Book 2, The Little Lemonade Stand, continues with the financial adventures of the main characters - Tessa and Benji. As the twins sell lemonade to their thirsty neighbours, they learn that earning money can require hard work but can also be very rewarding.
Tessa and Benji make lemonade and set up a lemonade stand which includes a printed sign with the price of a cup of lemonade as well as a coin bowl for neighbours to deposit their money. Once the pitcher is empty they count their proceeds before storing them in their piggy banks.
