Book Review & Giveaway: "Three Cups" - CLOSED!

I was sent the book, "Three Cups" by Mark St. Germain, to review and to offer two (2) lucky readers a chance to win their own copy in a giveaway. "Three Cups," is beautifully illustrated by April Willy. And is based on a true story by Tony Townsley.

Information on the book:

Tony Townsley was inspired one day when listening to the radio on how he could give back to his community in a meaningful way. He decided to pursue something using the allowance system he and his wife had been using for 15 years, with his own children.

With the help from his friend Scott Willy they tell their story through a children's book. The story mirrors their weekly allowance system. Which is to divide the allowance into three cups. One for:

  • Savings
  • Spending
  • Charity

My take on the book:

This book is a great foundation to teach children the importance of managing their money in a responsible way. "Three Cups" will help teach children positive habits about money.

I was very happy, when my daughter seemed very interested in the concept of this book. She had me read her the book. And wants to try out the 3 cups system. We have even incorporated her doing some chores around the house in order to earn some money! This is a win-win for everyone.

I would recommend this book to parents, grandparents, etc. who would like to teach children money management.

"Three Cups" is available to order on the Three Cups website and on
