My good friend, Shannon, recently released her second children’s book, The Lemonade Stand. Once again, I had the pleasure of working with her on the book. Beautifully illustrated by the talented Aaron Kizer, it tells the story of two boys who find a toy they want RIGHT NOW. Thankfully, they are friends with Lauren and Taylor who help the boys find a way to earn money to save, spend and share.
In honor of The Lemonade Stand, I whipped up a pitcher of lemonade, but not just any lemonade. Oh no. Lauren and Taylor approved lemonade. This recipe is delicious, and I can see why Lauren and Taylor’s lemonade stand is so popular in their neighborhood.
I hate it when my ice melts and dilutes my lemonade, so I made lemonade ice cubes. To make them fancy, I put blueberries in the ice cube tray before adding the lemonade. You could also substitute strawberries, raspberries, lemon wedges or even fresh mint.
To celebrate the release of Shannon’s new book, she is giving away an iPad Mini. Look for the entry form and details after the recipe.

Help us celebrate the release of The Lemonade Stand and join Shannon in her mission to increase financial literacy in both children and adults.
“Everyone handles money. Unfortunately, not everyone does it with confidence. Money has long been a taboo topic in many homes, which makes it even harder for parents to know where to start or what to teach. So I created a series of children books to help parents ease into these important conversations. Financial literacy is one of the most loving gifts you can give your children, and I encourage you to make money conversations a priority in your home.”
The giveaway runs from July 14-31, 2014 and is open worldwide.*
