"Three Cups," a children's book by Mark St. Germain and April Willy.

Looking for a way to teach generosity and life-long charitable giving to the children in your family? Author Mark St.Germain and artist April Willy have a suggestion: The next time you give your children an allowance, give each of them three cups. One for savings, one for spending — and one for charity.

How much to put in each cup? Now, that should get everybody in the family talking. Let us know how the conversation goes at your house.
