Happy Birthday, Peter

Peter Rabbit that is. Today marks 120th birthday of Peter Rabbit. On today in 1893 Beatrix Potter first told the story of Peter Rabbit in the form of a picture letter to Noel Moore, the son of Beatrix's former governess.

Beatrix had a rabbit she named Peter and that was the inspiration for her letter/story. The book was published in 1902.

Just a fun fact for our British Children's Author study.

Do you have a favorite Beatrix Potter book?

  1. I like the story of Mrs Tiggywinkle because we own a miniature hedgehog! But I also have enjoyed all her others. We had a collection.
