Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2016 Spring)
The four titles in this series aimed at building financial literacy are written in clear, simple, direct prose. Readers are encouraged to work hard for their own money, avoid impulse purchases, keep money in the bank where it can earn interest, and save for the future. The posed photos contribute little, but the overall layout is accessible. Reading list, websites. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Money Smarts titles: Bank Wisely, Earn Wisely, Save Wisely, and Spend Wisely.]

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2015 November)

Gr 1–3—The books in this photo-illustrated series encourage elementary-age students to think wisely about money matters. Simple, declarative statements provide the bulk of the content yet manage to only fill about half the space on each page, leaving a great deal of white space; vivid multicolored borders and chapter endings presented in a bright, Seussian font pop against the white background and provide visual appeal. Sandwiched by boldly hued horizontal blocks, the full-page captioned photos are striking, and the diverse cast of subjects are authentic, allowing readers to see themselves running a lemonade stand or counting money. Simple Q&As interspersed throughout inspire critical thinking, as do built-in math problems that are solved in the narrative. VERDICT Solid additions that make financial literacy accessible for young readers.
