Caterina and the Lemonade Stand (Hardcover)
Virgie's Staff Pick (July 2014): This is a fun book for those little summertime entrepreneurs! Caterina wants to buy a scooter, but realizes that “money doesn’t grow on trees.” But wait … lemons do! From this point on, Caterina created her own lemonade stand, making it unique so it will “stand out” from all the other lemonade stands. The story and illustrations are the perfect celebration of summer!— From Virgie's Picks
Caterina creates the most unique lemonade stand in the neighborhood in this sunny second book of an endearing new series, just right for fans of Max & Ruby and Ladybug Girl. Caterina loves making lists and planning big, creative projects, and this time she's planning a lemonade stand - the perfect summer pastime. She's hoping to earn enough money for a new scooter, but finds that she's not the only one in town with the lemonade idea. Everybody seems to be selling the refreshing treat, so how can Caterina's stand truly stand out? Leave it to our hard-working, artistic bird (with a little help from her faithful younger brother, Leo) to make a joyous success of her plan. Readers will want to try Caterina's bright idea, or maybe come up with a great one of their own. And they'll cheer the surprise ending -- a happy one for Caterina and especially for sweet Leo.
