Booklist Review of Econo-Graphics Jr.
The Econo-Graphics Jr. series (8 new titles) introduces foundational economic concepts with an emphasis on infographics. Short, straightforward text passages begin each chapter to explain the main topic and related terms. A variety of full- and double-page infographics with crisp designs and real-world examples follow these text passages to illustrate and reinforce their concepts. Inflation describes how supply, consumer demand, and the cost of raw materials and wages all influence inflation as well as indices that measure it. ach series installment incorporates timely references to COVID-19 and how it impacted the economy (especially the toilet-paper shortage!). A culminating activity allows readers to test out the volume’s economic theories while a concluding resource list lets them seek out related books and websites. An attractive and user-friendly approach to studying economics.
