Cash Kat by Linda Joy Singleton, illustrated by Wald Christina [Review]

Arbordale Publishing has a knack for publishing children's books that are adorable, fun, educational, and quite entertaining.

I just love how Cash Kat has cute characters that have some quirky characteristics. As the story unfolds the bits and pieces of a variety of lessons is there for the reader to embrace. Not only is the story enjoyable in that Kat has a great experience with her Gram, but they are involved in a bit of community service. While cleaning up the park, Kat finds coins and begins to amass them hoping to eventually purchase an ice cream. 

She learns the value of each corn and as she finds them and she learns to use addition to see what her total cash is. Eventually she decides to give her accumulated treasure to help the park instead of purchasing an ice cream.

What she learns....

  • Community Service
  • Valuing her community's park
  • Learning the coin values and saving for a goal, and finally
  • Gifting her money - an act of philanthropy.
All this is done in a fashion that relates to the kids reading the book. This is a sure-fire keeper book and perfect for the youngsters in the home, school, or library patrons.

As always, I love the learning pages at the end of the book that help children further explore the values already presented in the delightful book.
