Reading Makes Cent$ lessons posted


JMU’s Lynne Stover continues to play a key role in the state delivery of the “Reading Makes Cent$” program sponsored by the Virginia Council on Economic Education and Virginia 529. The program includes free economics-related books for the libraries, associated instructional materials, and competitions for the students. Lessons authored by Stover and edited by the Virginia Council on Economic Education are available for each title. For the new school year, the three featured titles are:


My Rows and Piles of Coins by Tololwa M. Mollel, described as the story of a resourceful and thoughtful boy. The story is set in Tanzania in the 1960s.

Rock, Brock, and the Savings Shock by Sheila Bair, the story of two brothers who have very different attitudes about dealing with money.

Lemonade in Winter by Emily Jenkins illustrated by G. Brian Karas, a story about sibling entrepreneurship.
