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

I own the box sets for all of Beatrix Potter's work and love it to death. Great reading for a children at bed time!
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
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.

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!

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!!
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
didn't recall this book being so stuffy, and British. Fun though when the stories got going.
This book colored my childhood. Wonderful, i love it!

Absolut empfehlenswert. Mein Mentee mag die Geschichten, auch wenn sie noch Probleme mit dem Lesen hat.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
My preschooler really enjoys the story and ilustrations in this book. Written in the early 1900's, it is a story with a moral.
Peter rabbit can bring a child out of anyone who is willing to let him in.
Very cute stories! I really enjoyed more stories from Beatrix Potter.
