Michael and Hannah and the Magical Money Tree is a children’s book by Anthony C. Delauney. Michael and Hannah are excited about the spring fair and a trip with some neighborhood friends to see the money tree. When they arrive, they see the tree leaves have been replaced with folded dollar bills, and they can’t wait to spend the cash on the items at the fair. There are rules, and if the children aren’t satisfied with the outcome before the last toy is purchased, they are told they may earn their own money by performing a list of chores. Michael notices there aren’t enough items for everyone, and he comes up with a solution he hopes will make his classmates happy.
Anthony C. Delauney has written a lovely children’s book with a beautiful meter! His story teaches a lesson about sharing, hard work, empathy, and friendship. Chiari Civati’s vivid illustrations burst from the page and will surely capture a child’s eye. The story's focus is the lesson learned from hard work, and it is seen in the resolution as the children work together for everyone’s benefit. Educators and librarians may use the book to start a learning path, and they can feel comfortable with the text as Delauney is a financial advisor. Michael and Hannah and the Magical Money Tree is a great book for children old enough to understand chores and their relationship to allowance or money.
