long with four little bunnies, your child will learn about money in this picture book that features reusable stickers of coins. Acorn, Basil, Clover and Daisy want to purchase a new hat for their mother's birthday present. They see exactly what they want at the Honey Bear Boutique, but the bunnies aren't sure they have enough money to buy it.
he clerk in the store suggests that the bunnies empty out their pockets and count their change to see if they have the necessary dollar. Combining the pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters, they have enough.
' they all shout as the clerk places the hat in a nice box for their mother.
t the end of this little book is a fold out page showing the shelves of the Honey Bear Boutique with various goods on them. Each item is accompanied by a price tag and the young reader will be challenged to figure which combination of coins will purchase each thing.
ince this book does pose a choking hazard, it should not be given to a child who is still inclined to place objects in his or her mouth. Also, if you don't want the stickers appearing in places that they don't belong (like on the furniture or toys), make sure your youngster is supervised when this book is read.
