" This book is great for helping children partition objects and sort objects. This book can help children understand similarities and differences. This book allows new math concepts to develop while learning about a lemonade stand. They also learn about how to be a business owner so this book could also be used in social studies/ children- friendly economics. " said.

" Four friends want to fix up their clubhouse but need money. They open a lemonade stand and use bar graphs to track their sales. This book illustrates basic economics and working for what you want. In class a discussion about different types of graphs and beginning economics could take place. Appropriate for first thru third grade. " said.

" When a clubhouse becomes broken, two children set out to raise money for repairs by selling lemonade at a lemonade stand. To track the lemonade sells and money raised for the fund, the children use graphing to stay organized. This is a fun and relatable way for children to connect to graphing with great explanations and steps shown for each new sell. You could easily use this story for a review on money or to introduce graphing to young children. " said.

" This is a wonderful book about four students who decide to run a lemonade stand in order to raise money for their clubhouse that needs some repairs. You may use this for introducing/teaching charting and graphing because the characters create a simple bar graph to show their sales. "Lemonade for Sale" is a well illustrated book that keeps students engaged. It is great for grade 1st-3rd and also for a visual learning experience. " said.

"This is another fun story in the MathStart Level 3 series by Stuart J. Murphy. We like these books; they incorporate math principles into the story and show how math is fun and useful in everyday life.

I liked the determination of the children to find a way to fund their club, but I was a little put off by the sheer numbers of their sales. Perhaps they live on a busy city street - otherwise most neighborhoods would not be able to support such numbers and I'm afraid that enterprising children might be misled about their profit potential from a small lemonade stand. In fact, our girls have brought up the idea to have a stand of their own, but with our quiet neighborhood they'd be lucky to make a sale or two each day. Still, it's an entertaining story and the lesson on bar graphs is easy to understand. I was thrilled when our girls took the concept a step further and talked about the average sales for the week.

Overall, it's an entertaining story with colorful and informative illustrations. It's a fun book to read aloud and we enjoyed reading this book together.

" Feeble attempt at a story with the main purpose being teaching mathematical concepts to kids. If the story was more entertaining then I’d give it a pass but it’s not lol. " said.

" 13 years of use on this one. Love it. " said.
