Monday’s post was all about preparing tea and how to have a fun-filled tea party. Today I am bringing you some picture and middle grade books whose theme’s are TEA PARTIES.
- TEA PARTY RULES by Ame Dyckman, Illustrated by K G Campbell, is a delightful tale of a bear who wants to come to a little girls tea party. But, he has a hard time following all her rules.
- MISS SPIDER’S TEA PARTY by David Kirk. The title tells it all in this unique “spin” on the tea party genre.
- FANCY NANCY TEA PARTIES by Jane O’Connor, illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser. Nancy at her word-licious best presenting the ins and outs of a tea party.
- THE BOSTON TEA PARTY by Russell Freedman, illustrated by Peter Malone.
5. A soon-to-be-released book by Marissa Moss (Abrams) is titled AMERICA’S TEA PARTIES. This non-fiction book for middle grades tells of not just the famous Boston Tea Party, but also three others that took place in Philadelphia, Charleston, and New York. Here’s the link to pre-order a copy: http://www.abramsbooks.com/product/americas-tea-parties_9781419718748/
6. Finally, my own MG historical WHEELS OF CHANGE features a pivotal scene where the heroine Emily hosts her first tea party. Two of the guests include her nemesis – Beatrice Peabody – and her insufferable, and opinionated mother. Emily is doing fine serving tea to the guests until Mrs. Peabody voices her opinion regarding Henry – a beloved employee of Emily’s Papa. This is the moment when Emily discovers an unconventional use for tea.
Wheels of change is available at Amazon or bookstores nationwide. ISBN: 978-1-939547-13-2
