Une reine verte, un castor argent#65533;, un premier ministre violet... les Canadiens ont tout cela dans leurs poches, et bien plus encore! Les enfants peuvent apprendre beaucoup sur un pays rien qu'en observant sa monnaie. Les pi#65533;ces canadiennes illustrent les animaux qui vivent ici, comme le huard, l'ours polaire et le caribou. Ils d#65533;couvriront aussi les personnages marquants de notre histoire. Par exemple, sur nos billets de banque, on retrouve des premiers ministres canadiens ainsi que la reine Elizabeth II. Le livre montre aux enfants comment ils peuvent utiliser leur argent : l'#65533;pargner, chez eux ou #65533; la banque; le d#65533;penser en achetant diff#65533;rentes choses ou l'offrir pour aider les autres. Ils peuvent aussi entreprendre une collection de leurs pi#65533;ces ou de leurs billets pr#65533;f#65533;r#65533;s. Quoi qu'il en soit, aucun autre pays n'a une monnaie comparable #65533; celle du Canada!
