Book Review Of “The Startup Squad” By Brian Weisfeld And Nicole C. Kear @Imprintreads @MacKidsBooks @thestartupsquad

Girls mean business in a brand-new middle grade series about friendship and entrepreneurship!
All the great leaders had to start somewhere. And Theresa (“Resa” for short) is starting with the lemonade stand competition her teacher assigned to the class―but making it a success is going to be a lot harder than Resa thinks.
The prize: line-skipping tickets to Adventure Central. The competition: Val, Resa’s middle school nemesis. And the biggest obstacle to success: Resa’s own teammates. Harriet is the class clown, Amelia is the new girl who thinks she knows best, and Didi is Resa’s steadfast friend―who doesn’t know the first thing about making or selling lemonade. The four of them quickly realize that the recipe for success is tough to perfect―but listening to each other is the first step. And making new friends might be the most important one…
The back of each book features tips from the Startup Squad and an inspirational profile of a girl entrepreneur!

Thank you to MacMillan Children’s Books/Imprint Reads for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

While my daughter herself didn’t read this book, she inspired this review. When she was growing up, and even now she has always been thinking of things to create/make/sell. Right now she has an Instagram page (pictured above) featuring all of her makeup creations, as she is aspiring to be a Makeup Artist. She is a little go-getter. Whether it’s doing make-up for her friends, or their parents, or her countless babysitting gigs, she is just like the girls in this book. Driven.

So flipping through this book, and reading it aloud to her little brothers was a lot of fun. Both my boys really enjoyed this book. They are a little younger, so we only read a chapter here and there. But they already have their wheels turning too, and cannot wait to do a Lemonade Stand this summer.

This was a great read, and I think young girls are going to be very inspired, and will come up with some great ideas to become little entrepreneur’s. We were entertained by the right, the chapters were a great length, and I appreciated that this book was very age appropriate. Job well done!
