Managing Money By Linda Crotta Brennan
Managing Money is one of the books in an easy economic series published by The Child's World. Other titles in the series include Banking, Bartering, The History of Money, Managing Money, Payment Methods, The Stock Market, Supply and Demand, and Taxes.
Managing Money is an ideal read for students 2nd to 5th grade. The glossary and index provided are ideal supportive tools for students to use throughout the book. Overall, the book teaches concepts such as money management related to budgeting, saving, spending, and giving.
I specifically like the many "learning tasks and tips" that are sprinkled throughout the book that apply to real world skills. They make for great home assignments in a classroom setting or excellent child/parent "to do" points when reading at home.
This series would be a wonderful up-to date (copyright 2013) addition to a school or public library.
