Cash Kat is about a little girl and her grandma who go help clean up a park. While Kat is cleaning she finds some money. First, a penny, then a nickel. Grandma explains a nickel is worth five pennies. Then Kat finds a dime, which is worth two nickels or ten pennies. Kat finds quarters and even a dollar bill. Kat keeps wanting to know if she has enough to buy an ice cream. When Kat is done cleaning the park, she and Grandma count her money. She finally has enough for an ice cream, but decides to donate her money to the park.
I really liked Cash Kat, but I think it is best for kids who are younger than me. My sister is five-years-old, and is learning about money. I think this book will be good for her to learn how much each coin is worth. I really liked all of the math and the counting coins. I liked the extra pages at the back of the book, which taught more about counting coins, decimal place values, and cleaning up litter. I especially liked the chart which showed how long different kinds of litter took to decompose. I did not know it takes a diaper 450 years to decompose.
