Timmy and the Money Tree
About the Book
One night, Timmy has a very strange dream. He dreams he is sitting in a tree that has dollar bills for leaves! When he wakes up, he asks his grandmother if there are any such trees. Grandma explains that while dollar bills don’t grow on trees, she can take him to see the place where paper money comes from. Along with Timmy’s mom and dad, Grandma and Timmy go to visit the Bureau of Engraving and Printing for a tour. There they learn all about how money is designed, printed, and eventually brought to the banks for people to use. What a valuable lesson to learn! In this children’s story, the first in a series, a little boy and his family make a special trip to learn about how paper money is made and distributed.
