Truly, "Three Cups" is a unique book. It's a much needed book for young children. With a world that teaches children to spend their money impulsively, for themselves mostly, the message within this book will convey a Biblical perspective on managing money.
The book begins with a little boy expecting a wonderful gift for his birthday, only to unwrap a present that consists of three cups. The parents explain that the three cups will bring take him on great adventures. As the parents work with their son to help him see how dividing up his money can be used in many ways . . . the adventures begin. The messages on giving, saving, and spending are brief, but communicate the messages clearly and effectively. The illustrations were nicely done. This book is written for any child under the age of 8 years old, in my opinion.
I think this is a great book for young children because there are FEW books available that even discuss these Biblical principles. However, obviously the principles must be followed by the parents or guardians reading the book to the child, otherwise the child will disregard the message. Children learn mostly by watching their parents, therefore if the parent is not giving, saving, and spending . . . the message is worthless to the child.
*I was provided this book for free in exchange for my unbiased review through the Thomas Nelson BookSneeze Program.
