A lovely picture book about Beatrix Potter and how the Peter Rabbit stories got published. I loved the art work as well. My only wish is that timeline wasn't mentioned at all .

This book is downright gorgeous! I love Beatrix Potter, Peter Rabbit, and England, so I hit the trifecta when reading this picture book. I love the beautiful illustrations and very interesting information about the life of Beatrix Potter. Way back then when women were not allowed (or expected) to do much, Beatrix wanted to do something big. I loved reading anew through the eyes of a younger reader all the wonderful things Beatrix accomplished. This book will be a favorite.

I do have a complaint about the lack of timeline; when we were reading this tonight at family story time, my son asked some questions and I said, "We'll check the timeline at the end, after we finish"...and there was no timeline in the back. :(

But that small thing aside, this was a BEAUTIFUL little picture book biography. Gorgeous illustrations and I enjoyed learning about what Beatrix did to preserve nature for future generations to enjoy. :)
