncluttered photographs display how 5 pennies add up to a nickel, and how five groups of 5 pennies can be traded for a quarter. Counted by 10s, 100 pennies add up to a dollar, as do 20 nickels, 10 dimes, etc. Concluding with a picture of coins being dropped into a piggy bank, with some set aside to be spent, this valuable teaching tool can easily lead into lessons on what these coins can buy.

My daughter is in Kindergarten and is working on addition and subtraction in her class. I bought this book as a supplement because she loves money, especially since our family instituted a $.25 bad word "game." In my opinion this book does a good job of tieing the different money types together, i.e. 5 pennies can be 1 nickel. What it doesn't do, and this may just be my preference, is to force the reader to identify amounts outside of .25, .50, and 1.00 denominations (with varying degrees of course.)

My daughter enjoyed this book and although she has outgrown it, holds into it "as a resource." It is a good visual for learning about money-Great for when your child wants to learn more about money, but may still stick actual money in his/her mouth!

Two of our children adopted from China and Russia were having a hard time learning how to count money, and were not understanding the concepts. This coin book is big, easy to handle, colorful and was very helpful to them. I would recommend it.

I used this book as a read aloud for my second grade coin lesson in math. I enjoy "double-dipping" when I do lessons, if I can add different areas of study into other content areas, I do! This was one of those times. This book was PERFECT and FUN to use to introduce coin value. The children loved this book. We read it together, as an intro to the lesson with coin value: greater than, equal to, less than : ) It was a lot of fun and it got the children excited for the math lesson!

I was awaiting service in my bank when I first saw this book. It was intended to amuse children while their parents did business with the banking officer. I wrote down the title and author to keep for future reference. My granddaughter is in kindergarten and I was confident that this book would help her to learn much about counting and handling her own spending money. I also got her a piggie bank and put $1 worth of coins of each denomination and a dollar bill in the bank. She seemed really happy with her gift. In time I will learn whether the gift accomplished the goal of enhancing her math comprehension. I rather think that it will.

I purchased this book for a young adult (21 years old) who was new to the US. She was looking for a job and was very insecure about making change. This was an excellent resource. She could refer to the book and be reminded of the values of each coin and how they make a dollar. It was perfect!!!!

I bought this book for my 5 year old as both a reader and to learn the values of money. So far, the book has been good for both. I recommend it.

This book has been very helpful in teaching my child how to count money. I like the fact that it rhymes and show you different coins can total the same value. This book has been very helpful now that my child is receiving allowance I like that this book could be used as a reference for my child to make sure she's counting correctly. The "Coin Counting Book" can be passed on to other family members it's definitely a great learning tool!
