Teaching Preschoolers About Money


Learning to recognize different coins and understanding their value is an essential part of the preschool and the kindergarten curriculum.

Parents can use coins to introduce math concepts like sorting and counting. You can help your child learn to identify coins and their value while teaching them to save money using Coin County: A Bank in a Book, an award-winning book by Innovative Kids.

Children can save over $20 by filling the slots in the book with pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. Coin County: A Bank in a Book shows how many pennies equal a nickel, how many nickels equal a dime, how to count to 25 cents and the many ways coins add up to dollars.

Reading Coin County: A Bank in a Book with your child is a  fun way to teach the value of coins and the concept of saving money.
