The Lemonade Stand Review and iPad Mini Giveaway

Lemonade Stand book and iPad giveaway

I am happy today to be reviewing The Lemonade Stand by Shannon Ryan. The Lemonade Stand is a book aimed at children 4-9 years old and it offers a lesson in financial literacy wrapped up in a cute story line. The Lemonade Stand discusses how to save, spend and share and explains how buying what makes your heart happy is much better than instant gratification.

The Lemonade Stand is easy to read and has illustrations that would keep children of non-reading age entertained. I really like how the book shows kids how to use income minus expenses from their lemonade sale to determine profit. You’re never too young to be an entrepreneur!

Since I have a 7 year old, I though I’d let her share what she learned after reading the book.

“Well, if you want something, it’s better to work together and save your money. Like if you want a puppy, you have to save for a long time, but it’s better than just buying little, junky things at the Dollar Store.”

If you’d like to get a copy of The Lemonade Stand from The Heavy Purse website, I have a coupon code for $3 off. It’s TOUR3114. Now on to the giveaway!

“Everyone handles money. Unfortunately, not everyone does it with confidence. Money has long been a taboo topic in many homes, which makes it even harder for parents to know where to start or what to teach.

Financial literacy is one of the most loving gifts you can give your children, and I encourage everyone to make money conversations a priority in your home.”

  1. My parents never taught me about money. But I teach my children through a variety of methods. The biggest is working for your money and spending wisely, and using saving for things you really want.

  2. My daughter receives an allowance for the frugal items she wants and she has also been adding to a savings account since she was tiny. She definitely appreciates the value of a dollar! Thanks for sharing and good luck to all!

  3. Thanks for the great review, Kim and special thanks to your daughter as well. 🙂 My girls feel the same way, the would rather save for something they truly want than get “junk”. Initially their patience was a little low but they felt on the top of the world when they did achieve a goal, which is an experience that I want them to repeat, again and again.

  4. I’m doing the best I can to teach by example and be open with my children regarding spending, saving and our overall finances. I hide nothing, because my children need to see my mistakes so hopefully they won’t have to learn them the hard way.

    I like the ideas in this book and will look into ordering it today 🙂

  5. My parents taught me about money by explaining the value of savings and frugality to me from the time I was very small.
