Enslow Publishers' six-book "I Like Money Math" series has the right stuff for older siblings, and adults need to teach and learn these fundamental concepts. Author Rebecca Wingard-Nelson's Guided Reading Level "K" text and clear examples provide an effective blend of language and content. Supporting illustrations lend each 24-page book essential, real-world visual context to the identification of coins and bills, as well as reinforcement of basic mathematical functions. One title in the series foucses on word problems, an area of particular significance for test preparation.
