" Young readers will learn the value of a dollar along with Bun. Cartoon illustrations include some math functions/charts. " said.

" A delightful little book with wonderful illustrations. Teaches the value of money and fosters a desire to earn for what you want. Much needed in a hand out desiring society. " said.

" If only money were carrots. Ha! This is very cute book about teaching kids to save their money if they want to do something. If you don't earn it, it doesn't mean as much. " said.

" A fun, simple introduction to the concept of earning money. " said.

" Bun is a bunny who loves to sing and wants to be rich and famous. Her mother encourages her to keep up with her chores and do a few extra to help her earn carrots (bunny currency).This title seems didactic. Not recommended for storytime. " said.

"Bun is a young rabbit who wants to grow up to be a rich and famous singer. She and her mom go back and forth discussing how she can eventually achieve her dreams - starting with the chores she can do to earn money (carrots), opportunities to practice singing, and progressing on to selling songs/albums that might not make her rich or famous, but will give her a sense of satisfaction knowing that she earned her success. Bun is cute and full of enthusiasm (and questions!) and kids will totally relate to her wanting to be rich and famous (and quick!). Some sneaky math included!" said.

" This colourful book about earning your carrots (money) and feeling good about yourself is a great way to explain to young readers the value of money and working hard. " said.

"I did not like this book.

First, and this may be unpopular, but I dislike the premise of doing regular chores for money. I was raised that you should do your chores because you are a member of the house and are responsible to contribute to the upkeep and operation of the household.

Second, I didn't like the stated goal of aiming to be a "famous singer." Having read Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything?: When Celebrity Culture and Science Clash, where they discuss how "fame" has become a goal in and of itself, as opposed to a desire to excel at something or a general enjoyment of doing a particular thing, I found it really creepy in this book for the child protagonist to be so set not on being a good singer but a famous singer.

I guess the mother sort of addresses that in saying you have to take classes, practice, get better, etc. But still, I was a little creeped out by the whole thing.
" said.
