One of the best gifts any adult can impart to a child is a sense of self-worth, and that’s the primary message in the very entertaining book by Stephenie Barker, “The Little Copper Penny” (www.BrownBooksKids.com).
When Little Copper Penny is feeling blue over being told he’s not worth much by others who discount the value of pennies, it’s Grandpa Wheat, a savvy 1922 minted senior penny, who comes his rescue by giving him a new perspective. This is a great read-together book that inspires discussions about value, money, and developing a sense of self-worth, despite the misguided opinion of others. The rhyming tale is accompanied by bold and colorful illustrations by Cynthia Meadows.
