    Cute book! The kids learned a lot about entrepreneurship. The two year had enough of listening about popcorn and not eating it...so we finished with a bowl of popcorn.

    I loved this book as a kid and had fun rereading it to mine. It's a great primer on running your own business and shows the kids working out problems, dealing with disappointment, finding solutions and feeling proud of doing it on their own. Published in 1961, so there are some annoying gender anachronisms, but the hands-off support offered by the books' grownups is refreshing in an era of parental micro-management. My child said, 'I liked how the grownups talked to them!' Me too.

    Didn't we all read this in the 1970's?

    I picked this one up in a box of used books and read it for the title alone (I am rather popcorn obsessed). It is a very old fashioned children's book, where the children are much more industrious and persistent than most kids I know today (they acquire a 100 pound bag of popcorn kernels and invest in a way to pop and sell the whole of it). Perhaps mothers today are more protective (I wouldn't let the neighborhood kids come in and pop all that corn without some supervision--and indeed they burned a lot of it), or perhaps this story is just impractical in today's world. It almost reads more like fantasy. But it was fun to see retro illustrations and envision all that popcorn!

    I first read this in second grade (year 1982 wow I feel old!) and never forgot it. Good story about kids who try and make money in a time when kids were allowed to be kids and grown-ups understood the importance of acting their age and setting a good example for their children. Similiar to a Henry Huggins story by Beverly Cleary when he found a bunch of boxes full of gumballs and tried to make money selling them to all his friends. Just seeing the cover makes me want popcorn!

    I read this over and over as a kid, probably because I was a slow reader and it's a fast read. I just read it to my kids and they really enjoyed it. It sparked some fun conversations about the basic elements of running a business.
