This week we have been reading ‘ The world of Peter rabbit and friends ‘ by Beatrix Potter .
The book was sitting idle in our library for almost two years . The date written on the book shows we bought it on Pearl’s 5th birthday . As usual Ruby read it for once and discarded it . I had tried to read it to Pearl quite a few times before and then dropped. She was too restless to listen . She likes stories of princesses and fairies . A typical pinky girl 😀 Now that she has started reading on her own and can understand what is being read she is digging out all the old books from our library . And I am loving it 🙂
What attracts me to the book is the beautiful paintings . Peter is a naughty little rabbit and the stories in the series revolve around Peter rabbit and his friends and neighbours .
The stories of animals in Balarama and Poombatta were always my favorite . What a pity I did not come across Potter’s books when I was a child myself . I simply love her way of writing and her illustrations . Its a joy to read how animals spend their day . hehe 😀 😀 you are correct 😀 More than the kids I am the one who enjoys all these children’s books.
Now we have a collection of her books . I cannot stop myself whenever I come across a Beatrix Potter book . Lately kids have started to haul me away 😦
Enjoy ! A good read with lots of plots to keep little minds engaged .
