The timely story takes children on an adventure with Little Earth, who really wants to go outside and play with his planet friends, but he can’t until he is feeling better and instead finds a colourful way to stay in touch with everyone.
Ebtisam Al-Beiti comments on the partnership, “I’m thrilled to be kickstarting The St. Regis Downtown, Dubai’s children’s literature afternoon tea, the Tiny Tea. Engaging children in stories and the act of reading for pleasure is so important to me, and finding fun and creative ways to do so is always very exciting. The St. Regis’ efforts to make the Tiny Tea sustainable would make Little Earth very happy and shows that you can still enjoy the finer things, while also taking care of the planet.”
