Afternoon Tea Week occurs the second full week of August. So at least one day this week, how about you pour yourself a cuppa tea and sit back and read this adorable picture book:
Luli is a child who attends childcare while her parent attends English as a second language classes. Because all the other children in childcare speak different languages, they play alone. But Luli has a plan to bring the children together using the language of tea. From cover to cover, I love this book! Andrea Wang’s touching text shows how one child finds a way to make new friends and bring a community together. Hyewon Yum’s color pencil illustrations of children from different backgrounds are gentle, yet expressive. The story is complete with endpaper illustrations of cups of tea from different countries, a note from the author, and tea-fact-backmatter. I love LULI AND THE LANGUAGE OF TEA!
