Middle school – or 5th – 8th grade Books

The Money Maze 2nd Ed.: Don’t Get Lost in the Middle!

Do you love a good maze? I love a mirror maze at the fair or a corn maze around Halloween. You can go in, make a wrong turn, laugh, and you have to turn around and try again. Oops – another block, try again – over and over until you get from Point A to Point B. Great fun! 

But do we really want to hit all those wrong turns when we’re talking about the Money Maze? No, of course not. If there was a rope or a line on the floor, that is what we would follow. We don’t want to make wrong turns because we know it could be a very expensive mistake to go back to the beginning and try again. 

The Money Maze, Don’t Get Lost in the Middle! is your rope, your line on the floor. Grab the rope before you even start, learn now how to get from Point A to Point B. The Money Maze provides you with some basic information on how money works so you can get from cents to dollars without making all the wrong turns people usually make. With a little knowledge and a little discipline, you can navigate through the Money Maze and arrive at Point B successfully! 

See you at the End!!
