Description
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!From the Hardcover edition.

We're about to have fun learning all about money! Where does it come from? Can you answer that, please? I will give you a hint: It does not grow on trees! Just one penny each it will cost you to see the Museum of Money. Step up and pay me! People bartered to buy things in ancient times. They did not have pennies, or nickels, or dimes. This meant that a beekeeper might want to sway his store of honey for a farmer's wheat crop. If the farmer liked honey, a deal could be struck. If the farmer liked jam, it was the keeper's bad luck. People would fight over deals that they made. Was this a good swap? Did I make a fair trade?, The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library : There is a big gap between "concept" books written for preschoolers and nonfiction that requires fluent reading skills.
