7th May Lemonade Day

How many 'lemonade' books could a library have? Well I was surprised to find eleven! So many of the picture book series have a title with a 'lemonade' stall. Is this still really every child's first attempt at being entrepreneurial? The  originator of this dayMichael Holthouse thinks so and it is now a highly organised event in the United States.
Look for these books and as well as the series you will find a wonderful poetry book, Lemonade and Other Poems Squeezed from a Single Word,  a book that introduces children to bar graphs Lemonade For Sale,  a story that will have children giggling with power because they know that what the turkey is about to drink is not lemonade, I Love Lemonade,  a beginning chapter book, Magic Lemonade and a story about mindfulness and meditation, The Lemonade Hurricane.



  1. I love the book Lemonade and other poems. One of my library treasures. I have another book in my catalogue Annika Rizz maths wiz which is about selling lemonade. I once saw one of those little stands - it was in Nantucket and I just smiled and smiled having reading about lemonade stands for years in American books. Sadly again I don't have many of the other titles you have listed but I do like the idea of this celebration.

  2. Thanks for that. I have Annika Rizz, but unlike you I haven't read it. The book you have is definitely the pick of them. The rest are for a very young audience.
