“Having taught several children’s financial literacy programs, The Little Copper Penny is a great way to learn about the value of coins, but more importantly that everyone has value. I am looking forward to reading it to my six grandchildren.”
—DENNIS FITZGERALD, Banking Center Manager, Comerica Bank

“I love this book! It's such an uplifting story that teaches both money-counting and self-worth. Wow! What a great way to teach little ones the differing values of coins. The artwork brings the money to life, the story flows at a brisk pace, and reading it just makes me feel happy. I'm a retired educator now, but I would have relished reading this to my students and having it in my classroom library. My younger elementary students would have read this little book over and over.”
—SHERYL DOUGHERTY, Retired Elementary/Middle School Teacher and Grandmother
