)-- Alice’s Pawfect Tea-Party Let’s Kids Know Peers, Friends & Classmates Are Always Welcome
The Storybook Tea Kit Company, creators of the classic tea kit book Alice’s Pawfect Tea-Party, announced today their Mission Statement: “Bee A Buddy, Not A Bully.”
The Storybook Tea Kit Company is aware of the epidemic of children being bullied by their peers. Just as manners were taught to Alice, so too, our children must be taught how to be inclusive with their classmates. Exclusion is a behavior which should have zero tolerance in our schools — Bee a buddy, not a bully. When reading Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, there are numerous bullies throughout the story. Alice comes in contact with several of them at the Mad tea-party. When Alice approached the table the guests all cried out, “No Room, No Room!” This is the very essence of a bully — to exclude, and Alice’s Pawfect Tea-Party, shuns this behavior.
Alice, in this story of Alice’s Pawfect Tea-Party lovingly explains to all tea guests, that there is plenty of room for everyone. She teaches this lesson very cleverly. She states the word mad is exactly the same word as paw. All you do is turn mad upside down, reverse the letter a, and it becomes paw. Alice goes on to explain that the letter P stands for peers or friends; A is for always; W is for welcome. Your peers, friends, classmates are always welcome; which to Alice is truly a “pawfect” tea-party. This is the moral that children learn in Alice’s Pawfect Tea-Party; a moral that Storybook Tea Kit Company embraces for each and every child. “It saddens me when I see a child marginalized and excluded. It is so unfortunate that technology is the new tool in bullying. Blogging, Facebook and Twitter only add to the one-on-one physical bullying that is inflicted in school. Due to the inexperience of adolescence, the often bullied child, pre-teen and even college student believe their only escape is violence upon themselves. My hope is that we are able to teach and touch the hearts of kids around the world with Alice’s Pawfect Tea-Party, turning them into “Buddies” instead of “Bullies,” said Joann Siegel, founder of the Storybook Tea Kit Company.
The Storybook Tea Kit Company (storybookteakit.com) created the tea kit book to help today’s hi-tech child connect and engage in classic literature. Alice’s Pawfect Tea-Party™ (inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Chapter 7 A Mad Tea-Party from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland) invites children to come to tea without their iPad.
