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 it's 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 family's unique and effective method of teaching personal financial management-and 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 children's lives.

Three Cups is a great book for kids. It teaches them how to manage their money wisely with a simple concept.

The three cups in this book are the saving cup, the spending cup and the giving cup. The money in the saving cup will be kept in the bank once the cup is full.

The money in the spending cup is used to buy something that the kids want. Kids will learn to spend money wisely, and differentiate between what they want and what they need.

The money in the giving cup serves a noble purpose: to help people who are in need. The money will be put to good use, and kids will understand that it is important to contribute to the society, because there are always people out there who really need a helping hand.

Three Cups teaches kids to be disciplined, responsible and charitable - it also helps children to understand that having a lot of money is not the main point, but rather how to manage and spend it.

With eye-catching illustrations, an easy-to-follow narrative and a simple yet profound introduction to a better way of life, Three Cups will certainly make a lasting impression on your kids' lives.
