Do you recall your favorite childhood fairytale? Perhaps you loved Hansel and Grettel or maybe Winnie the Pooh? I loved Peter Rabbit. I had a pop up book of the story and today in honor of Beatrix Potter's birthday I thought I would take a blog to remember my childhood friend Peter. I even named my first bunny Flopsy after one of Miss. Potter's books.
This is Beatrix Potter... courtesy Wikipedia.
This is one of Miss. Potter's illustrations in Peter Rabbit. You'll see Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter. Peter was always the naughty one! If you have children I hope you'll take the opportunity to check out one of Potter's books the next time you go. There is also a movie "Miss. Potter" starring Renee Zellweger.
