THE CAT IN the Hat puts to rest any notion that money grows on trees in this super simple look at numismatics, the study of money and its history. Beginning with the ancient practice of bartering, the Cat explains various forms of money used in different cultures, from shells, feathers, leather, and jade to metal ingots to coins (including the smallest—the BB-like Indian fanam—and the largest—the 8-foot-wide, ship-sinking limestone ones from the Islands of Yap!), to the current king of currency, paper. Also included is a look at banking, from the use of temples as the first banks to the concept of gaining or paying interest, and a step-by-step guide to minting coins. A fascinating introduction is bound to change young reader’s appreciation for change!
Bonnie Worth is the author of countless books for young readers. She lives in Middletown, New York.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome kids book! Though it does feature American coins and bills, there is still plenty to love in this delightful children's introduction to the history of money. In the style of Dr. Seuss, the Cat in the Hat explains lots of interesting facts about money, e.g. how coins are made, what a numismatist is, how pennies changed during wartime, what bartering is, where the first coins were made (Lydia), other ancient cultures that produced coins, where banks trace their roots from, etc. And all of this in 48 pages of fun-to-read rhyme! A good addition to our Cat in the Hat Learning Library collection. #plumreview
