This book is a great read for an elementary math class learning about money. Teachers can use this to introduce the topic. It is repetitive which helps students remember. For example they say "four quarters, that's a dollar" many times throughout the story. They also change the price of the lemonade they are selling which changes the amount of money they are making. After they sell all of the lemonade, they use the money they made to buy 2 popsicles. This also teaches students about buying and selling, and that you work towards a goal. ( )

A little girl and her younger brother open a lemonade/ limeade stand in the middle of winter. The little girl breaks down how money works for her little brother and create a day of fun. In the end the little girl is sad because she “lost money” but her little brother suggests they can buy two popsicles!

I really like the way the book portrays the typical persistence of a child and the way Pauline and her little brother John-John interact. I like how the author repeated the lessons on counting and identifying the coins. Like John-John, a younger audience would really do well with the repetition and older children would learn how to teach others. It is a very cute book and could serve as a good tool in a math classroom. ( )

Reading all the Emily Jenkins books I can find. This one has a nice repetitive chant in it as the siblings hock their wares. The math is lost on the 2.5yo but this book would be fun to build a lesson around - and not just a numbers lesson. The kids are creative in attracting customers, even though lemonade (and limeade, and lemon-limeade) aren't typically winter beverages. They're persistent, and even when they don't succeed as the older sister hoped, the younger brother helps her see the bright side. ( )

This book deals with the concept of money and making a profit. The children count coins throughout the book, spending quarters on lemonade supplies, charging 50¢ then 25¢ pet cup, counting the quarters to check their profit, and then spending the coins on popsicles. I think the book missed the opportunity to turn the problem around on the reader to encourage them to figure out the amount of money they received, instead the book went through it for them. This was a really cute story, though, and think it's very appropriate for kindergartners. ( )
