Children's Book Spotlight: Three Cups

Monday, November 21, 2011

"Teaching children how to save, spend and be charitable
with money is as easy as one, two, three."

About the Book:


"As new parents, my wife and I wanted to find a way to teach our children about money, so we agreed on using a weekly allowance to accomplish this. We thought it equally important to teach our children good values as related to money (saving, spending and charity) to help them develop positive habits early on that would last them the rest of their lives. This was when we came up with the idea of using three cups. We've tried to teach our children that it is not how much money you have that is important, it's how you use it. The three cups we have given them have led us on many wonderful adventures together and have brought our family a lot of joy. We hope you will experience the same joy, excitement and success using three cups with your children... and will share the Three Cups story with others."
- Tony Townsley, CPA
Mark St. Germain - author

"This endearing, true story of love, responsibility and charity is retold tenderly by Mark St. Germain whose stage, television and screenwriting credits include: Camping with Henry and Tom, Gifts of the Magi, The Cosby Show, and the critically acclaimed motion picture Duma."
April Willy - illustrator

"Three Cups is illustrated by award-winning painter April Willy, whose children's book credits include: Have You Ever Seen A Moose Taking A Bath?, Have You Ever Seen A Moose Brushing His Teeth?, Why is Mommy Sleeping? and Full Moon Maxi."
