    "We were merry, in an undertone, at the idea of making so large a cup of tea for the fishes." “The die is now cast; the colonies must either submit or triumph…. we must not retreat.” “Nothing of importance happened today.” - George III’s diary, July 4th 1776 “I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure it will cost us to maintain this declaration, and to support and defend these states. Yet through all the gloom I see the rays of ravishing light and glory. I can see that the end "We were merry, in an undertone, at the idea of making so large a cup of tea for the fishes." “The die is now cast; the colonies must either submit or triumph…. we must not retreat.” “Nothing of importance happened today.” - George III’s diary, July 4th 1776 “I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure it will cost us to maintain this declaration, and to support and defend these states. Yet through all the gloom I see the rays of ravishing light and glory. I can see that the end is worth all the means. This is our day of deliverance.” All tea is made from the same plant. Yes, you read right, all tea, whether it’s black, oolong, green, white, or pu-erh, comes from the Camellia sinensis plant in the same way that all wine comes from the grape, albeit different varietals. The Boston Tea Party was a political protest that occurred on December 16, 1773, at Griffin's Wharf in Boston, Massachusetts. American colonists, frustrated and angry at Britain for imposing “taxation without representation,” dumped 342 chests of tea, imported by the British East India Company into the harbor.

    The format is great for early elementary age kids, and the mice add the perfect amount of silliness.

    This is a really fun read! This picture book of the Boston Tea Party is not only informational but humorous as well. This book briefly informs the reader of the events that took place at the Boston Tea Party but also has small mice from that time period hidden on each page with humorous dialogs pertaining to what they are thinking. I would use this book for a social studies class as a fun way to grab students’ attention and get them excited about this topic of American history.

    A cumulative tale that builds the story of the Boston Tea Party form the tea fields of India to the fateful night when the crates of tea filled the harbor. A nice introduction to the events leading up to that rebellious act. The little cartoon mice that pop up in each panel to add a few facts seem out of place and too juvenile for the otherwise somber tone of this recounting. Overall, a very nice resource.

    Author Pamela Duncan Edwards did a wonderful job in telling the story of the Boston Tea Party. It's simplicity gives the readers just enough information to get a glimpse of its history as an introduction. She uses the cumulative story arc, which makes this easy to understand for the young reader. The Mice, who serve as "extras" in the story, add fun and humor. Original and clever.

    This is definitely a read out loud. It is very similar to the poem, This is the House that Jack Built. The mice do not detract from the story line. The time line in the back was very helpful in figuring out when things happened.

    As i was reading this book i felt like i was reading a nursery rhyme and i don't think it does a good job of telling about the Boston Tea Pary or the events leading up to the Boston Tea Party. The only thing i liked about the book were the mice and their comments.
