Pigs Will Be Pigs
Fun with Math and Money


by Amy Axelrod
illustrated by Sharon Nally

In this bright and bouncy concept book, the Pigs turn their house upside down looking for change to go out to dinner. Readers count along as they find cash in socks drawer, under the bed, in the closet, and a five-dollar bill from the washing machine. A final page recaps all the amounts and math needed to find the answers.

This book is not our favorite in this category, but it can be a fun supplemental story to use when teaching money to kids.
