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.
