As her husband was preparing today for his team's tilt against the hated Jets at Gillette, Gisele Bundchen was at the Bristol Lounge, surrounded by dozens of children dressed in their holiday best. A celebrity reader in the Teddy Bear Tea series at the Four Seasons, Tom Brady's supermodel spouse breezed into the Bristol with an easy smile and what she said is her children's favorite book: "The Peace Book" by Todd Parr. (A quick Google search reveals Parr is also the author of "The Grandma Book" and "The I Love You Book.") Bundchen, looking unfussy in a gray top, scarf, and super-skinny jeans, was sweet with the kids. "Okey dokey," she said. "Hello guys...Are you ready for the holidays? I'm Brazilian so I'll try to read in English and hope you can understand." While most of the kids listened intently as Gi read - "Peace is giving shoes to someone who needs them. Peace is planting a tree" - a few wandered away, apparently unaware that the reader was one of the world's most beautiful women. Bundchen finished the book and then posed for photos with the kids and their preening parents. "She was very personable and warm," said Andrea Flaherty, a mom who lives in Westford. "But my son didn't really care about Gisele. As soon as she walked in, he said, 'Where's the teddy bear?'" — Mark Shanahan, Globe Staff
