Description: Pauline and John-John decide to have a lemonade stand in the middle of winter. Young readers can learn to count coins with Pauline and John-John as they count their coins, buy ingredients, and sell lemonade.
Story: This book is a great concept book that teaches children about money, how to count it, spend it, and save it. I think the book even does a good job in the way it presents coins, counting them, and identifying their worth. But the story just didn’t really work for me. I think I would have enjoyed it more if it had been set in the spring or summer time, rather than trying to be original and different by having a lemonade stand in the middle of winter snow storm. This book is getting a lot of buzz, but I think it’s more for the concept of the book rather than story.
Illustrations: The illustrations for this book were great.
