FEATURED BOOK! Lemonade in Winter is the seventh book in our Great Expectations series! Pauline and John-John's entrepreneurial streak inspired us to create lots of activities and projects: we've collected tips from a blind business person; ideas for identifying, saving, and spending money; games about following directions and team building; and much more!

A lemonade stand in winter?

On a cold winter day as a mean wind blows and icicles hang from windowsills, Pauline and her younger brother, John-John, decide to have a lemonade stand. Gathering all their quarters (Pauline's favorite coins), they buy their supplies and make lemonade, limeade, and lemon-limeade. On their mostly empty street with the snow falling, they attract a few customers — Harvey walking his three dogs, Mrs. Gordon and her twins, Heather and Aidan strolling arm in arm, and five manicurists in puffy coats. Despite their advertising, entertainment, decorations, and sales, the children make only four dollars, which is less than the cost of their supplies but enough for two popsicles.

"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." — Publishers Weekly, Starred

"This quirky tale is a boon for young entrepreneurs, who will enjoy . . . working out the math after each sale. Abounding with teaching possibilities. . . ." — School Library Journal
