Tea in Children's Books VI

Welcome to the sixth installation in this series of tea scenes from children's books. Last time, Miss Mary Mack and an elephant drank tea together in Mary Ann Hoberman's Miss Mary Mack; Princess Hyacinth and the boy who saves her with is kite drink tea in Florance Parry Heide's Princess Hyacinth: the Surprising Tale of a Girl who Floated; and we played "I spy" with a page from Richard Scarry's This is My House.

A grandmother and her son, and the cat, too enjoy tea in the garden in Yucky Worms, by Vivian French with illustrations by Jessica Ahlberg.

A little mouse stages a tea to disguise his red ripe strawberry from a hungry bear in The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and The Big Hungry Bear, by Don and Audrey Wood with illustrations by Don Wood.

Who knew dragons drink tea?!  In World Rat Day: Poems About Real Holidays You've Never Heard Of, by J. Patrick Lewis with illustrations by Anna Raff.
