This was a favorite of all my children and they always wanted me to read it when they were sick. Now I get to read it to my grandson when he is sick and wakes up in the middle of night and now it is one of his favorites. ( )

Contains the original text and illustrations, but is in a less expensive and slightly larger binding. ( )

Peter Rabbit lives with his family under the roots of a tree. Peter and his sisters are allowed to play whereever they want besides Mr. McGregor's garden. Peter knows better but as soon as he can he goes to the garden. Peter's disobedience gets him into lots of trouble as he must try to escape the garden and get back home safely. This is a classic children'ts picture book with beautiful illustrations that will captivate the reader. This could be used to teach students the importance of following directions and not disobeying. It could also be used to talk about gardens and types of soil in science class. While not a direct tie, it is a good way to incorporate literature into science. ( )
