George, a newly minted quarter on his way to the bank, is in for quite a day. He's about to be traded, spent, lost, found, donated, dropped into a vending machine

A quarter describes all the ways it's used from the time it is minted.

With her signature bright, cartoony illustrations, Loreen Leedy explores American currency from the coins' point of view. George starts his day at the . Mint, but he's soon swept away to a bank and dispensed, with a roll of his fellows, to make change at a grocery store. Again and again the quarter changes hands- dropping into a vending machine, bouncing in a purse, slipping through a hole in someone's pocket. At each transaction, the arithmetic is laid out to show how we add, subtract, and multiply money every day.

I love this book. Even the page numbers are math problems.

I loved this book! I purchased it to send to my grandsons, ages 11 and 6. Of course, I read it first! There are many good lessons in this book ---- both in the money process and the math involved. All of it is done in a very cute way. :) Thumbs up!

A clever look at money and where it might travel throughout its life. Mostly we follow a quarter as it gets minted, sent to a bank, then travels throughout a city (from a grocery store to a parking meter to a garden center) and finally back to the bank. Math is included throughout the book, and readers will be able to figure out page numbers by the amount of money shown on the bottom of the page (e.g. page 25 is a quarter). The text is minimal, though there are several thought bubbles that keep the story moving. The illustrations are clear and colorful; the artist used photographs of money, which makes it stand out. A note is included in the back that gives more information about the history of money and specifically money in the United States. A glossary is also included.

There are at least 10 books that cover this information about money -- how money circulates through the economy, and specifics about US currency. This book has interesting illustrations and a nice personality... plus the presidential portraits "talk." Not only that, but the page numbers are in coins and bills. Cool!
