"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."


"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
