Tea for Me, Tea for You by Laura Rador
I usually only review Jane Austen books, or ones related to it (like the Catherine Morland’s Reading List or Non-Austen Reads for Austen Readers for example). But I saw this picture book in the library, read it to my niece, and again I thought it was too cute not to share.
The story begins with the worker at Swinings Tea House bringing in a customer for tea. It starts with one pig, but then keeps growing in numbers until it gets to 10!
It’s a super cute rhyme, but our poor tea host is stressed with planning for this party; until they order the whole menu. Which looks delicious.
My sister said we should make all the recipes, and we have made quite a few already; but I’m up to getting around to that challenge (eventually).
- Cream puffs
- Petits fours
- Gingerbread with custard
- Lemon Tart
- All kinds of cakes and cookies
- Molasses Crisps
- Sliced egg
- Melted cheese with tomato on toast
- Smoked Salmon on Brown Bread
It’s an adorable read that kids in a wide range of ages will enjoy. It’s also perfect for kids who like tea, or for children you are trying to influence into liking tea.
