Sip Tea with Mad Hatter: At KAMP® Review and Giveaway @TCBRbookreview @EWFcares #partner


Written by Loretta Neff
Illustrated by Anirban Mitra

Publisher’s Synopsis: Sip Tea with Mad Hatter  makes learning afternoon tea manners fun, meaningful, and most important, memorable. Any adult or child who reads this book will delight in the clever illustrations and correlations of Alice in Wonderland’s characters to the manners advice.

Phrases like Be as cool as a Cheshire cat, Don’t be a mean Red Queen, and My teacup runneth over with gratitude are easy-to-grasp concepts for children.

With the demanding schedules of parents, caregivers, and teachers, the importance of social skills is often overlooked. Learning social skills early, especially during childhood, can shape a child’s character and greatly impact his or her life for the better.
The EW Foundation® (EWF) vision is to teach, inspire, and motivate children to perform spontaneous acts of kindness and consideration. The benefits they receive from simple, good behavior will be both tangible and intangible. Our belief is that children can “do well by doing good deeds.“

The topics covered in this book are part of the EWF KAMP® curriculum – 2015 Promising Practices National Award Recipient by

“Once again, thank you, Loretta Neff, for another well-written and entertaining resource that teaches important life skills.”—The Children’s Book Review

Ages 6-12 | Publisher: EW Publishing | 2017 | ISBN-13: 978-0998555904


A person's way of behaving toward others says a lot about them. There are many books and articles that discuss how and when to teach children manners. But let's face it: it's not an exciting subject for kids. Loretta Neff changes that with her new book, Sip Tea With Mad Hatter at At KAMP®.

Sip Tea With Mad Hatter at At KAMP® is a step by step guide that teaches kids how to be a good guest, how to be a good host, and of course, how to have good table manners. Plus much, much more. It has colorful illustrations by Anirban Mitra to go along with each lesson. The concepts are short and sweet with helpful little phrases like "Don't be a mean Red Queen." It's easy for any kid to grasp.

This book encourages creativity, acts of kindness, and confidence. You could read this book with one or ten children. It might be fun to put on a tea party of your own and practice good manners once the book is finished. Manners will take you far in life and Loretta Neff and the EW Foundation will help you get there.
