Spring Reads: The Princess Twins and the Tea Party

32 pages; $3.99; Amazon
There is no better time than the present to get your kids into reading with the I Can Read! books, a series that has five different reading levels:

My First - ideal for sharing with emergent readers.
1 - simple sentences for eager new readers.
2 - high-interest stories for developing readers.
3 - complex plots for confident readers.
4 - the perfect bridge to chapter books.

Now available in bookstores from ZonderKidz is the picture book The Princess Twins and the Tea Party by author Mona Hodgson with pictures by Julie Olson.

The Princess Twins and the Tea Party centers on Emma and Abby, twin princess with big imaginations. Princess Emma is excited that today is Spring Tea Day, in which their friends will be coming over to their home for tea.

Everything has to be just perfect for tea party. Princess Emma double-checks to make sure the cakes have enough sugar in them, the table is set correctly and that the perfect tea is going to be used.

Sadly, things don't go as planned, leading Princess Emma to learn a valuable lesson in humility.

Final Thoughts: This book is actually a reprint with pictures from a different illustrator. Despite being published by ZonderKidz, a religious publisher, the story never felt that it was preaching to the reader. The story is pretty simple with Princess Emma wanting everything to be just right for the tea party, but life isn't perfect and she gets upset when something goes wrong. Overall, The Princess Twins and the Tea Party is an adorable, well-written & beautiful illustrated picture book for young readers.
