Lizzie wrote the invitation. Her mom planned and made the sweet and savory treats. Lizzie and her mom dressed up, because they’d requested that their guests wear their finest.
Together Lizzie and her mom decorated their tea table on hay bales. Their guests’ mouths watered as they viewed the delicacies. They caught up on barnyard news as they sipped steaming tea and enjoyed the scrumptious tastes of the treats.
As luck and barnyard life would have it, they were all in for a big surprise that no one saw coming. Look forward to reading how everyone reacts.
This book’s fun artwork illustrating the animals’ teatime finery gives readers and listeners a peek into their special gathering. The text teaches teatime vocabulary that allows readers to take part in the time-honored traditions of teatime.
A Barnyard Tea Party is a fun book that readers will want to enjoy again and again, maybe with a side order of tea, sweets, and savories.
Cathy Robbins was a physical-education teacher in elementary schools who integrated reading books aloud into her lessons.
She was born in High Point, North Carolina. At an early age, she became interested in dance. She took lessons at area dance studios. Cathy graduated from UNCG with a degree in physical education and a major in dance.
Though Cathy loves dance, life steered her into a career in fitness, wellness, and sports. She worked with YMCA’s and YWCA’s in North Carolina and Ohio before going into teaching.
Cathy still lives in High Point with her husband Gary on a farm with lots of critters. She retired from teaching and enjoys doing yoga, playing Sudoku, traveling, and antiquing. Most of her days are spent keeping up the farm’s grounds and caring for their animals. Cathy enjoys giving dinner parties and afternoon teas. But bush-hogging, weed-eating, and mucking barn stalls put a smile on her face. Then she shares fun times with family and friends after work is done.
