What You’ll Love About This Book: This book is a good to read together as it will spark conversations about money, chores and costs of things. I thought this book would be a great way to introduce money and how saving money is important. It talks about that saving money is a good thing. The trip to the bank is probably out-of-date now (wish they could update it to show critter checking his balance on-line!). I thought it was pretty cool that Little Critter got to save up his money to open a bank account then had to work to save up more money to get the item he wanted. Those familiar with Mayer’s other books will find this one just as charming and the lesson about earning and saving for something that you want is a good one. . We love trying to find the mouse and spider that seems to follow the main character around, they’re always doing silly things. Fun engaging themes that any child can relate to, a great addition to any children’s library.
