A Dollar For Penny

On a beautiful summer day a young girl sets up a lemonade stand. Her first cup sells for one penny, but then she realizes she can charge more - 2 cents, maybe even 5. And some kindly customers are willing to pay even more! She puts each coin into her big glass bank, totaling a dollar in sales by the end of the day. Told in rhyme, this delightful story combines the teaching of addition with a traditional rite of childhood entrepreneurship!

This level 2 book from the Step Into Reading series is perfect for emerging readers.

"The jaunty rhymed text is illustrated with happy watercolor artwork that fills the pages. The money message is emphasized by the pictures of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters dotting the spreads. The last page once again shows drawings of the coins and how five pennies equal a nickel, two nickels equal a dime, etc." -- Ilene Cooper, Booklist
