Sophie Washington and her friend Chloe have many needs, as most eleven-year-olds do. Chloe wanted some new leggings while Sophie wanted a puppy and to get her mom a bracelet for her birthday. The girls decided that they must take their destiny into their own hands by starting a business. So what was their choice for an ideal business venture? A lemonade stand. In Sophie Washington: Lemonade Day by Tonya Duncan Ellis, young readers will learn that with creativity, persistence, and ingenuity they can become kid entrepreneurs. To jumpstart their ideas, the girls decided to participate in Lemonade Day, which is a national event with a curriculum that teaches youth financial literacy, setting goals, and team building. Come on this journey with Sophie and Chloe as they learn about the highs and lows of business ownership and learn also about their charitable efforts.
It was a pleasure to read this book because it provides a roadmap of entrepreneurship for young readers. While each business venture is different, the author carefully mapped out some of the nuances kid entrepreneurs will discover during their own journey.
