The classic tale reillustrated by David McPhail is now a board book!Beatrix Potter's beloved tale of the mischievous little rabbit who hops into trouble in Mr. MacGregor's vegetable garden is a childhood classic. Now this edition--lovingly illustrated by David McPhail--is available in a hands-on board book format that's just right for the littlest readers.

This book tells the story of a mischievous rabbit who, against his mother’s advice, decides to venture into Mr McGregor’s Garden. Peter eats his way through a variety of foods in Mr McGregor’s garden before he is caught by the farmer and what ensue are his attempts to escape from the garden!
The story carries a strong theme of the consequences of not following instructions and would be ideal to use within a year two or even year three classroom. It is also a good book to use for activities such as Hot Seating, particularly to get children to think about how various characters, such as Peter or Mr McGregor may be feeling. As well as this, children could carry out drama/role play activities to re-tell the story, write diary entries from different characters' points of view and even have circle time sessions to discuss the consequences of not following instructions.
I enjoyed reading this book and will read it several more time to my kids and grand kids hoping they will learn from Peter

Summary: Peter Rabbit likes to go off on his own and do what he wants despite what his mother tells him. This gets Peter into a whole lot of trouble his mother already predicted. This in the end, teaches Peter a lesson. ( )

THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT by Beatrix Potter is a classic cautionary tale for children about misbehaving and disobeying parents. The book is about a "naughty" young rabbit who deliberately disobeys his mother when she warns him and his three sisters not to go into Mr. McGregors vegetable garden. While wandering about the garden eating carrots and cabbage, Peter gets spotted and chased after by Mr. McGregor. Although Peter is able to escape, he loses his shoes and new blue jacket and is sick for the rest of the night. I think this is a cute little story with darling illustrations to match. I think this book would be great to use during a science lesson or unit on photosynthesis and plant growth. The students could all help to make a small class garden, and I could also have them make their own little scarecrows like the one in the story. ( )

Disambiguation notice
I have been separating the hieroglyph edition from other versions of Peter Rabbit, but it keeps getting combined again. I hold that the group of people who want to read a hieroglyphic version is rather different from average Beatrix Potter fans and therefore the "cocktail party" test applies.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0723247706, Hardcover)

The quintessential cautionary tale, Peter Rabbit warns naughty children about the grave consequences of misbehaving. When Mrs. Rabbit beseeches her four furry children not to go into Mr. McGregor's garden, the impish Peter naturally takes this as an open invitation to create mischief. He quickly gets in over his head, when he is spotted by farmer McGregor himself. Any child with a spark of sass will find Peter's adventures remarkably familiar. And they'll see in Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail that bane of their existence: the "good" sibling who always does the right thing. One earns bread and milk and blackberries for supper, while the obstinate folly of the other warrants medicine and an early bedtime.

Beatrix Potter's animal stories have been a joy to generations of young readers. Her warm, playful illustrations in soft colors invite children into the world of words and flights of fancy. Once there, she gently and humorously guides readers along the path of righteousness, leaving just enough room for children to wonder if that incorrigible Peter will be back in McGregor's garden tomorrow.
