Get ready for the first day of school with Peter Rabbit!
Peter is starting forest school with Benjamin Bunny, and he couldn't be more thrilled--he wants to learn about all the things the woods have to offer. But when Peter realizes that his sisters won't be there, he gets nervous. What will he do without them? Luckily, Mrs. Rabbit reassures him and shows him that school's not so scary, after all!
With Eleanor Taylor's humorous illustrations of Beatrix Potter's beloved characters, this charming tale mirrors young children's experiences of trying new things and getting over first-day jitters.
About the Author
Beatrix Potter was born on July 28, 1866, at No. 2, Bolton Gardens, Kensington, London. Beatrix Potter discovered her love of nature on annual summer holidays in Scotland and the Lake District. On September 4, 1893, Beatrix sat down to write a picture letter to Noel Moore, the five-year-old son of her ex-governess, all about a naughty rabbit called Peter. Noel was ill in bed and so Beatrix wrote to him: "My dear Noel, I don't know what to write to you, so I shall tell you a story about four little rabbits. . . . " Some years later, Beatrix thought of publishing the story as a book. She rewrote it into an exercise book and sent it to six publishers. It was rejected by every one of them. It was not until Beatrix had printed the book herself that Frederick Warne agreed to publish it. The Tale of Peter Rabbit was published in 1902, costing one shilling (the equivalent of just 5 pence today), and became one of the most famous stories ever written. Many of Beatrix's later books were set at Hill Top—the rats that infested the farm inspired The Tale of Samuel Whiskers, Tom Kitten and his sisters climb up the rockery wall at the bottom of Hill Top garden, and Ginger and Pickles.
