One of our earliest introductions to saving money is through the classic piggy bank. Saving money is a life skill that is good to hone and practice at any age, especially during our youth. This book shares the secrets of earning and saving money. It explores savings accounts and investing, and includes fact boxes and activities to continue the learning experience long after the book is returned to the shelf.

Series Review: Money and BanksThese titles will supplement economic units. Information is presented briefly and clearly, with enough facts to provide a framework of understanding. Saving discusses piggy banks, opening a savings account, and stocks. Spending explains goods and services, circulation of cash, credit cards, and budgeting. Bank has chapters on deposits, bank safety, and loans. The books are illustrated with clear color photographs. A Math Connection page is well done and includes a related activity. Similar in scope and quality to the Invest Kids series (Rosen), these books will fit well into elementary collections.School Library Journal
