Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Penny's lemonade stand is doing a booming business in this delightful book, which is designed to help children begin reading and solving basic math problems. The upbeat rhyming text and exuberant illustrations will engage and delight young children. When Penny begins selling lemonade, she charges one cent. As the day goes on, she increases the price to a nickel, a dime, a quarter, and then fifty cents. Her total profit is one dollar, which she uses to buy her mother a birthday card. The illustrations clearly show what each coin denomination looks like and its value. At the back of the book there is a chart showing how many pennies equal one nickel, how many nickels equal one dime, and so on. This book is part of the "Step into Reading + Math" series. 2000, Random House, $11.99 and $3.99. Ages 4 to 6. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati

In this book Penny sells lemonade in order to earn some money. This story teached kids the value of currency along with being a book they can read themselves. I have been looking for a book that my daughter, who is in kindergarten, could read on her own. She enjoyed this book very much. She was able to read it on her own by sounding the words out. She immedialtely want to take it to school to show her teacher she could read a book. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to help there children develop their reading skills!
