Your Piggy Bank: A Guide to Spending & Saving for Kids! – School Library Journal
Salzmann successfully deposits practical math into the hands of young consumers with a winning combination of fun graphics, sassy dialogue, and easily understood information. Charts and nuggets of text in bold colors explain how to organize money to count it more efficiently; to buy based on value; and how to add savings and subtract costs to determine the amount accumulating in a pudgy piggy bank. The books conclude with further advice on spending wisely. Covering a range of concepts from the basics of addition and subtraction to the life skill of financial prudence, these volumes are worthy additions.
