That evening I took a rag and wiped the mower down, parked it in a corner of the garage and-a little admission here-patted it on the top of the gas tank. As I bent over, the wads of bills cracked in my pockets.

by Gary Paulsen (Author), Tom Parks (Reader). Best book ever please make the book in all was a good short book that faces a 12 year old boy that his lawn mowing business is getting the threat of getting frozen or worse.

Or as normal as anything had been this summer. The rain had stopped and the grass dried. I rode my little mower over to Arnold's to check the notebooks to see where the jobs were. I rode my little mower over to Arnold's to check the notebooks to see where the jobs were ing pretty much took care of itself. Everybody knew where to go, what to do. Well. It's a good crew-they know what to do. It's the best kind of business. Everybody is happy, everybody makes money and the lawns get good care. Speaking of knowing what to do-did you talk to your parents last night?.

Narrated by Tom Parks. That's when my twelfth summer got really interesting.

One day I was twelve years old and broke. I set out to mow some lawns with Grandpa’s old riding mower. One client was Arnold the stockbroker, who offered to teach me about: the beauty of capitalism. Supply and demand. Diversifying labor. Distributing the wealth. “It’s groovy, man,” Arnold said.

The grass grew, and so did business. Arnold invested my money in many things. One of them was a prizefighter. All of a sudden I was the sponsor of my very own fighter, Joey Pow. That’s when my twelfth summer got really interesting.

Lawn Boy was one of a number of Summer reading books chosen for reading by our 10 year old prior to 6th grade; a grade or two above or below would be this book's target audience based on content and reading level.
Lawn Boy deals with the story of an unnamed 12 year-old's birthday gift of a used lawn mower and how a series of interactions while mowing lawns allows the boy to parlay his mowing money into a small fortune. The economic concepts are sound and relatable - if not a bit unbelievable in how they all pan out - but overall, Gary Paulsen writes a fun, quick reading book that both my boy, and I, enjoyed. A minor nitpick, this book does have the main character dealing with some issues in some questionable ways (having a business foe beaten up, hiring undocumented labor, paying off-the-books, etc.) but its themes, lessons and viewpoints speak well to a tween or early teenager. The content does not contain anything any reasonably unsheltered kid would be put off by.

I am an 8th grade business technology teacher. The book is intended for 5-6th grade. However, this is a true gem of a book that can be made relevant to a diverse audience from all backgrounds and almost all ages. I loved reading the book as an adult. It is an interesting, inspiring, and easy read. It can be applied to so many real life scenarios, the opportunities are more than plentiful! I am glad I picked up this book and will have a smile on my face every time I look at it on my shelf. Don't hesitate to get this book - it's worth it!

Not only I am a public school teacher, I also do marketing and sales. I work with cultural institutions in my community. I always encourage young people to own businesses such as baby sitting, walking dogs, hairdressing, mowing lawns, etc. In today's economy a person can not depend on one livelihood. I strongly believe from elementary we should encourage our young people to own businesses and work hard; so they can pursue their dreams.

Gary Paulsen, as an author was recommended to us by my son's fifth grade teacher. After reading "Mudshark" on his own, I was intrigued to find other books by this author. I came across "Lawn Boy" which appealed to both my son and I after his interest in starting his own business. This was a great read. We laughed, we talked about business on a level far above 5th grade, and even got some math practice in! Would recommend this book, and this author to anyone having trouble getting your child 'into' reading.

I have watched a student read this book in one sitting. How was it able to hold his attention? It was interesting because a kid his own age is able to make money from a little lawn mower. It made him think to himself, "How does he do that?" It made me curious about how I might go about starting his own business. One criticism: longer chapters and more detail would make the book more entertaining.

PAULSEN'S "LAWN BOY" AND HIS AUTOBIOGRAPHY "HOW ANGEL PETERSON GOT HIS NAME" KEPT ME IN STITCHES AND I'M IN MY 60'S.

PAULSEN DELIVERS A VERY FUNNY STORY BASED ON UNUSUAL CHARACTERS THAT A YOUNG TEEN MEETS WHEN HE TRIES TO EARN MONEY MOWING LAWNS.

I ALWAYS RECOMMEND PAULSEN'S BOOKS FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS. HIS BOOKS ARE PARTICULARLY APPROPRIATE FOR YOUNG BOYS AND TEENS. THE CONTENT IS SOLID, FAST PACED AND CONTAINS LIFE LESSONS.

Boys Love it. Great Read. Entertaining, Great for all ages. Will buy more from this Author.
My son just hates reading. It's the bane of his existence. When book reports are assigned it's all out war. He does the whole page count thing to try and get away with the least amount of reading possible. This book fit the bill. His teacher gave it his approval, it wasn't too long and best of all, my son actually enjoyed it. Now he wants to get the sequel. For anyone who is fighting the same battle, I recommend this book for their son as well. The author, Gary Paulsen, has a wide range of other books that suit tween boys and we will be looking for more in the future.
