" A comical look at students' attempts at fund raising - great economic connections! " said.

" This book helps students understand the adding and subtracting of money. I think a lesson on money word problems would be a great follow up activity for this book. " said.

" This book could be used to deal with math because it touches on money and counting. It's a community building book because it shows how a grade came together to do something fun. It even touches on economics as it discusses profit and expenses. " said.

" Unfortunately, I really do not understand the point of this book. Yes, I get that they are trying to make money for a school trip to New York City, but the ending? That would never actually happen. I definitely did not like this book at all! I would never recommend it to anyone. " said.

" A class of second graders trying to raise money for a class trip goes through one failed fundraiser after another until something extraordinary happens. The story was interesting if a bit ridiculous! " said.

" This book should accompany lesson plans to help children connect to the idea of recording profit and expenses. With this book, teachers can show students why adding and subtracting, and solving problems are important to them. This book could also accompany language arts lesson plans to enhance reading and writing, vocabulary, sequencing, organizing and synthesizing. This book will be in my classroom library for use from Pre-K - 5 grades. " said.

" Love this book. The kids in second grade has numerous plans to raise the money to visit the Statue of Liberty. But they all go slightly awry and do not net the amount of money intended. A fun way to look at profit and loss. It contains real life lessons that relate to fundraising and running a small business. The hilarity of the book makes the lessons easy to appreciate and the twist at the end gets them to NYC. " said.

"When reading this book in Social Studies class, this book was an interesting book to read. It talks about how the 2nd graders are trying to raise money and it goes through each activity that they do to raise money and how much money they make (profit) and how much money they have to pay to pay for supplies. The end of the book is not how you expect it to end, but it has a very cute and good ending to it. This is a good book for children to read and to introduce economics to students. I am definitly wanting this book on my book shelf. " said.
