Are you looking for a fun activity for you and your child this summer? Join Ellie as she flies around the world to find the best ingredients for her tea party with the Queen!
One day there was a knock at Ellie’s door. There stood the Queen’s Footman. “A message from Her Royal Highness.” He offered Ellie a note on a silver tray.
May I please come for tea?
The Queen Herself
When Ellie finds out the Queen is coming to tea, she snaps to attention! After all, the Queen deserves the best: cake from Paris, tea from China, lemons from Italy… “Pish posh,” says Ellie. “We can do it!”
But will the Queen patiently wait? And what exactly will be waiting for the Queen?
If you are mom to a girl (or in my case – TWO girls) than you’ve probably been invited to your share of tea parties. It is fun when you are the ‘Queen’ and my kids love that we get to dress up and be silly. It’s a great time for pretend and dress-up and The Queen Is Coming to Tea serves as a great story to establish the great absurdity it is to be a parent and creative interpreter of our children’s imagination. Why not fly to Paris for some lovely croissants? The Queen always expects the best, and we are not willing to disappoint, even if the ‘Queen’ is really a parent. Love this book!
