In this cheerful book, a boy tells about an interest he shares with his dad: coin collecting. They look at change from the grocery store, fill a fishbowl with assorted coins, and sort them by size and face value. But along the way, the boy absorbs information about the coins in past times and civilizations, the manufacture of modern coins, and how our currency spotlights people, places, and events in American history. Throughout the book, text shares the pages with brightly colored, mixed-media artwork, captions, and speech or thought balloons. Photos of common coins appear in boxes along with a little information, and the backs of the state quarters appear on one double-page spread. The appended authors note suggests researching coins at the library and recommends a few books and a website for children. With an upbeat tone and plenty of interesting facts, this is a fine introduction to coin collecting for young children. Grades K-3. --Carolyn Phelan
