Product description


"These books offer easy-to-read introductions to the world of economics. Addressing readers as 'you, ' Larson asks questions such as, 'Did you ever get money for your birthday?' and 'How do you decide what to do with your money?' (Do I Need It?). The everyday-life examples will demonstrate to children that they can play a vital role in the economic world. Clear, age-appropriate language explains new concepts well: 'When someone works at a paid job, he or she earns money. This money is called income.' Simple paragraphs of two to four short sentences appear in large colored fonts against bright backgrounds that change color with every page. Each title includes an activity such as making a spend-or-save list to help decide what to do with birthday money. The books' layout is interesting and fresh, and each page features a large, well-chosen photograph with a boxed caption. A caption in What Is Money, Anyway? states that 'People trade goods at swap meets, ' which may confuse readers who only know swap meets as a place to buy merchandise. Margaret Hall's 'Earning, Saving, Spending' series (Heinemann, 2008) covers similar topics of money, banks, allowance, credit cards, and checks, but is for first through third graders. Report writers will value her longer paragraphs with detailed coverage including history and global issues. Larson's books will help ease younger readers into the world of economics." --School Library Journal


"Perhaps if the people who signed for loans they really couldn't afford had more books like these, we would be in a better economic state. Each book in the series covers a different area of economics. The titles reviewed deal with budgets, the value of money, and consumers and producers. Written for primary elementary students, the books are broken into chapters that describe in simple terms an element of finance. What is a budget, a consumer, how is money made, and what is the difference between a want and a need are some of the topics explained. Each book includes a related activity, glossary, and bibliography. If you are looking for a simple series to explain the basics of our economic system, these would be a good place to start. Index.

Each volume presents a logical and accessible sequence of basic economic concepts.

Review covers these Lightning Bolt Books: Exploring Economics titles: Do I Need It? Or Do I Want It?, What Is Money Anyway?, and Who's Buying? Who's Selling?" --The Horn Book Guide
