It is winter and the kids bored. Why not have a lemonade stand? This is what a young girl, Pauline, wanted to do even though her parents didn’t think it was a great idea. Her younger brother wanted to help and she gladly accepts his offer. The book is clever in using math to count money and the children have creative ideas of how to sell a cold drink on a cold day.
