The Lemonade War

September's Children's Book Club selection was The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies.

This amusing tale about sibling rivalry, friends, enemies, and lemonade stands is a great read for both boys and girls. When Jessie skips grades and ends up in her brother's fourth grade class, the siblings' once unbreakable bond is tested. Evan starts acting distant and Jessie doesn't know what to do. Jessie may be a math whiz but she is awful at figuring people out. It becomes all out war between the brother and sister...a lemonade war.

This month's Book Club pick was very well liked. Our third and fourth grade readers really appreciated the humor in the book, as well as the very relatable emotions that siblings feel. Every kid can relate to running a lemonade stand and every kid can relate to being in a fight with a friend.

September's Children's Book Club selection is Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman. I look forward to seeing you all there!
