Yesterday, as I was driving down the street with my kids, we saw a wonderful scene. Two little bunnies were playing together under a tree! It was such a charming sight. I remembered when I read books about Peter Rabbit to my children. They loved hearing about how naughty little Peter escaped from Mr. McGregor and gets to drink camomile tea after his mother puts him to bed.
The Tale of Peter Rabbit was written by Beatrix Potter for a little boy in 1902. Potter’s classic has been read and enjoyed by children for more than one hundred years. That story should not be confused with “Here Comes Peter Cottontail,” an Easter television special based on a book about the Easter Bunny. Both books are associated with baby Easter dresses, Easter dresses for girls, bunnies, tea, eggs, flowers, plants, vegetables, candy, and cookies. Both books are also great learning tools.
Books about Easter and other holidays can be read over and over again since kids love reading and learning about bunnies, candy, Easter dresses, and decorations. The more books are read, the more success your child will have in school and in life.
