Hi ya, everyone! I’m back on Mondays where I belong, but just so you know — Max rules every day in our home. Why? Because I rule! Do you know what else rules? The Lemonade Stand. Mama told me a bunch of people reviewed the book, and I thought it would be nice to get a feline perspective.
So Mama and I sat down together and she read me the book because I can’t read. The story is about these two boys who find some toys they want. Ryan wanted a bouncy ball, which I totally get. Those suckers are fun! Christopher wanted a flashy race car, which I was less enthused about. I don’t like car rides because it always ends at the vet with me getting my nails trimmed or a shot. Ouch!
Anyway, their Mama says “no” to buying the toys for them and they don’t have enough coins to buy the toys themselves. Thank goodness Lauren and Taylor come to the rescue. They help the boys start a lemonade stand to earn money for their toys.
What I loved about the story is that these kids are kid-a-prenuers, just like MaxE is a catpreneuer. So I could relate to their desire to earn money and be independent as I’m sure all kids and cats can. Unfortunately, Mama says I can’t start my own lemonade stand business because I don’t have outdoor privileges (and there was some mumbling about me chasing birdies). But I still learned a lot from the book and when Max’s Pet Sitting Service takes off, I will be sure to save, spend and share my earnings.
I’m gonna save for a deluxe cat tower because those things are awesome. And since I am awesome, it only makes sense that I have one. I’m gonna spend my money on a pet birdie named Yum Yum. And I’m gonna share my money with Mama. First, I gotta repay my start-up business costs of $1, then I’m gonna buy Mama a new pair of flip flops because I am super generous. She loves flip flops and a happy Mama gives MaxE extra treats!
I recommend The Lemonade Stand to all kids and felines. It’s a real good story with an important message. It has really pretty pictures too. Here is my favorite one, minus the puppy! Meow!
Don’t I look at lot like that kitty? I think so. I’m sure I was the inspiration. Mama, why are you rolling your eyes?
