Wrapping up National Poetry Month...
Here's a fun book for the young-hearted tea and poem lovers in all of us! Tea Party Today - Poems to Sip and Savor by Eileen Spinelli and with lively illustrations by Karen Dugan. The book is available hard and soft-covered.
I was impressed by the multi-cultural influences in the book, both in the images of the children and in the poems themselves. An excerpt from Tea Around the World...
"In Ireland tea is cozy.
In Russia tea is strong.
In China tea is served to guests
And sipped the whole day long..."
The rhymes are strong and fun to read out loud. There are plenty of tea adventures to be found - like tea on Noah's ark or tea time with a grouch (who just needs a hug).
I look forward to reading it with my young niece this weekend!
Also, don't miss a very special day tomorrow!! Poem in Your Pocket Day!
