I loved the book, however it was not really too relevant because of the currency pictured. Great for children who are learning multiplication table.

Marketing strategies and money value all in one. Done in a fun read. Great for Grade 1.

Despite the cold and blustery weather (and their parents' doubt about their chances at success), Pauline and her brother John-John set up a stand to sell lemonade on a very snowy day. They don't have many takers, so they try some new tactics: a jingle, acrobatics to attract the attention of passersby, and even a drastic price cut. By the time the day is done, John-John and Pauline have made just enough money for two popsicles - although not as much as they spent on supplies for their lemonade stand. This warm story includes easy-to-absorb math lessons (including a section at the end titled "Pauline Explains Money to John-John") and is also a cosy, feel-good tale of a brother-and-sister adventure.

A fantastic book if you are introducing money and its value. It's too bad there are not pictures of Canadian Money.
