THE MONEY TREE
The Money Tree explains basic financial concepts and practices in plain and easy-to-understand language that children can comprehend and use in their dayto- day lives. The clear text and playful illustrations aim to simplify financial concepts like earning, saving, interest, the difference between needs and wants, and the joy of running one’s own business.
