Timberdoodle's review
 
This sequel to My Book of Simple Money helps children make the difficult transition between cents and dollars. By first reviewing the names and values of coins, and then slowly beginning to practice dollars and the dollar-based structure, this workbook will make a challenging mathematical concept seem easy.

Not only is money an important aspect of everyday life, but it may well be your child's first experience of why a knowledge of math is essential. Most children are eager to learn more about the mysteries of money. That enthusiasm will give you an opportunity to reinforce the basics like addition, subtraction, and even the decimal system. This book utilizes Kumon's renowned learning system, where concepts are taught on a precept-by-precept approach, which ensures that introducing your child to money will be thorough and frustration-free.

About Kumon:
Over 20 years ago, when our family began this delightful home school adventure, workbooks for toddlers and preschoolers were hard to find. But that was just as well because the ones that were available were inane, insipid or intolerable. (Why would we choose to prohibit watching corrupting television, then turn around and use workbooks with those same characters depicted in them?) Workbooks are not appropriate for all young children; many are simply not ready for the fine motor skills that are necessary. Let those children continue to learn at their God-ordained pace and in a way that encourages a love of learning. But when your children are ready to move to focused learning, reach for Kumon Workbooks. The captivating illustrations are child-friendly and the scope and sequence are just what educating parents have been looking for. Kumon centers have been helping children master fundamental skills for over 50 years. Originating in Japan, they have excelled in their primary emphasis of math and reading instruction. With the exception of a page or two of nonsense, these are outstanding books, worthy of any child's time and effort. The skills taught are essential and appropriate, and their presentation can entice even the most hesitant learner. The assignments are short; each is slightly more challenging than the last so that your child progresses at a gradual, comfortable pace.
Money may well be your child's first experience of why a knowledge of math is essential!

Kumon makes great books! October 22, 2015
Reviewer: Jim E.  
While this book ended up being a little too easy for my daughter, I really do like the way that Kumon sets up their books. They are always well illustrated and easy to use.

Dollars and Cents October 26, 2010
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
Now, this book makes sense!  This is really a great workbook to introduce the money system to your child. It introduces them to all the different coins and the dollar bill, and teaches your child how the bills and change work together.  This would be a great precursor to receiving an allowance.  As a plus, it will really hone their basic math skills in a fin enjoyable way!

My 4 and 7 year old both love the Kumon workbooks! October 31, 2008
Reviewer: Amber E. from Dubuque, Iowa  
I have two children, a 7 year old girl & a 4 year old boy.  They both love the Kumon workbooks.  I have to stop by 4 year from trying to finish an entire book in 1 evening.  He loves the cutting books best and especially loves receiving this certificate at the end.  The books for my 7 year old are very good too.  We have enjoyed the money series along with the crafts.  We enjoy going through the books together.  My 7 year old enjoys helping her younger brother complete books she has already completed.  The books also use a very nice paper and are bright and colorful.

Quite good October 30, 2008
Reviewer: Kimberly G. from Clinton Twp, MI  
I have found the Kumon series of workbooks to be useful for all of my children who have used them.  The books dealing with fine motor skills are excellent; some of the pages can be done by young children with practically no assistance (such as in the cutting, tracing, and maze books), while others need a bit of direction from a sibling or parent (such as folding and crafts).  I have mixed feelings about some of the math skills workbooks:  The money workbooks are quite good and have some variety in the pages, but I think the time books are somewhat tedious and aren't as effective.  The number workbooks have some pages that involve a lot of writing which my children found boring and tiresome, but are still useful overall.
