How the Queen Found the Perfect Cup of Tea

How the Queen Found the Perfect Cup of Tea


I love finding a book that combines my fave things: children and tea! If you’ve been around a minute you’ll know that I host literary themed tea parties for kids. You can imagine how excited I was to learn that there was a book called How the Queen Found the Perfect Cup of Tea by Kate Hosford and Gabi Swiatkowska that involved a queen wearing a tiara.

Why is  a queen wearing a crown so important? Why else? This gives me a chance to share the book with my friends during a story time video on YouTube. You can’t tell in the video but I’m totally wearing my tutu.


Wasn’t this a great story? The queen learned to make tea AND how to become a friend. I love love love love this book; so many teachable moments.

I have a YouTube channel where I read books to kids; maybe you’ll find a story that you like. Check out An Unconventional Librariantube!

Don’t have time to visit YouTube? No worries, you can check out my videos here on An Unconventional Librarian. Just click over to 070 New Media: Videos.  Let Pammy Pam read to the  kiddos by watching a video or two!

    1. Thanks Rosemary! What’s more fun than having tea while reading? Nothing except maybe cake?

  1. I love, love, love your review and your animated reading with different voices for different characters. (I could learn a lot form you about reading my own book!)

    And of course, I love the tiara, tutu, and teacup. Gabi and I are so grateful to you for this post. Thank you ever so much!

    1. Hi Kate
      Thanks for your kind words, I channeled my inner Dowager Countess from Downton Abbey for this read. Regards to Gabi.
