Overview

The Lemonade War (The Lemonade War Series #1) by Jacqueline Davies

For a full hour, he poured lemonade. The world is a thirsty place, he thought as he nearly emptied his fourth pitcher of the day. And I am the Lemonade King.

Fourth-grader Evan Treski is people-smart. He’s good at talking with people, even grownups. His younger sister, Jessie, on the other hand, is math-smart, but not especially good with people. So when the siblings’ lemonade stand war begins, there really is no telling who will win—or even if their fight will ever end. Brimming with savvy marketing tips for making money at any business, definitions of business terms, charts, diagrams, and even math problems, this fresh, funny, emotionally charged novel subtly explores how arguments can escalate beyond anyone’s intent.

I found 'The Lemonade War' by Jacqueline Davies a wonderful read! The book is written for elementary aged children between the ages of 7-11. The book is centered on two siblings trying to beat each other in selling lemonade. The goal is to sell $100.00 in five days. The winner takes the losers money. This whole war would have never gotten started in the first place if it wasn't for Evan's little sister Jessie getting a letter in the mail to their mother saying that she was skipping 3rd grade! Evan couldn't stand the thought of his LITTLE sister being in the same class as him.... He didn't feel that he was as smart as or even smarter than his sister. He felt she would for sure embarrass him. So the war began... Little did either sibling know the hard work that lay ahead of them¿ Lots of sweat, heartache, and money later they are ready for the WAR to be over and to be close like they once were. This is a great story of sibling rivalry and a great read for anyone. I would recommend this book to anyone!

I am reading this book with my students, on our own time and then sharing ideas after each chapter. We are hooked! It's so hard for me to not get ahead of my kids because I promised them not too, yet I just don't want to put the book down! You are probably thinking, this is just elementary school teacher that reads only children's books. Not at all, I used to work in the finance industry until I decided that it wasn't intellectually stimulating and decided to quit. This book even has some great sales tips that anyone can use! You are in for a great surprise!!!

I just finished this book and i loved it but i wanted to bite Scotts head off. I cant wait to read the next one. If you like books that have competition and "want to read more parts" this is a great book for you.
