This little collection of tea themed books are geared towards beginning reading. Our Tea Party is a Scholastic book geared to ages 3 - 6 or Preschool-Grade 1. Printed in 1996, it gives a face lift to the Dick and Jane readers! Some tea and cookies? Nancy Shaw's Sheep Out to Eat is just plain fun to read! These sheep have a wild time in a tea room, in rhyme. They munch, they crunch, tea cups smash... oh my! Mr. Putter and Tabby Pour the Tea tells the tale of a lonely elderly man who acquires an equally elderly cat. They eat muffins, pour tea, and enjoy the opera. It's a fun little chapter book that I enjoyed reading to me niece when she was younger. Another Scholastic book, Rabbit's Party tells about birthday party plans. Each of rabbit's 3 friends were to invite 2 more friends, but in the end, they all invited each other and savored a big salad with carrots followed by the favorite, nut cake. Hilda's Tea Party is slightly more advanced reading and features the artistry of the Richard Scarry and all that goes on in that series, including dropped tea cups. It's an adventure!
