Many of us who collect books on tea enjoy having a few children's books in our collection as well. This week I received one I'd never heard of before from my friend Joanie, "Fairy Tea Party," written by Jamie Michalak and illustrated by Kaori Watanabe.
This 2008 board book is a simple one designed to teach children their colors. On these two pages, for instance, a blue teapot and white teacups are being gathered for a tea party. What a charming way to teach colors!
What I love most about this book, though, is the fun folk art look of the paintings. It's a nice change from the typical cartoon look of most children's teatime books. So if you know a young tea lover, or still feel like one yourself, you may want to check out this delightful book!
