5.0 out of 5 starsAdorable & Educational
Reviewed in the United States on February 18, 2014
There were many things about "The Power Of The Penny" that I liked, but what I loved about it was the enthusiastic way it tried to spark a love of history, social and personal responsibility, and an eye for understand our nation. The book is wonderfully written with a bouncy tone and a wealth of vibrantly engaging illustrations that bring this story to life, sparking imagination and education in children who read it. My son really got a kick out of learning about the penny through Abe Lincoln's effervescent words and I ended up learning a bit with him along the way. The book is a great choice for parents who want to educate their kids while entertaining them; it provides a well-rounded outlook on everything from the penny's history to the way it can be used to change your life and your world. It provided to be a smart reading choice for my son and I would definitely recommend it for parents and kids looking to learn and have a little fun as well.

The messages and concepts in this book are a great foundation, based around character building and the symbol of the penny which children can hold onto for a lifetime. It encourages self exploration and reviewing civic history, a deeply important message and palatable for children. Recommended!
Book was great condition I bought it used but the storie was lame I was looking for a history book about Abraham Lincoln, for kids, this is a book is not that, it is to do what he did and be all and anything you want to be, feel good book,. Just not what I was looking for
5.0 out of 5 starsHome run of a book by an extraordinary talent

I know Elaina personally and professionally, and I really have to hand it to her for this one. The Power of the Penny is a great book for children to learn about the value of saving while also learning about what it means to be an American. There is no better book to introduce children to saving and the power that they hold in their own hands. A child learns that he or she can be trusted with a penny; soon, he or she learns what it means to be trusted with a dollar. And thereafter, you have a group of children who understand the value and meaning of trust, and they can grow into trustworthy people who deserve to handle hundreds, thousands, and larger amounts of money. What a talent, and what a book. That's why I want to produce a book series with Elaina called The Power of the Penny Presents Profiles in Character. A series inspired by Elaina's book that is about people who actually demonstrate that they know the value of saving, the value of being a good person, and the value of setting a good example. Congratulations, Elaina. The fact that she is also a warm, genuine, creative person makes her professional achievements even better.

THE POWER OF THE PENNY by Elaina Redmond is an amazing Children's Book. Very educational and informative with beautiful illustrations. A very good book. "Written by a 8 year old". I might add. What a wonderful book! Not only for its educational and informative thoughts but also as a tool to help teach young children the meaning of a penny. What our forefathers gave to each American,this country and the faith,"In God We Trust". I would highly recommend this book to grandparents,school educators and children of all ages and anyone who enjoys reading educational tools. A must read! A definite keeper. I would also recommend "The Power of The Penny" to every school across across our grand country and to be available at your local library. Received for an honest review from the publisher/publicist.
