Kumon My Book of Money Dollars & Cents
About Kumon: Over 20 years ago, when our family began this delightful home school adventure, workbooks for toddlers and preschoolers were hard to find. But that was just as well because the ones that were available were inane, insipid or intolerable. (Why would we choose to prohibit watching corrupting television, then turn around and use workbooks with those same characters depicted in them?) Workbooks are not appropriate for all young children; many are simply not ready for the fine motor skills that are necessary. Let those children continue to learn at their God-ordained pace and in a way that encourages a love of learning. But when your children are ready to move to focused learning, reach for Kumon Workbooks. The captivating illustrations are child-friendly and the scope and sequence are just what educating parents have been looking for. Kumon centers have been helping children master fundamental skills for over 50 years. Originating in Japan, they have excelled in their primary emphasis of math and reading instruction. With the exception of a page or two of nonsense, these are outstanding books, worthy of any child's time and effort. The skills taught are essential and appropriate, and their presentation can entice even the most hesitant learner. The assignments are short; each is slightly more challenging than the last so that your child progresses at a gradual, comfortable pace.

We enjoyed this money workbook. It’s pretty easy. Def good for k-1st. It’s another successful Kumon book!
I bought this for a seven year old and she did excellent! It wasn't her favourite thing to do as first since it was all new, but she got the hang of it. The pages are colored, the directions are easy to follow. I would recommend this.
While this book ended up being a little too easy for my daughter, I really do like the way that Kumon sets up their books. They are always well illustrated and easy to use.
Now, this book makes sense! This is really a great workbook to introduce the money system to your child. It introduces them to all the different coins and the dollar bill, and teaches your child how the bills and change work together. This would be a great precursor to receiving an allowance. As a plus, it will really hone their basic math skills in a fin enjoyable way!
I have two children, a 7 year old girl & a 4 year old boy. They both love the Kumon workbooks. I have to stop by 4 year from trying to finish an entire book in 1 evening. He loves the cutting books best and especially loves receiving this certificate at the end. The books for my 7 year old are very good too. We have enjoyed the money series along with the crafts. We enjoy going through the books together. My 7 year old enjoys helping her younger brother complete books she has already completed. The books also use a very nice paper and are bright and colorful.
