Author Biography

Laura Hamilton Waxman lives in Minnesota and has written many nonfiction books for young readers.

Review

"Part of the Bumba Books: A First Look at Money series (4 titles), this book addresses the tricky differentiation between needs and wants. Designed for the youngest nonfiction readers, it employs bright, colorful backgrounds, full-page photos (typically of diverse children enjoying treats or sporting necessary clothing like winter coats), a few generously spaced lines of text, and occasional question bubbles that prompt critical thinking. Its spreads clearly explain, and demonstrate via illustration, that needs are things required to live (healthy food, warm clothes, etc.), while wants are things people like but aren't required for survival--though more than one child is sure to balk at the line 'No one needs candy to live.' The final spread features an identification activity and a photo glossary. Preschool collections need this title."--Booklist
