Summary: An enthusiastic girl puts together a lemonade stand on wheels and heads out to make some sales, but soon finds that other lemonade sellers have gotten ahead of her. She pushes her stand through the busy streets until suddenly it gets away from her, and she’s forced to chase it out of town and through the woods. It finally lands by the river, where she sits, feeling terrible, until a man comes along in a boat. She sells him a glass of lemonade, then starts hawking her wares. Before long, she has an octopus, a bear, a couple of crocodiles, and a host of other animal customers lining up. After selling out, she heads for home, where she falls asleep dreaming of another fantastic day of sales tomorrow. 40 pages; ages 3-8.
Pros: Enjoy the last few weeks of summer with this imaginative tale that is literally about making lemonade when life gives you lemons.
Cons: I’m thirsty.
