She will spend hours decorating her room and setting up the perfect party that she sometimes forgets that its supposed to be fun.

The Princess Twins and the Tea Party is the story of the Princess Twins Emma and Abby. Emma wants the spring tea party to be absolutely perfect.

The Princess Twins and the Tea Party is a faith based level 1 I Can Read! early reader with a great lesson for everyone. All too often we get caught up in being perfect. We miss out on so many opportunities to enjoy the people and things around us because things just arent perfect. My daughter has missed out on playdates with her friends, because I felt the house wasnt clean enough. My daughter almost missed out enjoying her party because her brother spilled water on the napkins and she felt her table was no longer perfect. In life rarely do things go according to plan and just like Emma we need to be reminded that only God is perfect. We need to learn to step aside and enjoy lifeimperfections and all.
When the party was ruined I love how Abby took a bad situation and turned it around. Emma learned that even when things take a turn for the worst, something good can be found in the situation. The girls and their friends were able to laugh at themselves and enjoy the day even though it didnt go as planned.
The book is based on Proverbs 3: 34 He [God] gives grace to those who are no proud. My daughter and I talked about how God will give us the grace to find the good in the bad things that happen around us. She discovered that when she lost her homework and had to redo it, she had extra time to practice. When she sprained her foot and had to stay indoors at recess, she made a new friend who was also staying indoors.
The Princess Twins and the Tea Party has short simple sentences that is perfect for young readers. The book has a fun story line that is well told. The illustrations are fun and capture the excitement of the day perfectly. We both enjoyed this story and cant wait to read other books in this series.
