Ava's Secret Tea Party

The Tooth Fairy.

Santa Claus.

The Easter Bunny.

The Sandman.

Like most kids, Ava wonders if those mysterious nighttime visitors are real or not, so she decides to find out by inviting them all to a tea party.

But, since they're all so busy helping children, how can they actually come?

I don't want to give away the plot, but I will say lots of kids, especially little girls, will love the ending of this story.

They and their parents will also appreciate the recipes included at the end of the book (I can't wait to try one of them myself.) and the craft projects will be fun for kids to make.

This book is charming and fun, and the artwork by Bella Sinclair fits it perfectly.

Ava's Secret Tea Party will be loved by little girls from two to five years old, and maybe by their families, too.

Donna, what a cute "girly" cover - and the story is just perfect.
Congratulations! I added it to my Kid's Book Reveiw board on Pinterest.

Thanks so much for the review! Let me know how you like the recipes. My family had a good time while I worked on them in my 'test kitchen.' :)

Thanks, Margot and Melissa, for the comments.

Donna, I have multiple food allergies so I can't use all the recipes but I'll certainly try the ones I can have and let you know how they are.
