Detailed Book Description

In Explore Money! With 25 Great Projects, money is more than something to earn, save, and spend. It's an opportunity to explore history, art, science, economics, and math! While checking out the change in their pockets and bills from their banks, young readers search for hidden treasures, learn how money can multiply, and see how countries keep their currency secure. Very large and very small numbers take on a new relevance when seen through the lens of money.

Using familiar materials found in the home or classroom, young readers explore the cultural aspect of money as well as its physical properties, discovering how these properties have affected business and global relationships throughout history. Kids experiment with various substances to clean coins, scientifically test coin components, design their own currency, and plan how to allocate their own money. Understanding the whats, whys, and hows of currency helps children achieve financial literacy and establish a strong foundation for a healthy, life-long relationship with money.
