Synopsis

Money-- you know all about it. Or do you? Is credit always a good idea? How risky are various investments? Do you know where stones that are twelve feet across and weigh more than 500 pounds are used as money? How do banks keep track of everyone's money? In this comprehensive guide, renowned financial expert Neale S. Godfrey reveals everything you need to know about money, including how to earn it, save it, spend it, and share it. In an engaging text, filled with energetic illustrations, photographs, charts, and diagrams, she provides a history of money, as well as a look at currency throughout the world. She also explains such topics as credit, checks, and electronic banking-- and relates them all to a young reader's world. From a piggy bank to the Federal Reserve Bank, Neale S. Godfrey makes you think about money in a whole new way.
