"Viewers learn about money and making change in this educational and entertaining program hosted by two animated characters. Penny is a singing and dancing coin, while Bill, a paper dollar, plays the guitar. Together they perform songs that introduce coin values from pennies to silver dollars. They show how to count coins and different combinations that add up to one dollar. The duo then move on to teach youngsters about paper money and discuss the different values of dollar bills from one to one hundred. Throughout the video, interesting facts are introduced and the disco lights and psychedelic video backgrounds will entice elementary students."—School Library Journal from Cynthia Grabke, Halifax Elementary School, MA
