Lemonade in Winter: A Book about Two Kids Counting Money

by Emily Jenkins
Illustrated by G. Brian Karas

Published by Schwartz & Wade, 2012
40 pages
ISBN: 978𢠥75-858833

Ages 48

When Pauline and her little brother John-John decide it抯 a great day to have a lemonade stand, nothing抯 going to stand in their way, especially not a puny blizzard. They pool their money for supplies and head to the corner store, then make the drinks and wait for customers. Whenever there抯 a slow spell (and there抯 a lot of them), the two come up with a way to attract business梐dvertisements, decorations, a sale, and of course a jingle, which Pauline sings over and over. And customers come: neighbor Harvey and his dogs, Ms. Gordon and her two small children, Aidan and Heather arm in arm, five manicurists in 損uffy coats who work across the street. There are some money basics in the narrative (揈ach time you get four quarters that抯 a dollar) and in the afterword titled 揚auline Explains Money to John-John (揇imes are the cutest), but it抯 the charm of Emily Jenkins story set in an urban community that makes it priceless. G. Brian Karas抯 illustrations capture both the cold temperatures and warm hearts found on a frigid day.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
