Alexander Who Used To
Be Rich Last Sunday


by Judith Viorst
illustrated by Ray Cruz

When Alexander gets a dollar, he feels positively rich! Unfortunately, the money is 'burning a hole in his pocket' and soon all he has left are bus tokens. How did that happen? This title is decades old (we remember reading it as kids!) but it still works.

Kids can relate to Alexander's situation and will get the message that saving takes discipline. Plus it provides a little practice in subtracting money.
