Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday
Anthony has two dollars and three quarters and one dime and seven nickels and eighteen pennies. Nicholas has one dollar and two quarters and five dimes and five nickels and thirteen pennies.
Alexander has...bus tokens.
And even when he's rich, pretty soon all he has is bus tokens.
He was rich. Last Sunday.
Grandma Betty and Grandpa Louie came and gave Anthony and Nicholas and Alexander each a dollar. Alexander was saving his. Maybe for a walkie-talkie.
And then there was bubble gum, some bets with Anthony and Nicholas (that Alexander lost), a snake rental, a garage sale, and all kinds of other things to spend money on.
And now all he has is bus tokens. When he used to be rich last Sunday.

I think this would be a great book to read to your students when you are about to start talking about money. this book shows how using your money can make it go away very fast. This book shows that children should save their money if they really want something. Read full review

The message shows that children should spend wisely and save for valuable things. The book could be used for a mathematical lesson by counting down a dollar how it is spent as Alexander did. Read full review
