Toothpaste Millionaire by Jean Merrill is a book that I can’t say enough good things about!  I have read this book aloud since I discovered it several years ago as part of our class study of economics.  It’s a great way to build background knowledge. It was originally published in 1972 and reprinted with the new cover you see in 2006.    It is truly a timeless book. When I read it aloud to the students, there are very few clues that let the reader know it took place over 30 years ago.  The author must have been very progressive and I’m so curious what type of reveiws it got when it first came out.
