Overview

Emma Buttersnap is throwing a special tea party, and there's so much to do before the guests arrive. From creating the invitations and the menu to buying and preparing the finger foods and tea, Emma hasn't a minute to spare.

Young children love to play tea party, and now Emma Buttersnap can show them how to plan the perfect affair. This interactive book introduces children to the origins of tea, one of the world's favorite beverages. The text combines interesting facts (in the eighteenth century, ladies used to carry their own teacups to parties in special cases) with historical anecdotes (the Earl of Sandwich invented the sandwich to keep his fingers from getting greasy when playing cards). Craft projects and delicious recipes, which children can try with the help of an adult, are also included. Add Linda Bronson's gorgeously detailed illustrations and you get the perfect book for teatime—or any time!

An informative look at the history of tea and tea parties presented in the form of a story. Includes recipes.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
Emma wants to tell us all about tea and tea parties. Her great-aunt Prudence, who lives in England, is an expert. She and Emma have tea parties whenever they can. This year the tea party is a birthday party, but Aunt Pru won't tell Emma whose birthday they will be celebrating. What follows are all the necessary preparations for a tea party. A template is included for hand-drawn invitations as well as a list of choices for the menu. Aunt Pru and Emma go to the tea store and talk to Mr. Leaf who knows all about tea. Emma asks him a lot of questions. They make their purchases and head home to brew the tea. The tea set is prepared and finger treats are made. Various recipes for scones, cucumber sandwiches and the like are included. The table is set, and the tea party can begin. Then Emma learns the identity of the birthday girl. This is a delightful book. Beautifully illustrated and very informative, guaranteed to inspire one and all to have a tea party.
Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
To warm up on blustery days you and your child might enjoy a snuggle with Lindsey Tate's Teatime with Emma Buttersnap, an enchanting story and cookbook combined. The tale of Emma and Aunt Pru planning a tea party for family and friends is sprinkled with tidbits of information as tantalizing as the tiny sandwiches they prepare. For example, did you know that tea has been in existence for more than four thousand years? And that in the eighteenth century ladies carried their own teacups to parties in special cases? Menus, recipes, and instructions on table setting are included. Linda Bronson's charming illustrations combine how-to with exuberance.
Kirkus Reviews
There are many manuals on tea and tea parties, but Tate steps out of the lacy tablecloth variety to serve up a tea party within a story, told by the plucky young Emma Buttersnap.
