Books Make Cent$: The Magic Money Tree

To celebrate Financial Literacy Month, the Southeastern Credit Union Foundation (SECUF) is excited to offer the new and improved Books Make Cent$ program. This initiative is an interactive way to introduce students to credit unions and basic financial concepts while building relationships with schools and community partners. The Books Make Cent$ program provides book recommendations and associated lesson plans for preschool, elementary, and middle school levels.

This week’s featured book is “The Magic Money Tree” which helps 9 to 11-year-old students learn about cash flow, quick money-cons, business development, and compound interest. “The Magic Money Tree” will teach you how to not get scammed and offers great advice about the magic of compound interest.

In addition to providing these financial-related books, we also include lesson plans to pair with each book, making this an optimal student engagement opportunity.

These free materials are available for download here.
