An easy read with a great storyline and a wonderful ending. With a plot that catches attention, it leaves a lot of room for conversation with your child.

When we first started this program I would sit and have my son read books to me. When he was finished reading it he said,” This is the best book I have ever read! It’s so good!” It brought tears to my eyes to see how Prince Percy comes to recognize, things we can not buy can have the most value of all in life, and can bring the greatest happiness. He has a change of heart. I love that about this story. It is wonderful!

Money does not bring happiness

Such a great story that teaches the values in family and love, riches and treasures do not bring happiness, and to be kind to others.


Money isn't everything!

I love the teachings of this book that money isn’t “wealth”. Zero potty humor and just all around great family reading time.

When Prince Percy, proud as a peacock, is rescued by a humble family in the woods, he is shocked to learn something—the family believes they are richer than he is. What treasure could they possibly possess that would compare to his prized ruby? Through adventure, misfortune, and the love and forgiveness of the people in his kingdom, Percy might just be able to learn what is truly valuable.
