Author Ian Lucas writes:
I recently co-authored a children's illustrated book on coins and the monetary system, Treasure Hunt in the Enchanted Forest: The Search for Good Money. It discusses historical evolution of the American system, the qualities of good and bad money, Gresham's Law, and more.
There are a number of books about coins for kids out there, but few attempt to tackle the weighty subject of economics. Below are excerpts from the book's web site.
Grandpa Owl, the wisest and wealthiest resident in the Enchanted Forest, teaches his grandkids about kindness, fairness, and the secret to his riches. Follow along with Brother and Sister Owl as they learn lessons that students of top business schools do not receive. When you're done, you will be ready to go on your very own hunt for real treasure!
What others are saying:
Impossibly cute and just a tiny bit cunning, Treasure Hunt in the Enchanted Forest aims to teach kids a profound lesson about currency-one mom and dad surely will find eye-opening as well. History and economic lessons are cleverly hidden within a sweet, beautifully illustrated story crafted to enchant even the youngest readers. If you're curious about the true 'value of a dollar,' Treasure Hunt is worth its weight in gold.
