When Grandma Gives You a Lemon Tree, Hardback Book


When Grandma gives you a lemon tree, definitely don't make a face!

Care for the tree, and you might be surprised at how new things, and new ideas, bloom. "Charms from cover to cover." --Kirkus (Starred review) "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." In this imaginative take on that popular saying, a child is surprised (and disappointed) to receive a lemon tree from Grandma for her birthday.

After all, she DID ask for a new gadget! But when she follows the narrator's careful--and funny--instructions, she discovers that the tree might be exactly what she wanted after all.

This clever story, complete with a recipe for lemonade, celebrates the pleasures of patience, hard work, nature, community . . . and putting down the electronic devices just for a while.
