We’re in the money! Many things come with instructions. Unfortunately, money isn’t one of them. Most people learn how to use it—or lose it—by trial and error. Dollars & Sense is a basic operating instruction manual for money that will teach readers about the history of money, the way our American economy works, and how to make important decisions about personal finance. An engaging and approachable guide for kids tackling how to responsibly manage their money. Included are sidebars, time lines, diagrams, a glossary, and further resources, as well as information on related topics such as the Great Recession and sequestration.
