Save It!

Save It! by Cinders McLeod

“A charming introduction to simple money concepts in which a little bunny learns about the power and satisfaction that come with saving money. Honey earns two carrots a week for taking care of her siblings. Her FIVE siblings who are so loud and bouncy, she wishes she had a place of her own to escape to for some peace and quiet. So what’s a bunny to do? Get creative and figure out a savings plan–even if it means forgoing a treat or two. But saving is worth it because, with a little patience and perseverance, Honey will be able to make her dream of having her owns space come true! This is the third book in the internationally acclaimed Moneybunnies Series–following Spend It! and Earn It!”

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 half and how long it would take you to get to your big goal with either option.

I’m an adult and hate money. I can’t put my finger on exactly what causes my complicated issues with it, but I know this and two carrots a week for allowance would have helped immensely because I know that not getting a regular allowance created a feast or famine attitude, but that’s me and I’m a weird duck with tons of hangups.
