Lemonade in Winter: A Book about Two Kids Counting Money Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A lemonade stand in winter? Yes, that's exactly what Pauline and John-John intend to have, selling lemonade and limeade--and also lemon-limeade. With a catchy refrain (Lemon lemon LIME, Lemon LIMEADE! Lemon lemon LIME, Lemon LEMONADE!), plus simple math concepts throughout, here is a read-aloud that's great for storytime and classroom use, and is sure to be a hit among the legions of Jenkins and Karas fans.

Review:

"Pauline and her little brother, John-John, are convinced that a stand selling 'Lemonade and limeade — and also lemon-limeade!' will go over big, even in the middle of a bitter winter. Mom and Dad think not. But their sheer chutzpah and salesmanship ('Lemon lemon LIME, lemon LEMONADE!/ All that it will cost ya? Fifty cents a cup!') eventually earn the duo... well, maybe not a profit, but enough for two Popsicles. The book's clinical subtitle is a major understatement: Jenkins (Toys Come Home) and Karas (Neville) have created a book that's richly rewarding in many ways. Yes, there are some lightly proffered money-counting lessons, but this is also a beautifully restrained tribute to trust and tenderness shared by siblings; an entrepreneurship how-to that celebrates the thrill of the marketplace without shying away from its cold realities; and a parable about persistence. Moreover, it's visually gorgeous: Karas employs an impressive repertoire of textures and a broad palette of grays and browns to convey both the icy chill and cozy interiors of winter. In real money terms, this one's an amazing bargain. Ages 3 — 7. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
