If You Made a Million
by David Schwartz
illustrated by Steven Kellogg


This clever sequel to How Much Is a Million teaches money in a funny, accessible way, bringing confusing financial concepts down to a level that children will understand. Topics include saving and spending, writing checks, interest, the relationship between accomplishing tasks and getting paid, and more. Steven Kellogg's bright, 'magical' illustrations add to the success of this book.

If you are teaching money, this is a great resource, but a lot of ground is covered in the book, and the audience seems to increase with the page number.  Be sure to pre-read to see if some sections of the book should be skipped over.
