So usually I only review Jane Austen books, or ones related to it (Catherine Morland’s Reading List or Non-Austen Reads for Austen Readers for example). But I saw this picture book in the library and thought it was too cute not to share.
So the story starts with a grumpy queen who hates her cup of tea and sets off to find the perfect cup of tea.
She starts off in Japan meeting a little girl named Noriko, cuddles some kittens, and learns how to make Matcha tea.
Then to India where she meets Sunil and they play ball and make Chai Tea.
After that she journeys onto Turkey where she meets Rana, dances, and makes Turkish tea.
After all her adventures, she heads home where she makes a cup of English tea and thinks.
She then decides to hold a tea party and invites her new friends-having learned that true happiness comes from having someone to share a cup of tea with.
It is such an adorable book and introduces children to fun, friendship, and four different ways of making tea.
