I wrote this book to help children learn thankfulness.

This book brings kids from greed to gratitude. G.K. Chesterton said:
"Gratitude is the mother of all the virtues."

THE RICHEST KID IN THE POOR HOUSE is about a boy who doesn't appreciate his parents until he gets a hamster who doesn't appreciate HIM! He learns the value of what really matters, and becomes truly rich in the process.

With critical acclaim by Ray Bradbury who said, "Made me wish I was 8 years old again! Turning the last page, I almost was!"

For a Limited time only I am offering a FREE COPY of The Richest Kid in The Poor House to any child expressing gratitude or thankfulness for someone else.

You may also purchase this book through EduDesigns - but why not let your kids get one free?

While they are writing about someone they are thankful for, they will not only be practicing their writing skills, they will be thinking about what they are grateful for, maybe even YOU! Reading and writing are potent ways to inspire children to better character by focusing their ideas into creativity

"With the wisdom, humor, and loving experience acquired from raising seven children, David and Ruth Elliott have written and beautifully illustrated a heartwarming story about a young boy that will engage readers of all ages. Combining familiar themes of a lost pet, the 'Why can't I do what others do?' and the wonder of a father's sacrificial love, THE RICHEST KID IN THE POORHOUSE reminds us all of the faith and values that make life truly worthwhile." - Patricia Ann 'Pann' Baltz 1993 California Teacher of the Year 1993 Disney Teacher of the Year
