These are some very entrepreneurial kids! The story, told from the perspective of the second-grade treasurer and reporter, is humorous and full of the details and perspective of an elementary child. Fair warning, that the varied entrepreneurial endeavors do get a little long so this is probably best suited for elementary age children with a little longer attention span, who are probably the best audience for the humor anyway.
