The Lake District, where I live was the home of Beatrix Potter. I used to read the Tales of Peter Rabbit to my children as a bedtime story. Children can use the books when they themselves are leaning to read. The stories are simple, amusing and clear. The characters are fascinating. Everyone loves the naughty animals.
The illustrations by the author are beautiful.
You simply can't go wrong giving a Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit book as a Christening gift.
This is an excellent biography of Beatrix Potter
This biography by Linda Lear gets 5 stars from its readers. Beatrix Potter was an extraordinary woman. Holding out against those who told her that drawing and writing were not suitable occupations for a wealthy young woman, Beatrix went on to become a riich lady in her own right.
In her second home, the Lake District (where I live) her legacy of preservation of the coutryside, and of the local Herdiwcik sheep, still lives on today.
