Editorial Reviews

Review

"A great choice for read-alouds, this will also make an excellent introduction to primary units on money."

Booklist

"The contemporary, lively watercolor illustrations emphasize the outlandish situations."

School Library Journal

From the Inside Flap

The class tries to earn money for a field trip. Susan Olson, second-grade treasurer and reporter, here dutifully records the comical details that surround this adventurous tale under the headings, "Expenses" and "Profit."

I liked the idea of this book when I read the description, but it's really A LOT to be in one little children's book! It's hard to follow and keep up, and there's just too much involved. I bought it for a lesson on money, most of the children were disinterested pretty quickly. A little disappointed.

Format: Hardcover
Newton Barnaby School's second graders have embarked on a fund-raising drive to finance a field trip to the Statue of Liberty. These perky kids have no shortage of energy or ideas for collaborative projects that can generate cash. A collection of all types of paper to sell to the recycling man, a lemonade stand, candy sales, and a car wash: each involves expenses, earnings, and a profit. So exactly how would these seemingly small-scale enterprises generate more than eight thousand dollars? Therein lies the fun in this clever book that wraps a valuable economics lesson into an entertaining story for young readers who are taking their first steps on the path toward financial literacy.
