Brief Review (in under 50 words): This story introduces financial literacy. Some adults might be concerned about some issues like whether eating candy is healthy, the idea of money growing magically, etc. In fact, these present good teachable points to discuss such important matters as well. This book is relatively wordy and the pictures are attractive.
