A collection of books that all have a moral in them. Some I cannot figure out :D

Loved this little book so much that growing up I'd taken my mother's copy as my own and placed it on my own bookshelf. I did have to return it before moving out, but I'll find one of my own someday... :)

I loved this as a little girl. It was my favorite book. The tale of Squirrel Nutkin (I even named my kitten Nutkin). The Tale of Two Bad Mice was also one of my favorites (I named my hamster Hunca Munca). Her tales have to be the best stories for children! :)
