The Little Teacup That Talked by Emilie Barnes


The Little Teacup That Talked by Emilie Barnes

Bestselling author Emilie Barnes and celebrated artist Michal Sparks, creators of A Little Book of Manners and A Little Book of Manners for Boys (more than 260,000 combined copies sold) present a colorfully illustrated, whimsical story of a little teacup who speaks up about becoming beautiful through all of life's experiences. As the grandmother held in her hand the precious teacup with the wonderful story, she thought of what she might say to her granddaughter when she presented her with the gift. She might tell her that just as there will be times of happiness and celebration in her life, there will also be times of sadness and hurt. This engaging tale of trusting God will be a classic for children and adults and is a great gift for birthdays, times of transition and celebration, and any day that calls for a cup of encouragement and cheer.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
