Emma Buttersnap is throwing a special tea party, and there's so much to do before the guests arrive. From creating the invitations and the menu to buying and preparing the finger foods and tea, Emma hasn't a minute to spare.
Young children love to play tea party, and now Emma Buttersnap can show them how to plan the perfect affair. This interactive book introduces children to the origins of tea, one of the world's favorite beverages. The text combines interesting facts (in the eighteenth century, ladies used to carry their own teacups to parties in special cases) with historical anecdotes (the Earl of Sandwich invented the sandwich to keep his fingers from getting greasy when playing cards). Craft projects and delicious recipes, which children can try with the help of an adult, are also included. Add Linda Bronson's gorgeously detailed illustrations and you get the perfect book for teatime--or any time!
