Summary

Oh, so classic. Oh, so little girl. Drinking from delicate cups, eating dainty finger foods, dressing up in your finery, and being as polite as you can be: that's why everyone loves to come to tea! Throw your own tea party, for birthdays, holidays, or just to have fun with friends. You can even choose a theme to make it extra-special. Start by designing your own invitations and decorations. Then, follow the recipes for making a great cup of tea, simple cucumber and other creative sandwiches, shortbread bars, and more tasty treats. What kind of party are we going to have? A Mad Hatter Tea, Teddy Bear Picnic, Garden Party, Fairy Tea, or one with your dolls or your mom? Plus --crafts, games, boxed hostess tips, and delicious "tea party" quotes from favorite books!

School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-A delightful collection of party ideas, accompanied by colorful, whimsical artwork. Neatly and attractively arranged, the suggested themes include "Princess," "Mad Hatter," "Teddy Bears' Picnic," "Moms and Daughters," "Garden," "Literary," and "Pajama Breakfast" tea parties. All the steps and materials needed for a successful event are addressed: invitations, decorations (outdoor and indoor), place cards, refreshments, crafts, games, and party favors. Recipes are kid friendly, easy to prepare, and well suited to the themes. Along with Emilie Barnes's Let's Have a Tea Party (Harvest, 1997), Tanya Napier's The Totally Tea-rific Tea Party Book (Barron's, 2002), and Lindsey Tate's Teatime with Emma Buttersnap (Holt, 1998), Dunnewind's title is a cheerful, well-written and illustrated book for children and parents to share or for library programming.-Augusta R.
