Thank you to Nancy Paulsen Books and Edelweiss+ for giving me an opportunity to read this DRC.

Actually – correction, my six year old son read this book to me! Yes, yes and YES to this book. I wish there were books like these when I was growing up. It teaches children in the cutest way possible, money concepts! A very important aspect of life that isn’t taught to us enough in our youth.

My six year old read this fairly easily and he isn’t a kid who loves to read. He loves books and being read to s

I purchased another book in this series - Spend it! - to mail to a nephew. My 15 year-old son and his friends spotted it on our kitchen counter and were drawn in by the illustrations, so I mocked a “story time” while they cleared out my kitchen cabinets. They loved this book! The conversation that ensued included sharing that four tops can be purchased at Value Village for the price of one at Garage (in the mall) and that one could buy 2,500 cans of Peace Tea during school lunch break at the loc ...more

This entire series by Cinders McLeod is genius and I wish that there had been anything even close to it when I was a kid.

The financial lessons that they teach can't be taught early enough and by using bunnies and carrots, it makes it easier for even younger kids to understand. The illustrations are wonderful and descriptive as well, in this case showing two "spreadsheets" of carrots, one showing if you spent nothing and saved everything for your big goal and the second, a compromise of saving ha

Honey wants a place where she can find some peace and quiet after watching her 5 siblings. Her dad gives her the idea to save up for a playhouse. Can Honey figure out how to save the carrots she earns for her dream, while still being able to enjoy some ice cream?

A great introduction to budgeting in terms that kids can easily understand. The illustrations are cute, and the story is enough of a story it doesn't feel like it is just about the money aspects. Highly recommended.

I love a good bunny book! Honey wants her own house to get a break from her siblings, so she decides to save for a playhouse... But does that mean she can't spend any carrots on going to the movies? Save It! is a great, simplified way of teaching money management and financial planning. Not only can we learn from it, but Honey the bunny and her whole family are completely adorable. ...more

When Honey decides she wants her very own playhouse, she faces the dilemma of how to pay for it. She earns 2 carrots per week and needs 10 carrots in total. As Honey weighs her options she does the math. She can save and spend with a little patience. A cute book to introduce simple math, perseverance and responsibility.

A great picture book for teaching young children about money and the importance of saving. This story is about a little bunny named Honey who saves her allowance every week so that she is able to save up for her own playhouse. With some patience, Honey is able to make her dream come true. Even others, like myself, can relate to Honey and her desire to buy a place of her own!

A great book for kids about the virtue of saving money. There aren't enough books for kids like this, so I really appreciate the MoneyBunny series! This will help kiddos aged 4-8 better understand saving, spending, and budgeting-- hard topics without a tool to help learn. Will be pushing these for MoneySmart week 2020! ...more

My K-2 students love this series! I can’t keep them on the shelf. These Moneybunny books are returned then borrowed again on the same day every time.

I shared with all my students your plan for the next book: Borrow It! When I told them the series would be complete, more than one student in each class suggested you missed Share It! as a fifth book title in your Moneybunny theme.

Honey dreams of his own house away from all his noisy siblings. He’s sure that his father will buy him a house, but his father explains that he can’t afford to do that. Honey must save ... for a playhouse. But it will take some planning in order to save AND still have money for some fun.

Financial literacy in very simple terms for young students.
Honey Moneybunny wants to buy her own house to have some quiet time away from her five siblings. She only makes two carrots a week for babysitting her siblings, but she must come up with a plan to save her carrots to buy her dream house. Will her plan lead to success?

I really enjoy how the 3 books in the Moneybunny series follow the same format. The story is simple, easily understood for young ones. This story teaches patience and saving for what you really want in the long term!
Note: I accessed a digital review copy of this book through Edelweiss.
One more, please!

I had such trouble teaching my children the concept and importance of saving money. This is such an important and needed resource. The illustrations were cute too!

Definitely the winner of this series so far. I liked the save/spend combo going on here.

Thanks to Penguin Young Readers for the review copy.

This was a really cute book about saving up, with a great story, so it did not feel like a lecture. The boys enjoyed it, the girls agreed it was very true.

4 stars for this sneaky financial advice book

Like its predecessors, I love the concept, but not the execution. It assumes a child is getting an allowance, which is not always the case.

A young bunny must decide between saving money for something special and spending it right away. Preschool and up.

A great book to introduce small children to saving and focusing on short and long term goals.
LOVE this version of
budgeting for children!

Simple concept pretty well done, but OH! having to take care of five siblings every day? Those bunny parents are saving a fortune on childcare costs. Maybe give Honey a raise?

This is such a great way to introduce young children to saving money. They can learn that they have to earn it, save some, and can spend some.
Fun illustrations.

Yup, that about sums it up right there! 95% of the world's money problems would vanish if we followed Honey's example in her quest for a playhouse. ...more
Honey makes a plan to save her hard-earned carrots for a future purchase. Great for teaching math, money, or savings!
