Gr 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.-Ilene Abramson, Los Angeles Public Library

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.

It is a fun read with a good pace for my 6 year old son who is learning to count coins and money. I read and demonstrate the coins and counting from the book. It is a good supplement and reinforcement for counting coins and money lessons.
