Party School (ending study of American Girl Samantha and the early 1900s)
Brave Writer mom, Christine, writes:
To finish our study of Samantha, we hosted a Victorian tea party and luncheon. We had yummy sandwiches, fruit salad, lemonade, and tea. The girls went on a hunt for beautiful leaves and we made leaf rubbings as our craft.
We talked about the era and even read poetry together! It was a wonderful end to the study of this time period.

It is my pleasure to announce the publication of Brave Writer’s collection of treasured poems for Poetry Teatime!
Poetry Teatime Companion is an anthology of public domain poetry paired with gorgeous artwork and fascinating details about each of the hand-picked poems. The poems are divided by season and categories (like “Creatures of the Air” and “Light Bearers”).
The 8″ x 10″ paperback book is the right size for both little and big hands. The four-color illustrations make it easy for young children to pick a poem to read!

“It really is so encouraging to watch a child who thought that poetry was not something that he would be interested in, to ask me to renew Where the Sidewalk Ends for the third time” ~Alisha

My name is Heidi, and I have four young children, ages 6, 5, 3, and 1. This is our second weekly teatime, and we are so excited to continue this new tradition. My girls were so excited to share a teatime with Grandma while we were on vacation, and our one year old son wasn’t about to be left out!
Today we got our own teapot, sugar bowl, and cream pitcher, and we’re all eagerly awaiting Friday teatime.
Thanks for encouraging this! Poetry is a subject that I am weak in, and I’m excited to have such a fun way to grow in it!!
