Teach your children to save: My review of Three Cups by Tony Townsley and Mark St. Germain
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Publication Date: November 8, 2011
Three different cups marked give, save, and spend start a little boy on an adventure to learning the value of money, of saving, and of giving away to others. Three Cups follows a boy and his family on a simple journey to learning profound truths that not only teach financial management but the joy found in giving as well.
Beautiful illustrations and an easy-to-read, engaging story make Three Cups a book that will greatly appeal to children. It can be difficult to make financial management interesting for children to learn about, but Townsley and Germain have managed to do just that! Children will enjoy learning about how money can be saved in their own bank account, used to buy something they've had their heart set on, or the difference giving money to others makes not only in recipient's life, but in the giver's heart as well. The section at the end for parents is quite practical regarding how to start using the 3 cup system.
Parents with young children who want guidance on how to teach their children to handle their money well, while learning the importance of giving to those in need, should plan on purchasing this book for their own family. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars and a solid recommendation.
