Lemonade War Update
Swim team practice was cancelled for my kids on Friday afternoon, leaving us with a few unscheduled hours. Mostly we loafed around the house reading and/or playing with plastic army men. I read The Lemonade War and have been urging my older kids to read it ever since. That sort of makes no sense as they are the ones who selected it in the first place. I know they will eventually read it, but I want to discuss it with them. There is some great stuff in there about marketing and sibling rivalry. There was one unresolved bit at the end, the theft of some money, which I found dissatisfying. I like justice to be served, I suppose. Other than that, I strongly recommend The Lemonade War for second through fifth grade readers.
