"Three Cups" Book Review and Giveaway


How did you teach your young children about money?  

Jacek, our oldest, just turned 4.  While we have a savings account for him and two "piggy" banks in his room we have not yet sat him down to teach him about money. 

Have you thought about what you'll say when you have the talk?  

Have you thought about how you want to teach your young children about money?

My husband and I plan to set up allowances for our two sons.  Before doing that though we need to have an idea of what we want to instill in our sons, when it comes to money.  My husband and I come from different "ideas" on money, how much to save, spend, donate, etc. so we'll definitely need to create a united front before we begin to teach our sons.

I was selected and graciously accepted the opportunity to review the book:

Three Cups is based on a true story and it removes all the complications related to teaching the value of money.  
What's left, is simple. 

With it's focus on teaching children the value of money starting at a very young age the book is easy to read, fun to look at and simple to understand.  The lessons that are taken away are so positive.  It teaches the ease of saving, the value in spending, and the generosity of giving.  
It makes all three sound an adventure.

It does all this in exactly 21 pages.

When Jacek turns 5 we will begin giving him an allowance.  We will also read him this book and follow it's simple idea. 

Teaching children about the value of money is so important, especially now with the hard economic times we're all facing. 

I was lucky enough to receive a copy from 3cupsbook for myself for the purpose of this review.

I also have TWO copies to GIVE AWAY!
