From piggy banks to saving accounts, there are countless places to save money. This book teaches young readers how a bank operates.

Series Review: Money and Banks
"These titles will supplement economic units. Information is presented briefly and clearly, with enough facts to provide a framework of understanding. Saving discusses piggy banks, opening a savings account, and stocks. Spending explains goods and services, circulation of cash, credit cards, and budgeting. Bank has chapters on deposits, bank safety, and loans. The books are illustrated with clear color photographs. A “Math Connection” page is well done and includes a related activity. Similar in scope and quality to the “Invest Kids” series (Rosen), these books will fit well into elementary collections."
