Sunday Morning for the Kids #BeatrixPotter

 

Sat morning kids(1)I hope you are having the most beautiful Sunday! For those who are celebrating Easter – Festive Easter Wishes to You!! This morning I wanted to share with you another blast from our past and hopefully one from yours as well: the beloved books from Beatrix Potter. The three I have pictured below were my three kids’ very favorites: 56669576_2156166297752385_7663974548181614592_nWhile many are familiar with The Tale of Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny and some may know Jemimah Puddleduck and more of Potter’s well known characters, one of the last tales that she wrote was The Tale of The Flopsy Bunnies. In this tale, Benjamin and Flopsy Bunny have six baby bunnies simply known as the “Flopsy Bunnies.”  The bunnies run off to Mr. MacGregor’s garden are swiftly caught and placed in a sack. Never fear, however, because Thomasina Tittlemouse, my own personal favorite character, comes to the rescue and saves the day. While some critics at the time argued that the illustrations were not as finely executed as her previous works and that Potter’s story was repetitively similar to others, specifically Peter Rabbit, it was a nice bookend for her collection and my youngest son, like countless other children, loved the Flopsy Bunnies and the trouble that they caused, as well as the joy of saying Thomasina Tittlemouse over and over again. 

If you haven’t read Beatrix Potter’s collection or even if it has been many years since last have done so, I encourage you to pick up a book or two of her classic tales and enjoy the wonderful prose as well as the marvelously rich illustrations of these classics. 

I’m linking us with a dear friend of mine over at Read, Rant, Rock and Roll who has a terrific feature called Shabby Sunday where she features older children’s books that are a bit shabby and worn. I thoroughly enjoy reading her reviews and seeing these older books from our past. I hope you will too.  What are you reading to your kids or grandkids this week. Have you reviewed a great children’s, teens or YA book that you could share with us? Link us up!! We would love to know!

  1. I love Beatrix Potter and enjoyed reading the books to my daughter when she was small. It’s a pity The World of Beatrix Potter wasn’t open way back then…but I still might go!! Enjoy your Sunday.

  2. We love Beatrix Potter as well! Although we have two of the smaller books like these in the picture, we have a huge treasury that’s my personal favorite.

    Thanks for linking up with me, Mackey! Enjoy your day! 💙

    1. Beatrix Potter is so wonderful. I think Molly has our treasury collection but I really do need to check and make sure that she does. These three were all I could find in our collection so I’m crossing my fingers that is where it is.

      Have a beautiful week – it should be lovely for a change!
