Grade 1-3-At the school fair, the art teacher is painting faces for 50 cents each. Jessie would like to participate, but she just bought an ice-cream cone and has only 39 cents left. Fortunately, there is a penny pot where children put their extra change, so Jessie sits down to wait. As the youngsters approach the booth, their money is counted out and their extra pennies are added to the pot. When Jessie adds up the change and finds that there is 51 cents, she can finally get her face painted to look like a cat. The counting of money becomes a real experience in this appealing story; life-size, authentic-looking coins are used in the brightly colored illustrations, which also show multiethnic children having a good time. Money-related activities are appended. Teachers will welcome this addition to math-curriculum materials.
