Where I got the book from: Author/Publisher NOTE: I received this book for free from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.

Blurb from the cover:

A child with a knack for solving problems helps some hungry fish and finds a treasure. Illustrated folk tale teaches how to spot opportunities to help others and make money; comes with ideas for businesses; money-making activities; and online resources on finding customers, managing money, job ideas and moving up in an organization (for ages 5 and up). Young children will be captivated by the story; older ones will want to apply the things they learn. Teach someone to fish: a how-to book on careers, small business, and learning how to serve/earn money.

My rating:  3.0 stars out of a scale of 5

My review: I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review. This book is a children’s book that teaches a lesson about earning money. More than that though, it really is about teaching children to take a step back and think creatively about how situations they are presented with could not only benefit themselves but also allow them to help other people. I thought the illustrations in this book were beautifully done and I think it would be an interesting addition to a child’s library.


The bottom line: This was a cute book and an interesting approach to teaching kids a particular lesson. Obviously not my usual type of read. I really loved the illustrations.
