About the Book:

Penny's, worthless? Non-cents!

Hot off the minting press, Penny feels like a million bucks. But as other coins and bills are spent while she sits forgotten, she begins to doubt her value. She is too small to slot-surf with Quarter. Even penny candy sells for a dime! Refusing to be short-changed, she sets out to find her purpose at any cost.

Readers will laugh at the wealth of money puns, learn a basic lesson on US currency, and discover that self-worth is truly priceless.

Praise:

"Combining a dash of math with buckets of good humor, this book is certainly money in the bank.” -Kirkus Reviews

 

"[...] This tribute to what is, the author notes, still our country’s most minted coin offers a perfect opportunity to discuss the difference between mere purchasing power and real value."

-Booklist

"Highly appropriate for mathematics lessons, this tale will make children chuckle while teaching them about coins and dollar bills [...] A lighthearted introduction to the monetary and sentimental value of American currency, with a subtext on the hidden value of less measurable sums.” -SLJ
