"There's a short course in American history in your wallet, and Parker brings it to life by explaining what's on the front and back of U.S. paper currency, from $1 to $100,000. Parker provides original art on almost every page, along with a tiny photo reproduction of the currency under discussion. Interesting facts about familiar individuals (Washington, Lincoln) as well as lesser-known ones (Salmon P. Chase, Woodrow Wilson) abound, and costumes, culture [including counterfeiters], and architecture all become Parker's subjects...This is an expansive review that will be great for history classes as well as useful in math and art."'BL.
