Teaching children how to save, spend, and be charitable can be as simple as 1, 2, 3.
All parents want to teach their children good money habits from an early age. Many start by giving them an allowance. But its equally important to teach children a positive, generous attitude as they learn to use money responsibly.
Filled with warm, memorable illustrations by award-winning painter, April Willy, Three Cups is the story of one familys unique and effective method of teaching personal financial managementand how one boy reaped first the small, then the immeasurably great rewards of the lessons he learned.
Families will be delighted with the heart-warming tale and want to integrate the three-cup system in their own childrens lives.
The story is told from the perspective of a boy who, on his fifth birthday, is told that he is now old enough to start receiving a weekly allowance. However, his parents (his benefactors) insist that he divide his money three ways and place it in separate coffee cups. One cups money is to give to those in need. One cup is to spend on whatever the boy desires. The last cup is for saving and investing for future needs. If he does this, his parents promise him that he'll experience great adventures.
The "adventures" do transpire in time. From his giving cup he takes enough money to buy cans of soup to give to hungry families through a food drive at his school. Through his spending cup he eventually accumulates enough cash to buy a baseball mitt he has wanted, as well as a gift for his little sister. As his savings cup fills, he transfers the money to a bank account and earns interest. At the end of the book, he has used this money to go to college and get married. He now has a five-year-old boy whom he can teach about the three cups.
The book features warm, copper-toned drawings of the narrator, his parents, his sister, and the bank president, and at the back of the book there is a guide for parents to help them teach money management to their youngsters. However, the book contains no Bible references, no examples from Scripture, and no admonitions to "render unto God what is God's." Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
