Sluggers' Car WashBook - 2002
The 21st Street Sluggers have a problem: Their team T-shirts are worn-out and dirty. They need new ones, but they have no money. How can they raise some? A car wash!
The team gets to work. Lilly is scrubbing, Julia is squirting, Will is polishing, and CJ is kicking back and counting the dollars and cents. Pretty soon everyone is wet and tired -- except for CJ. But his teammates have a surprise in store for the master of the cash!
Learning how to count money and make change are important real-life math skills -- but teamwork is the most valuable player in this sports story.
