“An engaging picture book on basic financial literacy that specifically focuses on developing good habits, such as management, working hard, and responsible spending. . . . Also demonstrates some basic addition, subtraction, and multiplication, which educators and caregivers can build upon. With the charming cartoon designs, personable handwritten text, and relatable narrative keeping their attention, many children will find it easier to absorb this fundamental topic. An engaging addition for early grade classes learning the most basic aspects of financial literacy and responsibility. By far, one of the most age-appropriate books on this topic.”—School Library Journal
