Tea for Ruby by Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, Robin Preiss Glasser

That Ruby! Wherever she goes, table cloths accidentally pull dishes to the floor, flowers get trampled and spaghetti somehow end up in her hair. You can't take Ruby anywhere! One sunny morning, the postman brings Ruby an amazing invitation to have tea with — the Queen! Ruby had better polish her manners and quickly. Will Ruby really be ready in time?

Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, and Robin Preiss Glasser know a thing or two about the importance of manners and poise and being ladylike. In Tea For Ruby, they have created the irrepressible Ruby, whose antics and foibles with touch readers' hearts as she tries her very best to do things correctly. In the end, she knows she is loved for who she is, and that she will always be a princess, royal or not!

The story line is lacking in substance, which makes the repetitiveness weary. I pump up the story as I read it, and my grandchildren love the book. The drawings are so beautiful and colorful, it makes it appealing to both adults and children. It is the favorite book at Grandma's house.

I saw the Duchess of York talk about this book on the Today Show and loved her thoughts about how manners aren't fussy, but instead show respect for the people around you. Certainly this book, with its fun and funny illustrations, reinforces good lessons, but your children will love it becauase of the title character's exuberance and warm embrace by her family.

I originally got this book free inside a cereal box and my 2 year-old loved it so much we wore out the little paperback. She's almost 4 now and the meaning of the story is becoming more relevant to her so I'm purchasing a hard cover copy to add to her collection of favorites. I discovered the artist is the same one that illustrates for the "Fancy Nancy" series so someday when she's ready for that it will seem very familiar to her already.

This is a great book for little girls who love tea parties. Ruby tells all her friends and family that she is having tea with the queen and as she progresses through the book, she learns what manners to use when she gets to have tea wtih the "queen". It's a nice way to discuss manners and how to be a lady with our little girls. At the end, the Queen turns out to be her grandmother! My little girl and her grandmother have tea parties all the time, so we found this book perfect for the two of them.
