Gordon, Sherri Mabry. Be Smart About Money: Money Management and Budgeting. (Be Smart about Money and Financial Literacy series). Enslow Publishers, 2014. ISBN 9780766042926. 48 pgs. grades 5-12. P7/Q8
I think there is a need for books about money as many parents are not teaching these skills to their children and they often only receive a half semester their senior year in an Economics class which doesn’t help them to build good habits. This book has a contents page with subjects from making money, investing, and budgeting basics. The pages are filled with information, do the math sections, word boxes, and a few icons to break up the text. There is a glossary, learn more section with books and internet addresses, do the math answer key, and an index. I think this would be a good book for math teachers trying to show applied math skills.
