Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 5
Genre: picture book
What did you like about the book? Peg and Cat open up a lemonade stand on a hot day wanting to collect marbles. But the Teens think that 10 marbles for 1 cup of lemonade is way too much! Peg lowers the “price” but they still think it’s too much. Finally, Peg lowers it to 2 marbles for 1 cup and the Teens think this is perfect- then they text all their friends. But Peg has a problem- no cups!! She sends Cat on an errand to trade cookies for cups. By the time Cat gets back, its starting to rain and no one wants lemonade anymore.
This is such a good book involving math and problem solving. The illustrations are just like the TV show and everyone will love it!
Anything you didn’t like about it? There is nothing I didn’t like.
To whom would you recommend this book? This is a fun book for kids who love Peg + Cat and for kids who enjoy math and a good challenge. Books in the same series are a read-a-like but also “Wonder Pets” books by Jennifer Oxley.
Who should buy this book? Children’s libraries
Where would you shelve it? juvenile picture books
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? no
