    This story is a fun informative way of telling students about where our money comes from. What was interesting is this breaks it down all the way to understanding how the U.S. Mint works. This is a great book to use for teaching younger ages about the concept and history of money.

    This is a good book for older children as it goes into some detail about money. Would be great to use for teachers in a money unit.

    I enjoyed this book because I like money. I also enjoyed this book because this book had a lot of money in it.

    Students will get excited to learn about money with this book by Dr. Seuss. Teachers could hand out real money and an object with a price label (up to one dollar) to each student. Students will have the opportunity to buy things from one another and provide the equivalent coins to make a purchase. This activity would be appropriate for students in first grade.

    5/10/14. This was a fun short little read. Good for a social studies add on to starting the concept of math and money in our schoolwork. It covers the paper money but only the penny, no nickels, dimes, or quarters and I felt that was very strange as that's what I wanted us to read about and experience most. Hmm oh well. 5/10/14.

    Very informative book for kids and adults alike about currency, current and past. I'm sure anyone reading this book will learn something new about how the coin has evolved over the years. Could even be used by young students to do a book report about the topic. Very informative book for kids and adults alike about currency, current and past.

    One Cent, Two Cents, Old Cent, New Cent is a good book to teach children about money. I enjoy books that are a part of the Cat In The Hat books series. Not only will the reader enjoy a walk through the featured money museum, this is great for the Dr. Seuss Read Across America activity.

    Bonnie Worth's book described the units of money and the differences around the world through a creative and silly manner. The cat in the hat and his things traveled and discovered the importance of money.

    This is a great, fun book to use when talking about money. The book gives a brief history of other cultures and money and there are plenty of rhyming words.

    This was a great teaching tool. I would recommend it as a fun, kid-friendly resource for home and/or school settings. I secured a copy of this book from my local library.

    Just an FYI, it is more about the history of money than about modern money.
