Book Overview

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 B-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

   Not our favorite
He has learned a ton from her and in the traditional fashion of Dr Seuss is the cadence of the story captivating. The subject of this book could have been great, teaching children about coin values, money etc. Instead, it discusses the history of currency and trading... a great topic, but not just for this age group. By the time he is ready to discuss the history of the currencies, etc., he will probably not connect with the cat in the Hat as much.

   Not The Best
It mentions many old forms of money facts that might be interesting to someone who is really into coin collecting. However, it fails to teach the current values of our basic coins. It is also less fun than most cat-in-the-hat books.

   False stereotypes for children
This is great if you want to perpetuate falsehoods in a rhyming format to your children about money. Simply stated that money arrived because people used to barter and they needed a medium of exchange to do so is a myth. In Debt The First 5000 Years by anthropologist David Graeber, he clearly establishes that debt precedes money and that there is not a shred of historical evidence that farmer is not interested enough in farmer b's wares to trade with him. Stick with a real Suess book and if you want to teach children about money, first learn about it, as very few have any scientific understanding.

   What a great teaching tool for children of all ages!
Highly recommended to read with your own children or discuss with them as a teaching aid in schools. Aimee Elizabeth, author of Poverty Sucks! How to become a self-made millionaire :

   Not like other Dr. Suess books - Not Good
I love many of Dr Suess books. One fish in particular, two fish in the wild. This book does not even come close to one of these books. It feels like it is trying too hard, it does not rhyme in any places, it belabors parts of history that feel out of place in the overall story flow of the book. Cannot recommend it at all, when there are so many better options.

   Awesome Product!
You would think that a book by Dr Seuss would be fictitious. But this teaches the history of money in the style of Dr Seuss. I teach a moderate and mild special education self-contained class and I think that all teachers should purchase this book!

   Saving
If you love Dr Seuss stories, this is the perfect way to save the little ones. I added a piggy bank gift.

   Cute Book
I have a group of students who are both into money and Dr Seuss's books. This book goes through a history of money in a fun and silly way. There is a lot of rhyming and silliness involved. While this book may not actually teach money and how to add it, this book is definitely worth adding to any curriculum on money.

   Cat in the HAT never disappoints.
When I added the Book, I bought a Piggy bank for my grandson. We have fun with the coins in the book and then put them in the bank.

   NOT THE BOOK TO BUY TO TEACH ABOUT MONEY
Don 't get me wrong, it's great. I should have read the fine print maybe. This is not a book to teach young children about money basics, though. However, mine children are 5 and 3 and though they are huge fans of Dr Seuss, it is not a good fit. Keeping it though in their library for future use!
