Teach your children to think for themselves and why America is great. With 51 captioned illustrations, 6 parables that teach lessons of life, and Questions for Kids at the end of each major section, Don't Take My Lemonade Stand - An American Philosophy is written to help parents teach their children. We as parents have the obligation to take charge of who is teaching our children and what our children are being taught. This book is for those that believe in the preeminence of children, the vigorous expression of patriotism, and the power of clear-eyed optimism. Janie Johnson says "The strength of our country resides in the minds of our children, and the future of our country will be found in their actions." There's no question that our political system has become corrupt and politicians -- on both sides of the aisle -- are voting in favor of the special interests that donated to them instead of the citizens who elected them. They have all contributed to the abandonment of the Common Sense Conservative principles upon which our country was founded and under which we have prospered. Don't Take My Lemonade Stand: An American Philosophy is the book that tells where we came from, how out-of-control, big government/big spending policies are driving us to ruin, and exactly what we the people can do to take back our country right here, right now, and get it back on course to peace, prosperity, and opportunity.

About the Author

The youngest of nine children and the mother of four, Janie Johnson ranked number one in the United States as a junior tennis player. She received distinction as a three-time All American and Pac Ten Champion at UCLA, and as a former top one hundred professional who competed in all four Grand Slams--Wimbledon, French Open, Australian Open and the US Open. Her extensive travels around the world, as a professional tennis player, helped to inform her political philosophy. Since leaving the professional tennis circuit, Janie has devoted herself to raising her children and believes that everyday people can and must make a difference in our country. Her brand of Common Sense Conservatism focuses on children, patriotism, and optimism. She is an informed voter who cares deeply about our country and its founding principles. She represents all of those who have not been particularly involved in the political process until recent events. Though a registered Republican, Janie is displeased with nearly all politicians, including many Republicans. Her values are consistent with the Constitution and the notions of our founding fathers. Her book is written for everyday Americans by an everyday American. Janies husband, C. Ray Johnson, is an entrepreneur, a real estate investor, a turnaround specialist, and a former Fortune 500 company President. He has authored a best selling business book, CEO Logic. Janie lives with her husband and their four sons in Northern Nevada. She is a graduate of UCLA with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.

This book just plain doesn't make sense, and much of what the author conveys is entirely contrary to established historical facts. In some cases, the author even contradicts herself. As the book progresses, it becomes fairly clear this wasn't intended as a children's book, but rather as right-wing propaganda. I could see this type of thing being used as a means to circumvent campaign fundraising restrictions. What I can't see is as, is a book for impressionable young minds.

So many things are wrong that it would take too long to write a full review. Did not find it enjoyable. Not recommended, especially not for children.

Janie Johnson says Liberals are Un-American. I'd like her to tell that to my liberal father, who fought against facism in WWII, so she could have her little lemonade stand. This book is right wing rhetoric crap. But I bet she she sells books and makes money, so I can't say she's dumb.

Should check out her Twitter feed. I hope that someone takes her lemonade stand and everything else she owns. She calls herself a Christian but she is merely another Christ-stain.

Liberal rants not withstanding, this book teaches Conservative philosophy, and liberals are not expected to understand it much less agree with it. Janie Johnson has done a superb job in presenting the subject. This reference piece is a must read if you want to teach your children what the founding fathers had in mind when they were confronted with a tyrannical government, much like what we are facing today.

Save your money! Halfway through the first chapter I started laughing at how bad it was but that wore off quickly. Poorly written, inaccurate, no research and it doesn't even make sense. Like someone gave a lunatic a crayon, took away her meds and hit her repeatedly with electric shocks if she stopped scribbling. Didn't anyone proof read this mess? This book is not just unsuitable for children it is actually unreadable. Save your money.

If you don't want to spend hours slugging through a history book -which may or may not even discuss the Constitution-- to explain to your children why America is great. This book is for you and your family. Great cartoons to illustrate points for the kids, okay, even I loved the cartoons. A clear message about why our Country is so unique and why it is currently being "changed" to something the forefathers did not want. Simple, direct and written with strong conviction. Even liberals should read this so that the Constitution has meaning and why it is the single greatest historical, political and important document in the history of human government. Read it, understand the USA, share it with others... by the way... one can read the book out of like in the bathroom and not lose the flow of the book. Great read.

Don't Take My Lemonade Stand is a must read, especially for children, who want to know what really makes the American economy the envy of the world. The liberal U.S. media does not give an accurate report or picture of what really works to keep this country prosperous and strong. Don't Take My Lemonade Stand will help everyone understand the principles that provided the foundation for our past economic growth and success. This understanding is vital for anyone to be able to chart a path into the future that will lead to continuing growth and prosperity for future generations or Americans.
