Nothing can make me feel better than Beatrix Potter - especially with full color plates like these to look at.
I love these small books because of the illustrations. BP is an acute observer, and her pictures are so full of these small, wonderful details. She creates a small and idyllic world that any child relates to. At the same thing she is not totally unrealistic because her world can be quite sinister and threatening at times as well. The text is interesting because she is a mix of the stereotypical annoying Victorian bitch and a quite modern woman. The books are a delight to read to kids, again and again as it happens.
I never read these as a child (sad I know) and so enjoyed sharing them with my own children. This book which contained all of her works including some unpublished works was lovely. It’s one of those books that will be read and read again, so is one I’d like to own.Loved the stories, loved the illustrations. Both of my children enjoyed them all.
I grew up with Beatrix potter’s stories, and used to get my parents to read them to me all the time. This anthology of her work is a great book that can be read out loud to children and is mostly about animals found around a common farm. Some of the stories do have some questionable content like rabbit threatened to be eaten or animals getting trapped but I remember not being effected by that at all, in fact that made the ending even better. It’s great when a small animal out wits the human that’s threatening them.The book is formatted so that each important portion of the story has a page to itself and an illustration of what’s going on. This is great it a child wants to flip through the book themselves and will engaged them in the story. The pictures are beautifully drawn with rich colors that are very appealing to young and old eyes, and add more to the story. It visually shows just how clever a young rabbit is feeling or how a little kitten feels about getting dirty, much better than words could.
