I loved this book as much as my grandchildren did. The rhymes are simple with a nice cadence. The story warms your heart with its simplicity and inclusiveness.
Tanya Glebova illustrated Teddy Bear Tea and did a fantastic job. The pictures are vibrant, colorful, and pop off the page. Her attention to detail add so much to the book.
Included at the end of the book is a page of history and background on the Teddy Bear. I found this addition very informative and relevant to the story.
I highly recommend Teddy Bear Tea to anyone that reads to children, libraries, daycares, and collectors of picture books.
On a sunny summer day, Teddy Bear is planning to have a tea party, and he wants to invite the animals that inhabit the woodland. But how will he spread news of the invitation? When Teddy tells Rabbit about the party, Rabbit, in turn, asks the mysterious human—a child, viewed from behind, wearing an oversized coat, red sneakers, and a wide-brimmed round straw hat—to “Pass the message on.” Does the book the child is holding with illustrations depicting a tea party suggest that the child’s imagination is at work creating Teddy’s party while reading a story about the very same party? At once, the child happily takes up Rabbit’s request:
“I wandered through the wood,
Doing what I could,
To help spread the word,
Until everyone had heard,
Of the Teddy Bear Tea,
Today, at promptly three.”
The party that takes place at Teddy’s tree is a joyful celebration. In attendance is a diverse group—“In colors of black, brown, and tan”—of dapperly dressed woodland animals whose gifts fill the party table with an array of beautifully decorated luscious treats. It’s a blissful occasion honoring the wonder of participating in a respectful community. From its beginning to its satisfying ending, Autumn’s rhyming story tells of the good feelings that sustain genuinely sincere friendships within a loving, multicultural community. Teddy Bear Tea offers adult and child a perfect opportunity to explore the ways the differences as well as the similarities that exist among people can be welcomed, respected, and enjoyed. Glebova’s strikingly colored and cheerful illustrations express the positive feelings of brotherhood and sisterhood that Autumn’s rhymes reveal. The story’s vibrant woodland is an idyllic pastoral haven that thrives on peacefulness and fellowship. The book concludes with intriguing information about the origins of the Teddy Bear, tracing the animal’s appearance to President Theodore’s refusal to shoot a black bear while on a hunting expedition.

(Somewhat of a small thing, but I did like that snakes were included! Too many stories and cartoons make them seem scary and bad, so it's good that a story like this would include them as a list of animals that aren't "bad.")
The included history lesson at the end is fantastic for school teachers who might want to use this colorful lesson on friendship to explore the history of this childhood favorite toy that I'm sure every child has some variation of growing up. Definitely a keeper of a book for any early elementary school readers or nurseries.
I also liked how the author added the brief history of where the teddy bear originated. A very cute naptime or bedtime story.
WHAT I LIKE:
1. A sweet story about friendship
2. Beautifully illustrated
3. A simple story for children to understand
4. Old-fashioned goodness
OVERALL: This is super cute and a good read for any elementary child.

I downloaded a copy upon its release and I was delighted how well it translated to kindle. The text was clear and easy to read. There is a nice touch at the end giving a little bit of history about the creation of the teddy bear. This is a wonderful story to share with a young family.
