Ok, never read Beatrix Potter as a kid (though I have heard of Peter Rabbit and recognized her illustrations pretty well because she's so popular) so reading this for school was really my first time ever but ohmy, this book. IT WAS AWESOME. It had things that I don't think children's books could get away with saying nowadays. For example in "Tale of Peter Rabbit" the mother warned the bunnies not to go into Mr. McGregor's garden because their father was captured and baked into a pie and it SHOWS ...more

So cute even after all these years reading them again
Beatrix Potter's stories of personified animals are a delightful tour of the themes that shape our lives: obedience... and disobedience, adventure, greed, guilt service, service, hard work, telling the truth, love, and on and on and on. These impressions are colored with Potter's whimsical mark of narration and illustration. A family treasure. Highly recommended.

[Quick review from memory until I re-read and re-review at a later date:

I've never really thought about Peter Rabbit much and I don't remember anything about this at all. Is that an omen?]

Beautiful, marvelous drawings, but some stories didn't raise to my expectations.

Beatrix Potter was always a favorite during childhood. Mom use to read to us from a collection of select stories. A few Christmases back I asked for some of her books, hoping to revisit the stories. This book was given then, though I never read the whole thing until now.

I knew the first tow stories in the collection well—the tales of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny. They were both in the old collection I knew. But the Second two stories, "The The of the Flopsy Bunnies" and "The Tale of Mr. Tod"
My son and I read this as a part of Sonlight's P4/5 curriculum. I loved Beatrix Potter's stories as a child so I was excited to share these with my son. The stories were just as wonderful as I remembered. My son's favorite characters were Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny. The illustrations in this edition are lovely. Even though the last story is quite long (we broke it up between 2 days) my son could have listened to whole thing in one sitting. He was completely enthralled. The older vocabulary ...more

Not bad, nice little stories, I always thought Peter Rabbit was a cocky little creature but turns out he was really traumatised by his experience in Mr McGregor's garden, you really see this in the Benjamin bunny story, my daughter thought it was really sad.

The first 3 stories are short but the last one about Mr Tod feels epic, the pictures in that story amazing, especially the brutal fight between the fox and the badger. Love me a bit of violence in kids books.

Enjoyed this more than I expected,
I can remember reading and loving the Tale of Peter Rabbit when I was a kid, and revisiting it as an adult was no less satisfying. This collection of the four stories was/is wonderful. While Peter Rabbit's tale is my favorite, the other three (The Tale of Benjamin Bunny, The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies, and The Tale of Mr. Tod) were equally enjoyable.

A book that my children had me read out loud dozens and dozens of times. One of the first books they read independently. The short paragraphs and multitude of pictures simply gave my children the illusion they were reading a simple "picture book with a few more words." This book delighted them and greatly increased their vocabulary. Fantastic illustrations and wonderful stories.
This was a little boring for my son. He's 6 years old almost 7 so maybe I should have waiting to read it to him. Then again I was a little bored as well. However, the pictures are pretty and the storyline is cute. I have to give Beatrix Potter her props for making such cute stories.

These tales are pretty horrific when you actually read them - little bunnies getting "dashed against" things, really mean characters, the bunnies smoke... so I'm glad we read them now so I will remember not to read them when he's older!!

An excellent and timeless classic and worthy read.
Some editing on the parents part may be required as some parts were a bit dated in the style of parental discipline to the young rabbits.

Can also aid in encouraging eating veggies and drinking chamomile tea!

Peter and Benjamin had fun stories but Mr.Brock's was a little more comical. I've had this book for years, but it is refreshing to read again.

A childhood favorite, follow the little rabbit takes on a whole new meaning in this series of anthropomorphic animal characters. While lessons are learned, it's not heavy handed moralistically.
May 08, 2009 Amber rated it liked it
I understand these are cute stories and they have good morals in them, but frankly I find them kinda of boring, and so do my kids. They are cute though.

My son and I read this together today and he absolutely loved it. I remember reading these as a child, so it's really awesome to enjoy them again, but this time with my son.

Cute book. Rather simple stories, not all of which were incredibly memorable, but I found the illustrations and Potter's use of language quite charming.

Different version of Peter Rabbit, variants in art, assuming I've got both versions correctly compared to Goodreads.

I received this book as a gift for my newborn son. I read a story out of it once a day and he always has a smile on his face. A great childhood classic

Cute, simple stories published in 1902, but what vocabulary! I wish current children's books weren't so dumbed down.

One of my very favorites from childhood. I still have this book and have read it with 5 of my 6 children so far. Classic.

My preschooler really enjoys the story and ilustrations in this book. Written in the early 1900's, it is a story with a moral.

This is a must for any child's library. We love Beatrix Potter. Note: nice read anytime, but it you're looking for Easter "bunny" stories, these are great.
