PreS-Gr 1—Carrots are money in Bunnyland. Bun, a young rabbit, earns carrots for helping her mother with household responsibilities and wants to become rich and famous by singing. But Bun's mother reminds her that bunnies don't get rich and famous overnight. It takes time and money, and the more you work at it, the better you will do. And after all that work, you will have earned your success, which is even better than being rich or famous. The cheery pencil and ink illustrations depict characters with large eyes and bursts of activity. Bun's obsession with being rich and famous is a bit unsettling, but her mother's gentle message about working hard is sound.
VERDICT A sweetly simplistic introduction to financial literacy and taking personal responsibility for one's success that should find a welcome home in most collections.
