KIRKUS REVIEW

This addition to the Household History series (see Alphin, above) reveals all sorts of fascinating things about money: how it’s made, how it came into existence, how long each denomination stays in circulation, how much money there is, how counterfeiters are thwarted, whose portrait was on the $10,000 bill, and more. The full-color photographs and illustrations of coins and the process of making money add interest to Young’s story of money. A section entitled “Money Magic” outlines “some fun things to do with money,” from tricks to finding the names of ten states on a five-dollar bill. Readers are sure to agree that “money talks.” (glossary, index) (Nonfiction. 8-11)
