The BIG Read

The Lemonade War by Jacqueline DaviesLWsign2

Evan Treski is people-smart.
His sister Jessie is math-smart.

Evan Treski is people-smart. He’s good at talking with people, even grownups. His younger sister Jessie, on the other hand, is math-smart—but not especially good at understanding people. She knows that feelings are her weakest subject. With just five days left of summer vacation, Evan and Jessie launch an all-out war to see who can sell the most lemonade before school starts. As the battleground heats up, there really is no telling who will win—and even more important, if their fight will ever end.

Here is a clever blend of humor, math wizardry, and business know-how. As it captures the one-of-a-kind bond between brother and sister, this poignant novel subtly explores how arguments can escalate beyond anyone’s intent.

  1. I am so excited for The BIG Read and our whole school community to be reading the book Frindle. I have read some of Andrew Clements’ books and they are awesome. Looking forward to reading this one!

  2. What a great way to connect our community! I’m looking forward to reading this book again and talking about it with my first graders.

  3. I am already enjoying the book and I hope all of our students and families are too! I can’t wait to read about what Nick does next!

  4. We are loving the book so far! We are only to chapter 3, but the characters are very easy to relate to. My son loves Nicholas and his “unique” personality. I, on the other hand, am a fan of Mrs. Granger. My son’s reaction was “I knew you would like her!” It’s a fun thing for us to discuss. Thanks for doing this.

  5. Oh my goodness! I cannot wait to read about Nick’s report tomorrow! I wonder how he is going to make it ‘special.’ I definitely relate to Mrs. Granger too!!!! It is such a fun read, it is soooo hard to put it down. Andrew Clements has written A LOT of books that are very hard to stop reading!

  6. I really enjoy reading Frindle and answering the questions each morning! I’m really glad we started doing THE BIG READ! I hope all my other classmates and teachers etc. are enjoying it just as much as I am!
