If you have not had a chance to read this book with your kids, take some time and do it. Our library system did not have it so we had to get it on inter-library loan, but now we will purchase it to have in our family library. Our 6 year old was captivated. He had so many questions and his little mind was thinking, thinking, thinking. He had some of the best insights and thoughts about God and money.
Very simply, the story is about 3 brothers and their treatment of people and the use of money. At one point in the story Jackson “Mom do you mean that Hans and Schwartz (2 of the brothers) loved money more than people?” I replied “yes”. His little face got all contorted and he shook his head. You could tell that really got him. We talked and talked about so many things after finishing the book. That is what a good narrative does. Leaves you thinking and thinking and then a few years later you are still thinking and thinking. Already in just a few days since completing the book we have referred back to it time and time again. This would be a great Christmas present for a family read aloud.
