1 Money Bunnies Take a Vacation Money Management I N T E R N A T I O N A L

2 Everybody calls the three bunnies the Money Bunnies because they re smart about planning, saving and spending their money. This is the story of how the three bunnies got their nickname.

3 Brownie and his family are going on vacation! He, his sister, Bonnie, and his brother, Buddy, have been saving up all year so they will have money to spend at the Hippity Hop Amusement Park, the biggest and most exciting theme park in the whole world!

4 Brownie, Buddy, and Bonnie do extra chores to earn money. Of course some chores, like taking out the trash and setting the table, are just done as part of the family housework. Brownie does all kinds of other jobs, but his favorite is gardening. He knows that when the vegetable garden is weeded and tidy, the carrots will grow big and juicy.

5 Brownie knows how important it is to save money. He knows that saving money means putting some aside until he has enough to buy what he wants. So every week Brownie puts half of what he earns into his piggy bank and only spends a little. Buddy helps the neighbors rake their yard and clean their house. Bonnie walks a neighbor s dog. Every week they put a little money in their piggy banks too, but not as much as Brownie. Buddy and Bonnie like to spend money on things they want right away. Buddy spends a lot of his money on toys and Bonnie buys lots of pretty hair ribbons.

6 On the night before the Bunny family leaves for the Hippity Hop Amusement Park, Brownie counts all the money he has saved and puts it in his wallet. He packs his wallet safely into his backpack for the trip. He is so excited he doesn t think he ll be able to sleep at all tonight!

7 Finally the big day arrives! It s vacation time! The family piles into the car and heads off to the Hippity Hop Amusement Park. Mother asks the bunnies what they d like to do at the park. All the bunnies close their eyes and imagine their trip. There will be a roller coaster and bumper cars, a giant Ferris wheel, and the fun house. The souvenirs and toys at the amusement park are the best ones anywhere. What a great vacation this will be!

8 I want to go on the Ferris wheel so I can look down at the whole amusement park. And I want to buy some souvenirs! says Buddy.

9 I want to ride the merry-go-round and buy some balloons! says Bonnie.

10 Brownie wants to go on every single one of the rides. He doesn t care about souvenirs. He shouts, I want to go on the roller coaster 100 times! And the fun house and the bumper cars.

11 The Bunny family drives for a very long time. When they arrive at the Hippity Hop Amusement Park, Brownie is the first one in line at the ticket gate. His brother, sister, and parents are right behind him.

12 While Brownie looks at a map, deciding which ride he wants to go on first, Buddy and Father head straight to the Ferris wheel. Buddy loves being up so high that you can see the entire park and some of the town below.

13 Bonnie rides the merry-go-round and goes to the fun house with Brownie and Mother. Later, she and Buddy buy drinks and ice cream cones.

14 At night, Brownie and his family talk about how much fun they ve had. I loved the Ferris wheel most of all! says Buddy, And I want to buy some souvenirs. Bonnie agrees, Tomorrow we ll have to do some shopping! I m going to go on every ride again! says Brownie. Okay, children, say Mother and Father. It s time for bed. You need plenty of sleep so you can get up early again tomorrow.

15 The next morning, Brownie is the first one awake and the first one in line again. His family is close behind, ready for another fun day!

16 Buddy runs to the ticket booth, ready to ride the Ferris wheel again. But when he opens his wallet, he sees that he has only enough money for either one ride or a souvenir. Buddy spent more money earlier in the year than Brownie, so now he has less to spend at the park. He has to decide which one he wants more a ride or a souvenir. But he wants both!

17 Bonnie is next in line, ready to ride the roller coaster. But when she looks in her purse, she also has only enough money for either another ride or a souvenir.

18 Bonnie and Buddy ask their dad which choice they should make. Should they go on another ride or buy a souvenir? It is such a hard decision! Dad asks, which choice would make you happier? Buddy and Bonnie think about it. I really want to go on another ride, says Buddy, but I want to have a souvenir too! I want to remember all the fun we had, says Bonnie. Even though I want to ride the roller coaster, I can show a souvenir to all my friends. My choice is to buy a souvenir.

19 Buddy agrees. So Father takes Buddy and Bonnie to the souvenir booths to buy some special toys to remind them of their vacation. Mother stays with Brownie while he goes on lots of rides.

20 Brownie goes on the bumper cars again while his mother sits close by enjoying the sunshine.

21 At noon, just before it is time to go home, Mother and Father treat all the bunnies to a ride on the monorail.

22 On the ride home that afternoon, Brownie, Bonnie and Buddy talk about all the fun they had during the day. Mother and Father tell the bunnies how proud they are that they had saved their money for vacation, planned how to spend it and were happy with their choices. They are all good savers and smart spenders!

23 When Brownie, Buddy and Bonnie got home, they told their friends how much fun they had at the Hippity Hop Amusement Park. They told them about the rides and showed them their souvenirs. The bunnies were glad they had saved their money all year long. Right away they began thinking about next year and started saving for the next vacation.

24 Mother and Father exclaimed, I think we have three smart Money Bunnies! And that is why everyone calls Brownie, Buddy and Bonnie the Money Bunnies.
