Book Review | Three Cups by Mark St. Germain

Title: Three Cups
Author: Mark St. Germain

Sadie loves to play with money and is always asking people for their wallets for “one $2” which I think means toonie. She counts the coins and puts them in her piggy bank. She has a cash register and a play credit card. So she is at the age now where we can talk to her about money and if she brings money to the store to buy a treat and picks something that is more than what she has we explain to her that she doesn’t have enough money and she needs to pick something else. (she usually asks for more money but we are working on that :)..)

I was anxious to receive the Three Cups book from Tony so I could sit down and get some real life ideas on how I could teach her to save and spend her money. Three Cups is based on a true story of a little 5 year old boy who received 3 cups for his b-day from his parents who were trying to teach him to save, spend and give to charity. It is an easy to read, cute book that teaches children a valuable lesson in many ways.
 
The books is written by Mark St. Germain and illustrated by April Willy. The pictures are very heartwarming. This is a cozy book if there is such a thing. The book retails for $10 plus tax and shipping and handling. Go to Three Cups for more info.
