This delightful book is one of my favorites. It encourages creativity for children and the adults in their lives. My teenage daughter and her friend enjoyed a "Teddy Bear Tea", making placemats, dragging out stuffed animals, and preparing special foods to share with each other. I've bought an extra copy to tuck away in case I ever have a grandchild to share it with!

I've had this book since I was very small (when it just came out) and I loved it! I was going through some old stuff in may basement about a week ago and found it, and BOOM! Rushing back came all these memories. this is a great book, especially if you are a slightly romantic six- year- old. It's a wonderful sort-of hands-on type thing, and my book still smells slightly of cloud cookies. :)

The art work is beautiful, the tea party's creative and the recipes easy to follow. A treasure for anyone who wants to share a tea party with someone special... like a granddaughter.

I've been looking for this book for quite awhile and thank goodness for Amazon, it's always my source for treasures and ideas. My grand-daughter and grandson live far away, but I cherish our tea parties and envision us playing together with all the highlights in this book. It brings back the wonderful times of fun-play and their interactions are priceless in my heart when I miss them the most. The nostalgia I recall even as a child playing with my sister, continue to bond and children's books have a way of making gloomy days happy all over again!

for someone who was raised on tea parties and wanted to step it up into a regal event for her own daughters, this book is IT. It tells you every aspect of a themed tea party from food to serve to crafts to make.I have just bought my third copy for another little girl in my family. No daughter should grow up without a wide variety of tea parties
