This book has fun illustrations, and I love the story line. It's so sweet to see the little boy using his money to do nice things for his family, and then the twist at the end is great. :)
I though that this book was really adorable. It was cute, and silly, and had a nice moral and great illustration. All around good.
The little boy wants his doggy so badly, but doesn't have enough money. He wants to save his money, but can't. It is raining and nobody comes to his lemonade stand, he gets sick, then he buys his little sister frozen yogurt, his mother chocolates, and his father tissues. He returns to the store only to find that the doggy is gone! When he returns home, he finds that his parents bought him the doggy to thank him for being so nice.
This is a nice book. The little boy wants the doggie in the window. He doesn't have enough money. He tries to raise the money with a lemonade stand. He gets sick. Instead he uses his money to help his sister, mom an dad. At the end of the book his mom and dad surprise him and buy the dog for him. Wonderful book.

I have been reading this book ever since its publication! It was a favorite of my daughter's while she was growing up and is now a favorite one to read at all story times! Great story and whimsical illustrations make this classic nursery rhyme a keeper!

This book has good illustrations...they make it easy for my students to look at and retell or make up their own story. It can also be used for sequencing days of the week.
Three things about this book:
2) Selling lemonade in the rain. What a boss.
3) The dog is juggling on page 11!
This is my all-time favorite book growing up! I made my parents read it to me every night!
One of my favorite childhood songs, with several new verses that teach a great moral.

If only I could remember this tune from page to page! Geesh!
Very fun to read to and sing along with the kids. :)
It is in a song format. The students will love this book!
