Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Publishers Weekly Best of Children's Books 2012

Starred Review, School Library Journal, August 1, 2012:
“This quirky tale is a boon for young entrepreneurs, who will enjoy looking at the humorous details in the pictures as much as working out the math after each sale.”

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, July 30, 2012:
“In real money terms, this one’s an amazing bargain.”

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
On a cold, blowing, snowy winter day a little girl named Pauline decides she wants to set up a lemonade stand outside her home. Of course her parents try to discourage her, but little brother John-John thinks it is a great idea and wants to help. The two youngsters collect all the quarters they can find (amounting to six dollars) and run off to the store for supplies. Quickly they make lemonade, limeade, and lemon-limeade, set up shop outside and set a price of fifty cents per cup. Using various antics such as cartwheels, balloon decorations, chanting at the top of their lungs as well as a sale price of twenty-five cents a cup, they finally have empty pitchers. But when Pauline counts up their earnings, it totals only four dollars. She is most unhappy because they did not make a profit. Sensibly John-John makes Pauline realize that sixteen quarters is still money and that they can use it to buy themselves popsicles. The illustrations, done with ink and colored pencils in subdued colors are just right for the story. A repeated refrain makes this ideal for story time as it enables children to actively participate. Teachers will also find the book useful for teaching math concepts, as the last page demonstrates how Pauline teaches John-John about money. Add this to the acquisition list as it is certain to be useful as well as enjoyable. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth

    Great Read!

    Great book... touches on siblings working together to accomplish a goal and also learning to count their money. I purchased this for my grandson who is a bit young for this book but his older sister, who is 8 thoroughly enjoyed it. Wonderful picutres and illustrations as well.
