Caterina wants to buy a scooter, so she decides to make a lemonade stand. She plans carefully, makes lists and buys ingredients. When her stand opens she discovers that she has competition. All the other animals are selling lemonade too. She decides she has to make her product unique so she adds a variety of fruit to her lemonade. It works, and she is able to buy the scooter. The book ends with suggestions for young entrepreneurs on how to "stand out". This is a both a cute picture book and a great first introduction to business for the youngest readers.
