Kids Making Money: An Introduction to Financial Literacy (Start Smart: Money) by Mattie Reynolds
I love this series for children grades PK-3rd. Wonderful photos that draw children in via a vicarious experience. Plus, a glossary, an index, and website suggestions are located at the back of the book to add more learning experiences.
Not only does this book provide a look into earning money for young children, it also explores how adults have different careers and how we all need to earn money to buy goods and services we need as well as those we want.
I would recommend that teachers purchase this series for their classroom library (or school library), and first use them as read aloud books with learning activities to follow. Then it would be ideal to add them to the independent reading time for students to reread and have 1:1 time with the text.
For parents, check out one book a week from the library and find extension activities that your child would enjoy.
