Beatrix Potter's Birth Anniversary

Beatrix Potter's Birth Anniversary

Potter, Beatrix.
The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin.
1988 (1909).
Frederick Warne.

Summary from Barnes & Noble:

Squirrel Nutkin would rather ask an old owl riddles than gather nuts with the other squirrels.

There's something about Beatrix Potter's work that I just love... perhaps its the illustration and ways in which the characters are portrayed... Kids are sure to love the mischievous squirrel in this tale and it's definitely worth sharing!

Potter, Beatrix.
The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck.
1995 (1908).
Frederick Warne.

Summary from Amazon:

Follow Jemima Puddle-Duck in the simple retelling of her search for a place to hatch her eggs.

Well, it's typical fashion of Beatrix Potter's writing, but the story itself was a bit sad... However, that being said, I do think that Beatrix Potter fans will enjoy this just as much as her others!
