Lemonade Club

Title: Lemonade club

Bibliographic information: Polacco, P. (2007). Lemonade Club. New York: The Penguin Group

Brief annotation: A young girl finds out she has cancer but with the help of her best friend and their teacher, she has faith that she will be fine.

Genre: Realistic picture book

Grade level: 5th grade

Who will like this: Readers that have cancer or family/friends with cancer. This would be a good book for a teacher who has cancer to use to address the topic to younger students.

Rating: 4 – I thought that this was a very good book. It was very sad but very well written. I know many people that had/have cancer and would have liked this book when I was younger but it also resonated with me today.

Question: Do you know anyone who has/had cancer? How did you/they feel when they found out about it?
