This much loved classic children’s book was first published in 1968 and is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary this year. Telling the story of Sophie and her hungry and thirsty tea time guest it is a perfect book to read aloud and also great for a child who has just learnt to read by themselves.
Along with the children’s book shop in Huddersfield we successfully bid for an opportunity to hold a tiger tea party and to have a visit from the tiger!
Yesterday we held two well attended tea parties. We read the story, had drinks and buns (before the tiger could eat them), coloured in masks and did some puzzles and then had a visit from the tiger.
The children enjoyed meeting the tiger and having tiger cuddles and their photos taken.
Many thanks to everyone who came along and special thanks to the tiger for coming to visit us.
