A classic tale about a few naughty little bunnies and their bunny daddy. The small book size is perfect for small hands, and the story is perfect for short attentions. Part of a collection of Peter Rabbit Books by Beatrix Potter. ( )
  Ermina | Feb 25, 2016 |
Summary: This book is a sequel to the Peter Cottontail books. This follows Benjamin Bunny and his cousin Flopsy and their six baby bunnies. They are captured by a human and put in a sack but manage to escape and replace the contents with rotten vegetables.

Personal connection: I love the continuation of the Peter Cottontail books and like how cunning the six bunnies were.

Class use: Have students draw what they think the bunnies house looks like. ( )

very cute--a little tale that teaches children what it means to be a bad little bunny.

Love Beatrix Potter for early readers! I am reading this to my preschool aged son, and it is a welcome change from many of the more modern picture books. It actually introduced him to some new words, which is something I often cannot say about a children's book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 072324779X, Hardcover)

To celebrate Peter's birthday, Frederick Warne is publishing new editions of all 23 of Potter's original tales, which take the very first printings of Potter's works as their guide. The aim of these editions is to be as close as possible to Beatrix Potter's intentions while benefiting from modern printing and design techniques.

The colors and details of the watercolors in the volumes are reproduced more accurately than ever before, and it has now been possible to disguise damage that has affected the artwork over the years. Most notably, The Tale of Peter Rabbit restores six of Potter's original illustrations. Four were sacrificed in 1903 to make space for illustrated endpapers, and two have never been used before. Of course, Beatrix Potter created many memorable children's characters, including Benjamin Bunny, Tom Kitten, Jemima Puddle-duck and Jeremy Fisher. But whatever the tale, both children and adults alike can be delighted by the artistry in Potter's illustrations, while they also enjoy a very good read. Because they have always been completely true to a child's experience, Potter's 23 books continue to endure.
