TEA REX by Molly Idle. Viking, 2013.
Manners are so important. Cordelia decides to host a tea party for Mr. Rex (as in T-rex), and wants everything to be just so. The text decrees the proper manners for an event such as this (greet your guest at the door, give him a confortable seat) while the illustrations demonstrate just how difficult it is sometimes to be the perfect host or hostess. Warm gentle humor pervades the story with endpapers that include a formal invitation and a formal thank you note as well. Dee-lightful!
