Updated with new illustrations showing new-issue currency, new information, and several new features, this popular title for older boys and girls tells the story of money.
How and where is it printed?
What do all those long numbers and special letters on currency mean?
How are the newly designed bills improvements over the old ones?
How can banks afford to pay interest?
Here too are questions and answers that have special meaning for kids. For example, how can boys and girls find savings programs designed especially for them? How can they establish their own bank account, write checks, and use an ATM card? How can kids learn about stocks and even start to invest their own money? The author offers ideas on how kids can earn, save, budget, and invest money of their own. She also presents puzzles and games that focus on the theme of money. The book's fascinating text is supplemented with two-color diagrams and illustrations on nearly every page. (Ages 8 and older)
