When Grandma Gives You A Lemon Tree

Amazon.com Rating:

"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." In this imaginative take on that popular saying, a child is surprised (and disappointed) to receive a lemon tree from Grandma for her birthday. After all, she DID ask for a new gadget! But when she follows the narrator's careful — and funny — instructions, she discovers that the tree might be exactly what she wanted after all.

This clever story, complete with a recipe for lemonade, celebrates the pleasures of patience, hard work, nature, community... and putting down the electronic devices just for a while.

Description

"The second-person text covers appropriate and inappropriate reactions and then advises readers to accept the potted present politely and wait for Grandma to leave or take a nap. Then you definitely shouldn’t: drop it from a bridge, send it aloft with balloons, or 'play ding dong ditch' with it (all illustrated with wry understatement).... After nearly a year of caring for her reluctantly received sapling, the protagonist joyously picks her lush lemons, and Grandma even returns to help make some fresh lemonade, the sale of which leads to more plants for her burgeoning garden. Rocha’s colors and characters leap right off the page, encouraging readers to get out into the world and create life, beauty, and some great-tasting lemonade (recipe included)." — Kirkus Reviews
