A Moneybunny Book: Earn It!
A Moneybunny book, published by Nancy Paulsen Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House LLC, New York. Writer/Illustrator: Cinders McLeod
Bun wants to be RICH and FAMOUS! Will that happen overnight? No! Does she have to ... earn it? Yes!
It's never too early to teach your little bunny some simple facts about money!
Bun loves to sing– and knows she's going to be a star.
When her mom reminds her that most good things, like the garden they are growing, take time and work, Bun is at first disappointed.
But as she does the math and daydreams about her future singing career, Bun starts to like the idea of earning her way to stardom– a path that comes with its own satisfaction.
“An engaging picture book on basic financial literacy that specifically focuses on developing good habits, such as management, working hard, and responsible spending. . . . Also demonstrates some basic addition, subtraction, and multiplication, which educators and caregivers can build upon. With the charming cartoon designs, personable handwritten text, and relatable narrative keeping their attention, many children will find it easier to absorb this fundamental topic. An engaging addition for early grade classes learning the most basic aspects of financial literacy and responsibility. By far, one of the most age-appropriate books on this topic.”—School Library Journal
