Garden enjoyment can take place any day of the year and in so many varied ways. Sometimes, when I can’t get out in my garden, a book can be just the thing. Young and old alike have cherished Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit, both the stories and the unforgettable artwork. It happens to be a favorite around here.
My children love to color. I found some nice Peter Rabbit coloring pages for them work on: Kids-n-Fun Coloring Pages.
Here is a very sweet narration of the beloved story, by a two-year old! I especially love that it features music by Yo Yo Ma. (This has to be viewed on the YouTube site, click my link to be directed.)
Here is another adaption, which combines live action and animation.
And the second half of it:
Winter days needn’t be dreary. There are so many wonderful stories and books with beautiful illustrations–Peter Rabbit is just one of them. It’s fun to lose myself in Mr. McGregor’s garden with Peter. And I love sharing this garden, and the many others in books, with my children.
