Peter Rabbit and other tales...

We have a book club that brings books for sale to our dealership. Last week there was a lovely, big hard cover edition of this book for just $25. I had to buy it - I had thoughts of reading aloud to my grand-children in years (many years) to come. I love Peter Rabbit and his friends.

I am on the look out for a nice Nursery Rhyme book with all the old rhymes - Jack be nimble, Jack be quick; Wee Willy Winky; Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold; The owl and the pussy cat - etc.

  1. I can remember having all the small Beatrix Potter books. I still remember most of the old rhymes, we used to have a beautifully illustrated book of the owl and the pussycat, and another of - The Night Before Christmas.

  2. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog! The Book Despository (in the UK, but ships free, yes free!, to australia, and lists their books in aussie dollars) is a great online bookstore - you might find something there. http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/search?searchTerm=classic+nursery+rhymes&search=search

  4. Did you watch the movie on Beatrix Potter? It was good, all about her life and how her writing and drawings came to life.
