Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3-- Two things are going on at the same time here. One is a story of a one-dollar bill as it is passed from one person to another, eventually ending up in a picture frame as the first dollar earned by a new store; the other is factual information about dollar bills. Each double-page spread includes a blown up picture of a bill (in black and white as required by law). The book concludes with labeled pictures of a dollar bill that explain what the symbols and various numbers mean. The full-color illustrations in the story include people from a variety of ethnic backgrounds; however, the faces have a lifeless, wooden look about them. Nevertheless, Adams provides sound information to help youngsters understand the basics about our paper currency. Use it as a companion volume with lighter fare such as Dollars and Cents for Harriet (Crown, 1988) by Betsy Maestro. --Laura Culberg, Harold Washington Library Center, Chicago

I am a third grade teacher and this is a super book to use when teaching about money. It's a story about how a dollar gets passed on from person to person. At the bottom of every page there are interesting facts about the dollar bill, such as the serial number, what a dollar bill is made of, etc. Students will find this book enthralling!

Format: Hardcover
At the time of this review, this book is listed for ages 9-12 but as a picture book, I would recommend it for age 4 up to 9. The facts introduced are intriguing enough for older ages, even adults, but as a picture book, it is very hard to imagine a twelve year old actually reading it.

Children are often surprised to hear that when they deposit a dollar bill to a bank, they will never get that exact same dollar bill back. While this book does not address bank deposits, it certainly demonstrates the flow of money through society. The story is nicely woven with facts that children will find interesting, such as how long a dollar bill lasts, how many are lost in a day, and how many make a pound. Do you know what a "star" bill is? I didn't.

As a mom, I especially liked the humor of the forgotten dollar bill making it through the wash! I was also pleased to see "spending" is addressed when one character makes a list of what to buy with the dollar. We can never start too early to teach good money habits. This is an excellent book mixing money facts with fiction to hold children's interest.

I got this book for my almost 6 year old son. I have a habit of reading to him every night and was currently trying to teach him about money. It is more sophisticated than I expected and caught my son zoning off while I was reading it to him. It would be better if the "money facts " on every page were seperated better. Its an okay purchase.

We like this one for its in-depth look at the details on a dollar bill, its information on how US dollars are produced, and facts and trivia all through the book. Give your kids some dollar bills and a magnifying glass -- this book has lots of interesting information.
