KS2 Reading Books: The Tale of Peter Rabbit B. Potter

Beatrix Potter,prominent British writer and illustrator

Beatrix Potter was a prominent British writer, illustrator, and conservationist, who is remembered for her best-selling books for children. In particular, her book ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’; an imaginative children’s book featuring animal characters which is a classic family tale that is still immensely popular among the young of all ages.

The first edition of the book was published in 1902, however, the wonderful storyline and gorgeous illustration of the book has turned it into a timeless masterpiece.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit

In ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’, the author amazingly portrays the character of Peter Rabbit, who is a very mischievous and yet curious rabbit. He always wears a jacket and a pair of shoes. He lives in a rabbit hole that has a kitchen, furniture, and a shop, with his mother, Mrs. Josephine Rabbit, and his sisters, Mopsy, Flopsy, and Cotton-tail.

The trouble he faces in the vegetable garden of Mr. McGregor is beautifully depicted in this famous children’s story. Peter violates the order of his mother and furtively enters into Mr. McGregor’s garden. Then he starts eating as many vegetables as he can, before he is spotted and chased by Mr. McGregor. Somehow Peter manages to escape, however, he loses his jacket and shoes in the process. He returns home exhausted and ill, and is put to bed with a dose of chamomile tea. The story of Peter Rabbit warns the wayward children about the severe consequences of misbehaving and not obeying their parent’s orders. However, any child will simply adore listening to the adventures of Peter Rabbit.


Amazing creation of Beatrix Potter

This amazing creation of Beatrix Potter shows her sense of humour and her stunning talent for telling stories to children.

As mentioned by one of the readers of this book at amazon, “A beautiful book with a lovely story line and the pictures my grandsons love me to read it to them and we look at the pictures, they bring the story to life.”

As can be seen by the experience of this parent, ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ can be enjoyed by yourself and your daughter or son, who will absolutely love it as an excellent bedtime story.
