Katie and her first dollar and 24 cents

Katie and her first dollar and 24 cents earned by selling pebbles (treasures) in her store.

Katie woudn't give up, she kept asking everyone who came or went from the park, grown-up or kid, even if the didn't speak a lick of English, if they wanted to buy some.

Katie's first dollar

Katie's first dollar earned from strangers. Katie set up a store at the park. She collected pebbles from around the park based on thier interesing colors or patterns, set them up on a bench, and sold them to the other kids. This money was from three pebbles she sold for 90¢; I provided the 10¢ change. The next kid wanted to buy 50¢ worth of pebbles, and Katie "put them on hold" for her while the girl asked her mom. That kid's mom said no. (iPhone 6 Plus.)
