The Toothpaste millionaire

Our family has a tradition since Blake was a wee little lad of reading together most evenings before bed. Of course it doesn't work out every night! We have read some great books including classics like Gentle Ben and Charlotte's' Web to Christan fiction, historical fiction and current kid friendly series. We currently have two reading times, one with the little boys and then later a time for just the older ones. Anyway we talked as a family about sharing our experiences with anyone interested and rate books we read for you (whoever you are!) So the latest book we just finished is The Toothpaste Millionaire by Jean Merrill. Here is our review

Marty 3 1/2 stars - It was a fun and clever way to encourage kids to have an entrepreneurial spirit

Patsy 4 stars - I liked how it taught kids the ins and outs of business in a way they could get into.

Blake 3 stars - I liked how they showed the ways you can make paste and add flavors to it.

Tanner 3 stars - I liked how he made lots of money by only charging a little bit for toothpaste

The reviews are simple and are based on a 5 star rating system!

I LOVED this book when I was a kid. Thanks for bringing it to mind. I'll look for it at the library so I can share it with my kids
