Wonderful engaging read This 89 page book is probably confusing to those in marketing The 22 chapters are very brief but it's not a beginning chapter book It's middle grade although some of the topics may be on the high school level I think only advanced junior high kids would grasp some of the business conceptsThe voice is absolutely perfect a sixth grade girl who is very bright though not exceptionally so very honest and not very street wise The short paragraphs work really well here which is not always the case It reads a lot like a student essay though a bit informalThere is some early 1970s social thinking that seems perhaps a bit too contrived the girl is white the boy is black and they think nothing of this although it is explicitly stated that others do But it's presented in such an appealing and humorous way that this does not feel like an issues book I appreciated the little poke at women's lib Mr Perkell says you have to have a woman on a Board of Directors these days and how the next sentence shoots that down The illustrations by Jan Palmer make me think of what Trina Schart Hyman would do if the wind weren't constantly blowing in her world I think I must know Palmer from something else but I'm not sure what right now

As part of UMHB's READ 3307 I read The Toothpaste Millionaire This is a fun and educational story that will catch older readers attention and help them gain interest in new topics like economics and inventions The story follows Kate a 6th grader and her friend Rufus who is a genius Rufus has formulated a type of toothpaste because he is outraged at the cost of the toothpaste available in stores The book is about how he markets and sells his toothpaste and the expansion of his business which he runs by himself with the help of some of his friends Though it's certainly not typical for a middle schooler to start their own company it is certainly possible which is why this book can be classified as contemporary realistic fiction This book challenges children to think outside the box and achieve than what is normally expected of them The theme of setting high personal goals is increasingly relevant because children need to learn to be self motivators if they are to be successful In the story Rufus builds his business up with very little adult influence and it was entirely his own idea His company starts small but you'll have to read the story to find out just how big it gets
