To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I returned this book. My 4 year old was so disinterested after 2 seconds! I thought it was going to teach him about how to use money, save it etc, but it was just a history on money... Super boring and all American. We are Canadian so it didn't even apply to us.
Don't get me wrong, it's great. Maybe I should have read the fine print. This is not a book to teach young children about (American) money basics though. It has a lot of great information about the beginnings of currency and is for an older child. Mine children are 5 and 3, however, and though they are huge Dr. Seuss fans, it was not a good fit. Keeping it in their library for future use though! Just thought I'd write a disclaimer for parents like me!
The Cat in the Hat Learning Library books are fantastic! Each book is incredibly educational while also being fun and engaging. It’s a winning combination. I can not recommend them highly enough. We have bought nearly all of the books. Even though my younger daughter has aged past them, she insists we keep buying them and will not part with them. This is a bit of a bone of contention in my house, because my older daughter teaches and wants them in her classroom. Our compromise is that my older daughter sneaks out one book at a time on an as-needed basis - and brings it right back!

There is no need to buy them in order; I just thought you might like to know! Each is a standalone volume.
We have enjoyed many other books in this series, but this is our least favorite. It mentions many ancient forms of money - facts that might be interesting to someone who is really into coin collecting. However, it fails to teach the basic values of our current coins. It's also less entertaining than most Cat-in-the-Hat books.
