    This review was written for The Great Lemonade Stand Stand-Off.
    We found The Great Lemonade Stand Standoff by Art Rainer to be inspirational, laugh-out-loud funny. One of the characters wore a tie on his head. Some parts were gross and had us squealing. In this 10-chapter book the premise is 2 Corinthians 9:7 that speaks on giving cheerfully. The give, save, live pattern is a great goal in life. It taught the importance of how you use your money. It is inspiring readers to look and meet needs around them. There's good guys and bad guys and it's a fun way to share a concept through a fictional venue. My kids loved the rocket car and illustrations. This is book 1 and we plan to read more in this series.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    teaches about giving

    This review was written for The Great Lemonade Stand Stand-Off.
    This book is part of a three-part series designed to teach kids ages 6-9 about money choices. Each of the books focuses on one aspect of the Master's Money Plan: Give, Save and Live. The Great Lemonade Standoff , Book One, is about giving.

    Three friends, Jake, Sophia and Brody help a classmate raise money for a pet shelter. Included in the plot is a visit to an underground world where they become secret agents to help save their friends from becoming Albies (Albies are under the control of Albatross, who wants them to make bad money choices, and are recognizable by a stinky smell) and a lemonade stand battle. The key Bible verse is 2 Cor. 9:7. Other Christian references are subtle, primarily capital letters for Master and pronouns referring to God. The book ends with a money challenge that encourages the reader to action by giving something away.

    My children (ages 6 & 7) have not been exposed to sci-fi type books before, so the other-world, secret agent aspect made the book confusing to them. I'm sure other kids would find it more interesting. I like the concept of the Masters Money Plan; the presentation just didn't fit our family well. The reading level seems appropriatemy seven-year old could read the book with help on some of the bigger words.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher (B&H) in exchange for my review.

    This review was written for The Great Lemonade Stand Stand-Off.
    Life changes when three friends Jake, Sophia and Brody, sniff a bad smell at school. Through the mysterious Agent G. B., they discover they are in danger of being taken over by the Albatross and turned into Albies. Besides being selfish and not wanting to help others, Albies also smell bad! The three friends can save themselves if they become secret agents and complete a mission to help their classmate, Drew, before the Albies get him.

    This spy tale will tickle children's imaginations with lots of action including the secret world at the end of the rocket slide, along with the many ways the Albies try to stop the mission from being successful.

    In addition to being a cute story, this book also teaches money management using the principles of Give, Save, and Live--on a child's level. Questions at the end of the volume help kids think about real life ways to put these ideas to work. On his blog, the author has lots of great information about this topic for children and adults alike.

    This is book one in the Secret Slide Money Club series, with more adventures, and lessons to learn in upcoming storiesall from a Christian point of view. This 5-star story would be enjoyed by children who can read through tweens.

    This review was written for The Great Lemonade Stand Stand-Off.
    This silly book is the first one of The Secret Slide Money Club Series. It teaches kids about giving in a fun way. Three kids become secret agents and have to outsmart Albatross, who turns kids into stinky Albies who hate to give and try to stop others from giving. When their lemonade stand is attacked, they must fight back and figure out a way to raise money to help a classmate give to a good cause.

    This looks like a fun adventure series, teaching children about giving. It is a chapter book and therefore good for young readers.

    (Please Note: Although this book was given to me to review by B&H and Lifeway, the opinions expressed are my own.)
