Ellie travels to New York, China, Italy, and much more places to make she gets all the right items for her lunch date with Royalty. Readers will be surprised to find out the identity of the Queen.
The Queen is Coming to Tea is an excellent tool for young readers to enjoy the wonderful world of make belief. I fell in love with the lively and colorful illustrations in the book.
I remember a few years a teacher talked to me about the importance of children using their imagination. The World of Imagination is where the door of possibilities is opened up for a child. That is very important to a child’s cognitive development.
I would recommend this book for any that take care of children. Parents, Siblings, Teachers, Caregivers can get a few ideas for activities by reading this book.
