 ~ Review ~ 

A truly great book for both kids and parents. If you have problems explaining to your kid why you can't buy this toy for him/her. Though I do not have kids, and my parents were very strict with money I do believe this is a good book for kids to learn how to spend and gain their money. 

It's true money doesn't grow on trees, but kids sometimes think it does, and this book with it's colourful design, easy language and straight to the point attitude it best for kids! If you don't have this book on your kid's shelf you're loosing a lot. well, at least the time and patience to explain everything! Enjoy and have fun with your kids!
