The Bridge of the Golden Wood is a beautifully illustrated children's book teaching entrepreneurship and helping others. Amanda (age 9) easily understood the message of the story. She told me that we need to work to earn money, that we should enjoy our work, and that we should be kind to others. This book also teaches children about responsibility. It's a unique picture book that offers resources at the end. I recommend it for children ages 4 - 9.
Disclosure: I grabbed a copy from Amazon Kindle when it was for free. This is my honest review.
