If we didn't have money, how many loaves of bread would a baker need to trade for a house? What would a dancer trade for a car? Money Madness talks all about money. What it is, how we use it, and why so many people want it. The history of trade is covered from the self-sufficient hunter/gatherers through the barter system and up to our modern day system of bills and coins.

Atticus the storyteller is on a quest. As he travels, he tells stories of monsters, horrible beasts, gods, goddesses, heroes and heroines. The eight myths in the book are told at a primary level, with colorful illustrations. It would be a wonderful introduction to students beginning their studies of Greek myths.

The date is July 16, 1969. Responding to President John F. Kennedy's challenge to put a man on the moon before the decade is out, NASA has been preparing for this day. Three astronauts, Armstrong, Collins and Aldrin, have been preparing, too. Each step is rousingly described as the three men strap into the tiny space module, through Armstrong's 'giant leap,' to splash-down and the men's safe return to their families. This story of the United States' first flight to the moon is poetically told.
