Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this simple story (and simple math lesson) for new readers, Penny has a lemonade stand. First, she charges one cent, then two, then a nickel. The coins clink into her bank, with Grandma spending a dime and, later, other customers paying as much as two quarters. At the end of the day, Penny counts her money and is delighted to find she has earned 100 cents, a dollar. The jaunty rhymed text is illustrated with happy watercolor artwork that fills the pages. The money message is emphasized by the pictures of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters dotting the spreads. The last page once again shows drawings of the coins and how five pennies equal a nickel, two nickels equal a dime, etc. This book from the Step into Reading Plus Math series does double duty.

From the Inside Flap

On a beautiful summer day a young girl sets up a lemonade stand and sells enough cups of refreshment to add up to a dollar. Told in rhyme, this delightful story combines the teaching of addition with a traditional rite of childhood entrepreneurship!

My son enjoyed reading the story and the math component as well. It is easy enough for a beginning reader, and yet it can keep their attention as well.

Penny is a little girl who sells lemonade to friends and family, she is trying to raise money for a very special project. It's a sweet story. The only small negative is that the book refers to the US currency and therefore it is not relevant for kids living in other parts of the world.

Apart from that it's a perfect self reader. The story line is engaging, young children love it. The images are beautifully done with lots of color and detail. The font is big enough and the story is not too long.

My five year old just loves to read and is reading at a 4th grade level which makes it difficult to find books to interest her because as the older a child gets, the more questionable some of the reading becomes, but this did the trick, there were not words like: stupid, fat, dumb, but it still had a story line.

My great nephew, 3 years old, received a Lemonade stand/Grocery store and a cashier for last Christmas. He loves playing and will deepen his voice to say can I help you mam. But he will always give you back more money hen you give. So I was happy to find this little reader that will help him grow and understand the concept of change.

This early reader became one of the favorites of my 6-yr old. She read it in one setting without prodding on my part, and that's unusual at this stage. Math concepts (as in money-counting) and quality illustrations are an added bonus for me. After we read the library copy, I just had to buy it!

Love this story!!! Colorful, happy illustrations. Very cute story that girls and boys will love. My son is in Kindergarten and he recently had an assignment of identifying the value of coins and he got them all correct and I know that he had lots of help because of this book.
