  1. Hello, This Is On Of My Favorite Books Now, My Teacher Just Read It Today

  2. The book is about these people that are very poor and one day they find a blessing cup. the characters are Anna, Magda , momma and papa. The best part of the book is when they get the tea set and they are not poor any more. I would recommend this book if you like a heart warming story.

  3. This book is about a family who has a precious tea set. The characters are 1 whole family.

    This family was very poor and did not have a place to live. They did not have food they only had the tea set. They gave most of the tea set to the doctor who saved the father.
    I would recommend this book to people who like reading about families.
