Ms. Yingling Reads blog - Karen Yingling

"This short (45 pages) book is an overview of money through history and throughout the world. It starts with trade and bartering, goes through the introduction of coins and banknotes, and continues on with a discussion of different currencies and money systems used today. Strengths: Interesting nonfiction, and it has an Accelerated Reader test. Weaknesses: Not what I needed. I was hoping that there would be more on certain areas, but there are barely two pages on all of ancient Rome and Greece. The inclusion of "Solve It!" sidebars was a bit odd. – Karen Yingling Ms. Yingling Reads blog 1/14/2013" - Ms. Yingling Reads blog

School Library Journal Curriculum Connection - Vicki Reutter

"The "Understanding Money" (Heinemann, 2011; Gr 3-6) series is comprised of six titles that help explain personal finances and the impact of world economies on society. Gail Fay's Economies Around the World charts the advantages and disadvantages of free market, command, and socialist economies, while Patrick Catel's Money and Trade addresses resource scarcity and modern-day pirating. Fay's Using Money and Nick Hunter's Earning Money discuss debt, credit, wages and incorporate "solve it!" math problems. Lori McManus's Money Through History and Catel's Money and Government round out this visually striking series that delivers such extras as biographical profiles, flow charts, timelines, and colorful images.- Vicki Reutter (School Library Journal Curriculum Connection) 12/06/2011" - School Library Journal Curriculum Connection

Omaha Public Schools - Linda Scholz

"Money Through History is an unusual book on money. It covers the history of money and what kind of money is in different countries. The book doesn’t really talk much about money in the United States. For someone that likes to learn about the origin of objects this might be of interest to them. Words in bold print, like surplus and barter, could be helpful in studying economics. It is current and talks about paying online, credit cards and how the country of Greece had their money problems in 2010. –Linda Scholz, Chandler View Omaha Public Schools 1/27/2013" - Omaha Public Schools
