Teatime Reading With Children

Teatime is wonderful for reading and reading is one of the most important and memorable activities we can share with our children. The two lists we’ve compiled here are examples of some of the most popular and beloved teatime stories. We’ve separated them into the classics and into books written with a tea theme.   

Come along inside…  We’ll see if tea and buns can make the world a better place.”
