    Looking at the preview was enough to keep me away from this book. Younger kids will be confused by how they describe goods and services. Goods are things you can touch, but services are activities that are done for you–like cutting your hair or walking a dog. Their example of a service was selling cookies, but a cookie is a good. Looking for a better book that has clearer use of vocab.

    Younger students enter school with an experience-based knowledge of economics and the ability to learn a range of basic principles. Early introduction of key economics principles provides an important set of tools that form the building blocks of economic and financial literacy. This idea underlies the increased availability of interesting children’s books to help younger learners gain a basic understanding of the economic and financial world around them.

    The Lightning Bolt Books – Exploring Economics series makes a solid contribution to this growing literature with its lively photographs, clear and simple text directed to younger students, practice exercises, and helpful reference materials. The series cover a range of fundamental concepts in economics that students are often expected to learn in the early years. The books have some overlap in the concepts they define, albeit with differing levels of detail, making them informative as stand-alone books yet mutually reinforcing.

    The series currently has six books. This book – What Can You Do With Money? – explores how people earn money and then make choices about how much to save and spend.
