What's better than spending the day with Dad doing something you both love? Like coin collecting! In this follow-up to the bestselling The Button Box, a young boy discovers the joys of being a numismatist. He finds out about the value of coins, what people used before coins, and why historical images and people appear on coins. Margarette S. Reid and True Kelley present a colorful and exuberant look at one of America's favorite hobbies. Educators and parents will appreciate how Lots and Lots of Coins introduces math, language arts, and social studies concepts.

Reid’s introduction to U.S. coins and coin collecting is comfy and encouraging though somewhat short on the history of our national coins, despite its talk of “a coin is a piece of history you can hold in your hand.” The book’s strongest suit is introducing coin collecting as a family activity.
