Book Review of Give, Save, Spend with the Three Little Pigs by Clint Greenleaf

I had the opportunity to read an advance electronic copy of Give, Save, Spend with the Three Little Pigs by Clint Greenleaf.  This is a story about the Three Little Pigs starting a business building brick homes for other animals when the Big Bad Wolf starts to blow down all of the animals' homes in the forest.  The Three Little Pigs' business is in high demand and ends up being very successful.  The pigs have to decide what to do with all of the money that they earned building the brick houses.  One of the pigs thinks they should use the money for something fun.  One thinks they should use their money to help other animals in the forest.  The third pig thinks they should save the money.  Hence, the concept Give, Save, Spend comes into play.

First of all, I have to say that the illustrations are gorgeous and the idea of the story is a good one.  It is important for kids to learn how to manage money.   With that said, I think that there are other books out there that teach this concept better.  We own some other books that teach the Give, Save, Spend concept, and they hold my daughter's attention better than this book did.

*I received an advance electronic copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
