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.
