My rating: ★★★★☆
Did you enjoy the story of the Three Little Pigs when you were growing up? Do you tell the same story to your children? Well guess what! There is a new Three Little Pigs story that I recommend for you to share with your children. It is Give, Save, Spend with The Three Little Pigs by Clint Greenleaf.
It is a cute story with a great lesson.
In this book the Big Bad Wolf is still blowing down houses. The Three Little Pigs decide to help the other animals by building them brick homes of their own. Of course, having a building company means spending and making money! This story teaches children about saving, spending, and gifting money charitably.
I found this book cute and educational. The illustrations are nicely done. The writing style is easy for younger children to understand. There is a glossary at the end of the story for any of the bigger, more difficult words. I thought that the glossary was a nice addition to the book. This way if your child is reading it alone, the definitions is readily available.
I sat down and read it with my daughter last night. She said that she enjoyed the story and thought that the pictures were cute. She had never thought to donate money to charity and thinks that it is a great idea. She liked how the three pigs all wanted to do something different with the money, but came up with a way to make all three of them happy.
So my opinion of this children's book is that it is definitely worth reading. My child enjoyed the story as well as learned something important about charity. Children will learn the importance of saving their money, spending it wisely, and also donating some to charity. Those are all good lessons to learn at any point in your life.
