The Tale of Peter Rabbit & Beatrix Potter

We all enjoyed our time with Peter Rabbit last week. I found some Peter Rabbit coloring books and sticker/book sets in the dollar section at Target. The kids made their own books using the stickers. We spent some time learning more about Beatrix Potter too. We watched the movie, Miss Potter. We read several of her books and a few books about her life. Caleigh especially liked The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck because she has a little stuffed animal of her. She saw it when we were at Disney World in the England section of EPCOT and just had to have it. We also read and learned more about England and gardens.

I found a DVD at the library with many of the Beatrix Potter tales and the kids really liked those.

Notebook stuff: what is a fortnight, things that grow in Mr. McGregor's garden, how you can tell the story is an animal fantasy, where is England, and what I know about Beatrix Potter. You can also see the rabbit stuff from last week included here.
