" I think this has been my favorite book in the Kit series so far. The Penny Pinching party and The Waste Not Want Not Almanac were great story lines. Aunt Millie was a fun addition to the cast of characters at the Kittridge home. These books have a nice moral message that is not too overbearing. " said.

" Really loving Kit and especially her amazing Aunt. Both of their positive attitudes make me want to start trying to be just as thrifty. Which given the world we live in would probably be very beneficial to the entire family. Very inspiring book! " said.

" My daughter has been reading these Kit books and is slowly turning into Kit herself! I wanted to make sure that was she was reading was ok and loved some of the ideas I got from reading it! Even a parent can learn something! I hope my daughter starts a newsletter soon - and a Penny pinching book! -kg " said.

" Kit's Aunt Millie comes to help her family. Aunt Millie is full of ideas on how to reuse things to make money stretch farther, including a dress she sews for Kit from feed sack fabric. Kit also brings home her new dog and gets a "Penny-Pincher" birthday party. A lot of things were funny in this book, but there were some good lessons too. " said.

" Aunt Milly has lots of good ideas to make do, use up, or do without in order to save scarce dollars during the depression--so many that Kit is embarassed in front of her schoolmates. This book reminds me of how I grew up AFTER the depression. My grandmother made us pajamas out of feed sacks, and my Uncle raised chickens. An easy read, but good supplement to school lessons on the Depression. " said.

" Aunt Millie arrives in this book with her waste-not, want-not attitude. It's kind of funny to see how Aunt Millie has as much in common with the frugal housewife as she does with the Pinterest social climber. Maybe the frugal housewife doesn't need things to be "just so" like the latter, but in order to do either one, you do need to be able to spend a huge amount of time on presentation. " said.

" I'm reading these books to decide how age-appropriate they are for my daughter. This one in particular is a strong story - Kit's ambivalence toward her aunt's thriftiness - fascination with the methods, but embarrassment with sharing them with others, came across as very real for the age group. And the historical details included in the back of this book are very interesting. " said.

" Kit's Aunt Millie comes to visit - and along with her are a few more "new arrivals"! She brings a whole bunch of money-saving ideas with her, and Kit finds them great fun, until she becomes embarrassed by her aunt making those ideas rather public. But she soon finds that it's a good thing to share with her friends, and is even fun! " said.
