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.

Editor reviews

This book is so adorable. Siblings Pauline and John-John decide to have a lemonade stand during a snow blizzard. Sounds silly, right? Not only does the book help children learn a valuable lesson in selling the right item at the right time, but they also learn about quarters.

I love how instead of flat out telling them "no", their parents decide to let them learn a lesson. I really appreciated that. As a parent, it's nice to read a book where parents encourage their children to learn, instead of just saying "yes" or "no". I also loved how Pauline and John-John changed their selling strategy throughout the book. What a fantastic lesson to not only children, but adults reading the book as well.

My family and I really enjoyed this book. The book would be a great addition to any family library or classroom library.
