Beatrix Potter's Birthday

Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, Tom Kitten and the Two Bad Mice are current favourites with Little Cherub, so when I noticed this morning that Google's logo included Peter Rabbit and Mr. McGregor I had to investigate ... and discovered that yesterday was Beatrix Potter's birthday.

In honour of Miss Potter's 142nd birthday (albeit a day late), I thought I'd post a few links. Lots of stuff here that I'll be coming back to with Little Cherub over the next few years.

How pitiful am I? I realized it was BP's birthday yesterday only because Google had Mr. McGregor chasing Peter thru the "google" logo!

We've done a couple of unit studies on her but we never get tired or her stories, her art or her nature studies! What a fascinating woman!

Mary was ahead of me. I couldn't figure out why Google had a Peter Rabbit logo!

You both did better than me ... I didn't notice the Peter Rabbit until this morning, by which time it was a day late!

I just found this page of rare Beatrix Potter sketches here and thought you'd enjoy them.
