School Librarian's Workshop
For Math Awareness month, check out three series that guide students on the path to financial literacy. In Lisa Bullard’s Gabriel Gets a Great Deal (Ill. by Mike Moran, Millbrook Press, 2013, 24 p. 978-14677-0766-4), Gabriel needs new sneakers, but the ones he wants cost too much. Online sources, sales, and coupon ads don’t have both price and item. A thrift store solves the problem. Interior math problems and glossary are some extras included. Five other new titles are in this Cloverleaf Books™ Money Basics series. (Gr. K-2)
