LOTS AND LOTS OF COINS by Margarette S. Reid
CHILDREN'S
Released: March 1, 2011

"Fortunately, Reid devotes a whole page to the Fugio cent—Ben Franklin's penny—which is such a piece of whimsical delight, it might have kept the whole notion of money in some sensible perspective, if it had been left in circulation. (Picture book. 6-8)"
Reid's introduction to U.S. coins and coin collecting is comfy and encouraging though somewhat short on the history of our national coins, despite its talk of "a coin is a piece of history you can hold in your hand." Read full book review >
