This is a cute book to teach children about math. It goes over graphs and money management. It would be very useful in the classroom. ( )

This is a great book to show how seasons influence supply and demand. This pared with Supply and Demand by Janeen R. Adil is a great way of introducing to topic of Supply and Demand. ( )

Summary:
When the neighborhood children realize their clubhouse needs repaired, they band together to make a lemonade stand to earn the money to fix it. To chart their progress they use a bar graph. The graph shows how many cups they sell each day.

My Reaction:
I loved the illustrations in this book. Anyway to incorporate humor into a story that teaches children math I'm all for!

Classroom Extensions:
1. This is perfect book to read when teaching children about graphs.
2. This would also be perfect to use when teaching children how to earn money and be responsible. ( )

When they see that their clubhouse is in disrepair and their piggybank is empty, Danny, Matthew, Meg, and Sheri decide to start a lemonade stand to raise the funds to fix up the clubhouse. With the help of their parrot Petey, and eventually the assistance of a the new kid in town Jed who has a talent for juggling, the kids sell lemonade to the whole neighborhood and chart their progress with a bar graph illustrating how many cups they’ve sold each day.

Designed as part of a series of books to teach mathematics, Lemonade for Sale also has an undercurrent of economic concepts present, such as the understanding that repairs cost money and that the children must find a way to raise that money. The book ends with suggestions for activities to expand upon the mathematics concepts presented in the book as well as recommendations for related reading. Some of these also serve to further economic concepts, such as the idea that adults could help children start their own lemonade stand and keep track of the sales.

The illustrations imbue a lot of fun into the book even when it isn’t necessarily readily apparent in the text. For instance, the children all wear lemon-shaped hats while selling lemonade, which is not specifically stated in the text but adds a dose of humor to this mathematics-geared lesson book.

I reviewed this book for EconKids. ( )
