Money Math: Addition and Subtraction

We rated this book:


Money Math: Addition and Subtraction is a picture book that is beneficial for children from kindergarten through third grade. The book starts out with the name and picture of the coins followed by their worth compared to a dollar. It cleverly introduces fractions to show how the value of the coins compares to the value of the dollar.

Although the book provides information about money, it also serves as a type of workbook by asking children to add up the value of coins displayed on the page. It even demonstrates how to write monetary amounts with dollar and cent signs and the decimal point.

It doesn’t only serve as an introduction to money, but it delves into higher level concepts such as looking at different combinations of coins to make the same amount. For example, there are 50 ways to make 50¢ (the pages in the back illustrate all 50 combinations).

There are also addition and subtraction problems in relation to purchasing objects and making change.
This book would make an excellent classroom resource, but it’s also a fun book to have at home. It makes the concept of money understandable and logical for kids. Highly recommended.
