I adored this book. It is about a little girl who is attempting to have a tea party. But to have a proper tea party, you must have guests. Unfortunately, she only has her little brother and the neighbor boys to work with. She attempts to teach them proper tea party etiquette and tries to make them follow the rules. Unfortunately chaos ensues and she uninvites her guests. But then she feels pretty lonely drinking tea by herself. She reinvites her guests, but forgets about rules and simply plays and has a good time with the boys. In the end, the boys invite Julia to their tree fort which is the best way to show their approval.
This book is perfect for the 6-7 year old age range. The illustrations are adorable with plenty of humor including the little brother washing the dog's ears with his sister's toothbrush. For anyone who remembers the frustration of playing with a younger sibling or for children struggling to get along with a younger sibling, this book has a wonderful message about enjoying each other and getting along.
This is not a serious etiquette book. Rather, if Eloise had a little brother, this would be her story.
