Author: Beatrix Potter
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.
A friend of mine gave me her collection of movies recently. Looking through the list of movies, I saw one titled “Miss. Potter”., so obviously I was intrigued. You see I thought it would be some vague fan fiction, or some story about Harry’s daughter. But, I HAD to see it. A first couple of minutes into the movie, it became very clear that I was wrong, but it was an amazing movie all the same. The movie was on like of Miss. Beatrix Potter who is a renowned author of Many Children’s books, and The Tale of Peter Rabbit was her first book.
If you have a child between the ages of two to five, this book series would be wonderful for them. Miss. Potter’s books are full of colourful illustrations and her stories are imaginative, that could captivate the young minds.
Peter Rabbit is a naughty rabbit of his family, all his other siblings are good mannered. And the series then goes on to include other families as well like the Ducks.
