What's Spend It! About

Publisher Summary

A charming introduction to simple money concepts in which a bunny learns he can’t buy everything he wants with his allowance!

Sonny gets three whole carrots a week for his allowance and wants to buy everything with it! But he soon discovers his money won’t go that far, and his mom tells him he needs to make some choices. That doesn’t sound like much fun to Sonny, especially when he learns that the bouncy castle he’s been eyeing goes for ONE HUNDRED carrots. Ridiculous! But eventually, after a little math and a little more thinking, he has a blast discovering what’s really important to him and worth spending his carrots on.

Who Wrote Spend It!

author & illustrator
Cinders McLeod

My cartoons and stories have appeared in newspapers and magazines and on television in Britain, Canada and the States, and been recognized by the Society for News Design, The National Newspaper Awards, the National Magazine Awards and The Guinness Book of Records. I’m also a recorded singer-songwriter-double bassist, a Scottish Gaelic language student, and a mother of two.

I’ve had to be careful with money all my life because I was an art and film student, then a musician, then a cartoonist. I built my home from songs and sketches. When my children were young, I did my best to teach them about money. When I realized there were no children’s books on financial literacy, I created the Moneybunnies series. I wanted to help children understand not only basic money concepts like earning, spending, saving and giving, but also more abstract concepts, like why parents have to go to work, and having less money doesn’t make someone less “”valuable.”” EARN IT!, the first in the series is out now, SPEND IT!, spring 2019 and SAVE IT! and GIVE IT! soon after.
