The book is about how the dollar and the importance of money came to be. The book teaches students about trade and bartering. Originally people traded rocks and berry's as things instead of money. To be more efficient they made coins and then the dollar.
This book does a really good job at making learning about money fun for the kids.
This book connects to economics because it explains money in a fun way for the children. This book is a text-to-world connection because it connects with things like rocks, berries, and animals that came before the coins and dollar.
