Read.Learn.Repeat. Reviews E is for Economics

Thank you to Read.Learn.Repeat. for this themed review of E is for Economics! Below is an excerpt.

The first step toward mastering any new subject is acquiring the associated language. But the language of finance is often absent from early childhood, and probably from most conversations with children. Authored by an Economist who noted this absence,  this book is designed to build foundational language and facilitate further education.

The New ABC

I am amazed by all of the creativity coming from the ABC genre. I’m calling it a genre, because it has become a solid category and this is my blog!!!! Here are a few of my current favorites.

The Baby Bookworm Reviews E is for Economics

Thank you to The Baby Bookworm for this thoughtful review of E is for Economics! Below is an excerpt.

Hello, friends! Our book today is E Is For Economics, written by Veronica Goodman and illustrated by Nicole Jones Sturk, a playfully financial-themed alphabet book for budding baby economists.

Little readers are introduced to various economic principles and figures, from “A is for Adam Smith” (philosopher/father of modern economics) to “Z is for Zero Sum” (a situation in which whatever is gained by one side is lost by the other). Each term is accompanied by an adorably colorful illustration, often a literal or figurative interpretation of the subject, and sometimes with a tongue-in-cheek twist of humor.

MaiStoryBook Reviews E is for Economics

Thank you to MaiStoryBook for this educational review of E is for Economics! Below is an excerpt.

As a future first grade teacher, letter recognition, phonics, and phonemics will be the cornerstone of instruction. First grade= where the reading happens! Therefore, alphabet books will be crucial to supporting students as they learn the letters and their sounds. An important part of teaching~ make lessons relevant to students lives! And what could be more relevant than the economy aka $$$. Even little ones understand the basic concepts of money~ and with this economic alphabet book, be prepared to dive further into the realms of economics. Introduce your little ones, and even *yourself* to the language of economics (there are more than a few new economic terms I learned from this book!).

First Review for E is for Economics

"My two year old thinks that E is For Economics is the best economics book he has ever read. And I enjoyed it as well. It is a great way for children to practice the alphabet and engage with some bigger economic ideas and parents might learn a thing or two as well. Economists of any age would particularly benefit from trying to capture even a fraction of Veronica Goodman’s ability to convey ideas in a concise, humorous and colorful manner.”

- Jason Furman, Professor of the Practice of Economic Policy at Harvard Kennedy School, Senior Fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, and former Chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers
