In Lemonade in Winter Pauline comes up with a creative plan to make a lemonade stand and, together with her little brother, John-John, they undertake what their parents warn them will not be easy. Why? Because it's WINTER! Snow is everywhere! Freezing winds are blowing! Who would buy ice-cold lemonade during the icy cold winter? Where will they get the ingredients? How will they pay for them? Undaunted, they discover the basics of business! Advertise! Decorate! Entertain! Price low enough to attract customers but high enough to make a profit!

EXTRA YARN by Mack Barnett brings a fairy tale touch to MATH and BUSINESS during a Cold, snowy winter, in a frosty little town, white icy coldness all the town around. A girl and her dog, digging in the snow, find a box of yarn with magic that will grow! She knits herself a sweater and when she is all done, there is still some extra yarn, so she makes her doggie one. Is there a bottom in this magic box? Can an pirate steal it away? Read Extra Yarn in our library, And maybe some magic and maybe some magic yarn will unroll and come your way!

What a funny way to introduce potential entrepreneurs to the joys of creating a business and applying math skills! Even as an anticipatory set for older kids, Lemonade in Winter's embedded themes can inspire discussion and extension among all ages.
