Lemonade in Winter
by Emily Jenkins
, Illustrated by G. Brian Karas
TLA 2x2 Award
Kids Wings Award

Pauline comes up with a creative plan to make a lemonade stand and, together with her little brother, John-John, they undertake what their parents warn them will not be easy. Why? Because it's WINTER! Snow is everywhere! Freezing winds are blowing! Who would buy ice-cold lemonade during the icy cold winter? Where will they get the ingredients? How will they pay for them?

Undaunted, they discover the basics of business! Advertise! Decorate! Entertain! Price low enough to attract customers but high enough to make a profit!

What a funny way to introduce potential entrepreneurs to the joys of creating a business and applying math skills! Even as an anticipatory set for older kids, Lemonade in Winter's embedded themes can inspire discussion and extension among all ages.
