在美国和澳洲,小孩子也有生意头脑,夏天在街头摆摊卖冰柠檬水,生意真红火!


YOU are never too young to start your own business (生意). In Western countries such as the US and Australia, kids make their own lemonade to sell to people on the street.

They learn a little about running a business, as well as the chance to enjoy a cold drink on a hot day.

Before kids set up stands (架子) on the street, they buy fresh (新鲜的) lemons to make lemonade. They put lemon juice into glasses with ice, sugar and water.

It is important they watch the weather. People will be more likely to visit the stand on warm days.

Smart kids usually find a place with a lot of traffic. Then they set up the stand and put up signs (广告) around the area. The signs tell people where and when the lemonade will be sold. As people go by, the kids call out, "Fresh Lemonade" or "Get your ice-cold lemonade here!"

A small glass might cost 25 cents, while a large one could be about 50 cents. Over the summer, clever sellers can make a total of US$200-300. Many kids give the money away to charities (慈善机构).

Sometimes kids try to compete (竞争) with one another. Are you any good at it? Why not give it a go?
