Children's Tea Books

I have a variety of children's books about tea — 36 for now ;-). I love them all, and read them with the grandchildren whenever possible. We no longer have babies in the family. The youngest celebrated his 4th birthday earlier this month and has informed me on several occasions that he is a "big boy." The books below are board books the children have outgrown, but I still enjoy the stories and the artwork.

From A Tiny Tea, a Harvest House Publishers Book:
Tiny cups and tiny treasures
Teatime brings such tiny pleasures.
So won't you come and sit with me,
And share a tiny pot of tea?
I will be sharing more children's tea books from my collection during the next several posts. Bring a cup of tea and we can have a tea party together!

I loved that bit about your grandson...it reminded me of the other day when I was at the beauty shop and the other stylist was cutting a little boy's hair. The little boy was very talkative and was talking about all of his electronic games...he mentioned one and said he played with it "when he was a kid." the stylist asked him how old he was and he said I'm six but that was when I was three...you better believe we all got a nice chuckle out of that one.

Hope you are having a marvelous day!♥

Love the photos at Halloween, Paula! They would like this book. Ruby doesn't want to share her tea party with Max, but he is too tricky for her!
