“Young Honey Moneybunny is in need of a sanctuary from her rambunctious little siblings. . . . McLeod introduces a smart alternative to straight saving: saving a portion of each week's take so that Honey can enjoy some treats from her allowance yet continue to save at the same time, albeit at a slower rate. It is about as painless an introduction to division as one could hope for. To top it off, the story also introduces the act of patience. . . . Honey is such a charmer, and she goes about her task with such good-natured earnestness—and the language of the book is so consolingly you-can-do-it—that you can't help but cheer for her. . . . A well-tempered experiment in having your (carrot) cake and eating it too, with a moderate test of forbearance.”—Kirkus Reviews
“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
