Cups Held Out

by Judith L. Roth
illustrations by Brooke Rothshank
ISBN: 0-8361-9316-4
Published by Herald Press
Price: $12.99

A young girl and her father cross the border into Mexico, where the child encounters poverty for the first time. Together, she and her dad ponder the question, “What can we do about poor people?” Should they put money into every outstretched cup? Will buying a blanket make a difference? What about that shiny bike back home?

There are no pat solutions to the problem of poverty. But there is value in asking the question and searching for personal answers. This book opens discussion for parents and children on responsibility toward the poor of the world.

For children ages 6 to 10 or elementary age ann their families. And for teachers, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and anyone who is interested in helping children think about sharing with those in need in poverty stricken countries.
