    This is a very funny book about the ups and downs of entrepreneurialship for young children. It discusses the concept of profit and shows how costs can really take away from your bottom line. I love that it shows the children being creative, working together and taking responsibility for raising money for their own trip, even if they got mixed results. Overall, this was a hilarious story and offers a good money lesson, too. We really enjoyed reading this book together.

    This book is about a class of student that went around trying to do a bunch of things for people or to have lemonade stands to get enough money to go to the Statue of Liberty they did so many things. Then the last thing they did is when they were in the principals car it started to roll and was going straight for 2 robbers that were coming out of the bank and pushed them right into the back and they got arrested and the school got 8,200 dollars just for that. But the officer said it might take a [...]

    My favorite thing about this book was all of the possible activities that could be prompted from it. For one, students could write about a monument of some sort that they would like to visit and why. They could also create a budget for a trip, which would practice their math skills along with their imaginations. In addition, the class could collectively come up with a goal (contributing to a charity, helping someone in need) and then fundraise as the children in the book did to meet their goal.

    Themes: Money/Business/Field tripThis is too long for storytime."The class tries to earn money for a field trip. Susan Olson, second-grade treasurer and reporter, here dutifully records the comical details that surround this adventurous tale under the headings, "Expenses" and "Profit"." -

    I would not recommend this book to my students, nor have it in my classroom bookshelf. I thought the story as a whole was pointless. There is a bit of humor at the end because the way they get the $8,200 is from robbers. However, in all I think this book was poor and I am surprised it was published.

    This book is a funny and engaging book that introduces money(bills). A group of children in second grade get together to raise $8,205.50 to go on a gield trip to the Statue of Liberty. This book would go perfectly with a math lesson on money. This book is a bit challenging, concept-wise, so it would be better for older grades, 2nd-4th. This book does an excellent job using real-life examples which would provide text-to-self and text-to-world connections for the students, and it also does a great [...]

    When reading this book in Social Studies class, this book was an interesting book to read. It talks about how the 2nd graders are trying to raise money and it goes through each activity that they do to raise money and how much money they make (profit) and how much money they have to pay to pay for supplies. The end of the book is not how you expect it to end, but it has a very cute and good ending to it. This is a good book for children to read and to introduce economics to students. I am defini [...]

    Love this book. The kids in second grade has numerous plans to raise the money to visit the Statue of Liberty. But they all go slightly awry and do not net the amount of money intended. A fun way to look at profit and loss. It contains real life lessons that relate to fundraising and running a small business. The hilarity of the book makes the lessons easy to appreciate and the twist at the end gets them to NYC.

    This book should accompany lesson plans to help children connect to the idea of recording profit and expenses. With this book, teachers can show students why adding and subtracting, and solving problems are important to them. This book could also accompany language arts lesson plans to enhance reading and writing, vocabulary, sequencing, organizing and synthesizing. This book will be in my classroom library for use from Pre-K - 5 grades.

    The second grade class tries to raise enough money for a class visit to see the Statue of Liberty. They have really good ideas for how to raise money, but something always happens to make their profits either low or nothing. One wonders toward the end of the book how they'll ever raise the $8,000+ mentioned in the title. But they do--in a very unexpected way. Filled with humor, this book should amuse.

    Loved this book. Class going on a field trip to Stature of Liberty. Written from perspective of student bookkeeper. Details expenses and profits. Multiple failed attempts to earn money for class trip. Potential accident with dire results actually ends up earning all of the money for the trip. Great story to teach about expenses and profit and saving money for a reason.

    I love this story and this book would be best used during a mth lesson. This book is filled with math vocabulary words that students could appreciate. I also think this is a great book to explain adding, subtracting and learning how to save money. I would recommend parents and teachers to use this book.

    Economics Topic: Profit Grade K-3This book discusses a group of children who imbark on numerous projects to raise money for a second grade field trip. Each project involve expenses, earnings and a profit. This a great story that can teach young children a valueable economics lesson while entertaining them at the same time.

    A class of second graders trying to raise money for a class trip goes through one failed fundraiser after another until something extraordinary happens. The story was interesting if a bit ridiculous!

    Unfortunately, I really do not understand the point of this book. Yes, I get that they are trying to make money for a school trip to New York City, but the ending? That would never actually happen. I definitely did not like this book at all! I would never recommend it to anyone.

    This book does a lot of explaining and may be to much for children under third grade. This book discusses expenses, and profits with many different problems For example profit from a lemonade stand or babysitting and dog-walking! It gives children real life examples!

    This book could be used to deal with math because it touches on money and counting. It's a community building book because it shows how a grade came together to do something fun. It even touches on economics as it discusses profit and expenses.

    This is a nice informative picture book. I would use it for 3rd-5th grade. I think that this book may be a little challenging for younger age groups, but is just right for the older grades. This book would be great to introduce economic terms.

    This book helps students understand the adding and subtracting of money. I think a lesson on money word problems would be a great follow up activity for this book.

    Great book to read to second graders. The story is fun but very educational. This book introduces children to the use of money. Children will learn about profit and loss, fundraising, and economics.

    In this book a group of students works to come up with creative (though not always successful) ways to earn money for a school field trip.

    Good way to talk about profits and economics. The class is trying to raise money for a field trip-my students can relate to this.
