Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—Another celebrity-authored book about manners. Princess-obsessed Ruby receives a card inviting her to have tea on Sunday with the Queen. As she rushes to tell everyone about her forthcoming engagement, family members, teachers, and friends remind her to adhere to various social graces such as saying "please" and "thank you," not interrupting, and chewing with her mouth closed. The story is simple and clever, and not at all didactic. Glasser paints Ruby as an impetuous, rosy-cheeked girl with a creative imagination and lots of charm. The playful drawings depict an excited Ruby shouting and pushing to tell everyone her news while imagining herself as a proper young lady wearing frilly gowns in elaborately drawn palace settings. Even the lettering for "The Queen" becomes increasingly ornate as Ruby's anticipation grows. She's not disappointed when her hostess turns out to be Grandma. This book will fill a need for girls who can't get enough books about princesses in pink.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT

Format: Hardcover
Young Ruby is a bit of a disaster. She doesn't mean to be, it's just that she believes fingers were made before forks. So, it's easy for food not only to wind up in her mouth but also in her hair. She doesn't have much use for napkins, and she talks with her mouth full.

Nonetheless, she is adorable and absolutely over the top when she receives an invitation to have tea with the Queen. Obviously, Ruby's manners need some polishing before sitting down with her majesty. So, everyone who knows her has a bit of advice- "Ruby, I hope you won't interrupt...I hope you'll sit up straight...I hope you won't shout," etc. All of this is a great deal for her to absorb.

Finally, the big day arrives. Young readers will be surprised at what it's like to have tea with the Queen.

Robin Preiss Glasser's illustrations are irresistible, filling every page with color. She's a generous illustrator and exuberantly captures all of Ruby's preparations.

I purchased this book simply because I love Robin Glasser's illustrations but I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the story. Its a sweet story that speaks to the wonderful relationships between grandmothers and granddaughters. I have purchased two more for birthday gifts.

I put this on my daughter's holiday wish list and one of her Aunts got it for her. She loves Fancy Nancy and the cover reminded me of that book. The art work is amazing, the colors so pretty and fun. The plot, simply a little girl so excited to have been invited to have tea with the Queen that she is compelled to tell everyone and anyone, no matter what is happening. As she shares her exciting news in school, on the playground, in dance class and to her family, she commits a series of socail snafus; she talks with her mouth full, she interrupts, she is too loud, etc. She is reminded to have good manners when she has tea with the Queen. At the end she learns that her own grandmother has invited her to have tea, what a special treat. The book really illustrates how young children see the world revolving around them and nothing else and serves to teach its readers that manners are important. There is a lot of repetition in the text which works well for my 2 1/2 year old daughter who after just a few reads already knows much of the book by heart. Fancy Nancy is still her favorite but she really likes Ruby too.

Ruby received an invitation in the mail, but it's not just any invitation. The postman brings an invitation for Ruby to have tea with...The Queen!

Understandably, Ruby is very excited. She is so excited, in fact, that she tells everyone she knows, actually everyone she sees, "I have been invited to have tea with...The Queen!" Apparently, Ruby's acquaintances already know a great deal about her and admonish her in a number of ways to be polite, mind her manners, and so forth.

The day finally arrives when Ruby is to have tea with the Queen. Ruby awakens and is very excited. There is, however, a very pleasant surprise in store for Ruby. Of course, Ruby is a perfectly wonderful little lady while having tea with the "Queen."

Nicely illustrated and simply written, `Tea For Ruby' is a pleasant little story about something to which a little girl looks forward and how a young lady should behave in a social situation. The repetition is fun for the young reader - or listener, and the moral is straightforward and useful.

I love the illustrations in this book and my 3-year-old daughter has requested it every night since we bought it. However, I find it a little sad that the energetic little girl in the book repeatedly has her excitement squashed by adults wagging their finger at her about manners. Ok, I get the point, it's about learning how to behave properly, but come on! Let the poor kid be excited!

This book teaches girls about good manners with elegant illustrations - I've enjoyed reading it with my daughter tremendously. Young Ruby is invited to have a tea party with the Queen and she must show up with her best manners. The theme of tea party makes this book such an attractive read and little ladies will learn tea manners such as not to interrupt, wait for one's turn, dress properly, say "please", welcome people and don't talk with one's mouth full... and in the end it turns out that the Queen is actually Ruby's grandma and this lovely lesson hits home that we can always use our best manners when we enjoy extraordinary moments with people we know for truly each girl is a princess within the family.
