One of my favorite things to see is when my kids lock onto a wonderful book and ask for it to be read over and over. It’s a mark of a keeper! We try to build a home library for our children that is full of great books.
The latest additions to our library are The Tale of Peter Rabbit and Peter Rabbit at the Farm, adorable little hardback books for ages 3-9 from Kinder Cottage Publishing. The Tale of Peter Rabbit, as most of you know, is about a mischievous little rabbit who gets into trouble in Mr. McGregor’s garden and then with his mama later on. In Peter Rabbit at the Farm, Peter helps the farm friends he meets get out of trouble, some of which he himself caused, and manages to fall asleep at home before being scolded by his mama.
Peter Rabbit at Our House
My kids were already familiar with many Peter Rabbit stories when we cracked open the Kinder Cottage books, but they have quickly become favorites. The language has been updated to a more modern verbiage from the original text and the sweet vintage illustrations are wonderful. They are often in the read-aloud pile and my 6 year old has read them to us as well, although he did need my help along the way with the harder words. It was actually great practice for that reason.
