|What would a brother and sister pair do
with only one week before summer ends
and school begins? What if they were
also at odds with each other – have a
lemonade war, of course. Evan (10
years old) and Jessie (8 years old)
have just learned that despite their
age difference they will both be in Mrs.
Overton’s fourth grade class this
fall. Can you imagine all the
controversy this will cause? The
author does an excellent job of
depicting how sibling rivalry can creep
into the strongest families, especially
when each member has different talents
and abilities. Included in this book
are all the mathematical calculations
and business terminology used for the
children’s lemonade business which is
helpful for future entrepreneurs.
