When Caroline watches her disabled friend Shannon struggling with an old, rusty, squeaking, and wobbling wheelchair, she decides to use her grandmother's secret recipe to make and sell lemonade to raise money for a brand-new wheelchair. When the neighborhood kids see Caroline trying to help, they choose to pitch in, too. Some kids look for spare change, while others start a carwash. Seeing the difference all the children make inspires Caroline's grandmother to organize a sponsored paddle race down the river, which gets them enough money to buy Shannon the best new wheelchair available.
This inspiring book engages kids in charity and shows them the value of helping others in fun and creative ways. Like the ripples made in a river, one act of kindness can ripple out through the community and make a real impact on a person's life. Proceeds from the sale of The Lemonade Ripple benefit the Foundation for Community Betterment.
