Are your kids bored? Want to earn some money? Like to bake? This is the cookbook for you. The Lemonade Stand Cookbook gives you everything you will need to help your child mix and bake goodies to sell at their lemonade stand. The recipes are simple but delicious and have a lot of variety so you don’t have to make the same old plain sugar cookies to go with your lemonade. But it’s not just about the baked goodies, you will not look at lemonade the same way again. Why make plain old kool-aid or lemonade? Why not make some smoothies or flavored lemonades? A little variety is going to draw in more customers. But this book does not stop at goodies alone. How much attention are you going to draw sitting on a folding chair and table? Why not make some flashy signs, fancy straws or glasses? The book also gives you some ideas to catch your customer’s eyes and draw them in. I really enjoyed this book. It has so much information about everything for a lemonade stand. It’s has great recipes and wonderful eye catching ideas. If you want your kids to learn how to make a little money this book has a lot of ideas to get them and you started. I received The Lemonade Stand Cookbook from PR by the Book for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.

This excellently designed and wonderfully appropriate book for children is a must-have. I would have loved to have it when my children were young. So at the onset let me say that I encourage moms, aunties, and grandmas to get one for their young folks. Does it just address the budding entrepreneur who wishes to set up business on the front lawn? Absolutely not, though it has wonderful tips and instructions along that line. This book is replete with a variety of yummy items requiring a sparse amount of ingredients that boys and girls can produce in the kitchen. Then not to be left out, the artsy can find several fun crafts to occupy and bring them a bit of creative joy. The pictures are so beautifully done and the layout great. I love the happy children shown throughout the book. It simply speaks joy and happiness and exudes the possibility of happy times spent becoming a lemonade stand owner or simply making mom and dad a glass of cranberry lemonade or strawberry lemonade.
