Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
Caroline's grandmother has a secret recipe for the best lemonade in town. Caroline persuades her grandmother to share the recipe, and then sets up a stand to sell the beverage so that she can help her friend Shannon get a new wheelchair. Two of her other friends also decide to help Shannon. They walk around the neighborhood and ask everyone to contribute loose change to the fundraiser. Catherine, Katelyn, and Adam begin taking care of dogs as a way to add even more money to the fund for the new wheelchair. On a warm weekend, other youngsters wash cars to raise additional cash. The biggest event is a paddle race on the river, organized by Caroline's grandmother. Shannon gets her new chair, and everyone learns that it can be fun to help others. The brightly—colored, cartoonish illustrations accurately portray the action and emotion of the characters and are well-paired with the text. Since this is a picture book, adults will most likely have to introduce it to older children capable of using the moneyraising suggestions located on the last page, since that is really the main purpose of the book. Consider buying only if this answers a need in your particular situation. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
