Money actually grows on trees in this cute title. In the story, a farmer discovers a tree on his property that grows different kinds of money, depending on which animal fertilizer is used (of course, your kids will love that little tidbit.)
The premise is kind of silly but the story is well written and Adam Doyle's illustrations are bright and charming.
is great for teaching children about money, particularly the
relative value of different types of money. And don't worry---kids
won't walk away thinking money does actually grow on trees. :)
