The Lemonade Stand Cookbook: Step-by-Step Recipes and Crafts for Kids to Make—and Sell!
Kathy Strahs. Burnt Cheese, $23.95 (130p) ISBN 978-0-9969112-1-4
Cookbook author Strahs (The Ultimate Panini Press Cookbook) offers a blueprint for entrepreneurial kids interested in starting up their own lemonade stand businesses, tackling stand design, advertising, and sales. Recipes are also key, of course, and Strahs includes a baker’s dozen of beverages: “classic lemonade” (along with cranberry and mango versions), a berry smoothie, iced teas, watermelon aqua fresca, and a few cold-weather drinks (cocoa, hot apple cider). Directions for various sweets and snacks are also included, as are packaging and craft ideas. Photographs of (and testimonials from) children appear throughout; a polished design and Strahs’s thorough approach make this a fresh spin on a quintessential summer activity. Ages 7–9. (Booklife)
