The Great Lemonade Stand Standoff by Art Rainer–Book Review

This book is the first in the “Money Club” series.  Three friends, Jake, Sophia and Brody find themselves in a “stinky” situation due to poor financial choices.  After Agent G.B. invites them to become Secret Slide Money Club members, they are invited to redeem their selfish decisions.

They learn that the Master’s Money Plan is simple:  GIVE–SAVE–LIVE.  Give first, then save, and finally use what is left over to live.  Agent G.B. also gives them a verse to guide them:

“Each person should do as he has decided in his heart–not reluctantly or out of compulsion, since God loves a cheerful giver.”  2 Corinthians 9:7

They meet with adventures, challenges and temptations in order to accomplish their first mission:  helping their classmate, Drew, meet his goal to raise money for the local pet shelter.

Elementary age students will enjoy this humorous story as they establish a valuable foundation on which to build a lifetime of stewardship (they’ll get a bit of math as well!).  The book includes a money challenge so that the reader can put these lessons into practice.  There is also a “sneak peek” of the next book in the series.

VERDICT!  Well done.  I give it 5 stars, and it will be appearing in our Little Free Library very soon!
