The Peter Rabbit Library

Yorkshire Blog, Mummy Blog, Parent Blog, Peter Rabbit, The Peter Rabbit Library, Review, The Works, Books Children's Books,

I'm sure all of us grown adults know, or have read the Peter Rabbit books during our time. The beautiful stories by Beatrix Potter that had us all hooked as children. I miss those days. Now, when I read books to the boys, it's about cartoon characters or action heroes.

So when The Works said that we could choose something from their website to review, I chose the Peter Rabbit Library purposely, so that I could show the boys something different, something that I used to read when I was small. 

The Peter Rabbit Library is a set of 10 beautifully illustrated tales, each told with Beatrix Potter's trademark wit. The book set comes in a super pretty case, and all beautifully colourful. A full colour set of 10 hardback tales that will set the imagination alight.

The collection of 10 books include:

The Tale of Peter Rabbit
The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin
The Tailor of Gloucester
The Tale of Two Bad Mice
The Tale of Mrs. Twiggy-Winkle
The Tale of Benjamin Bunny
The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher
The Tale of Tom Kitten
The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck
The Tale of The Flopsy Bunnies

The stunning writing of Beatrix Potter brings flooding back, childhood memories of my parents reading the stories to me when I was a kid. The illustrations which are beautiful and colourful, taking us on the journey along the way.

At the moment, Thomas is a little too young to be able to read the whole stories on his own. There is a lot more reading than other books he reads. But for me, these are the perfect bedtime stories. Ones that I can read to the boys and to fill their minds with fluffy animals and fun before bedtime.

The stories are beautiful and inspiring, I love them and the boys do too. So far, my favourite is The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck whereas the boys love the story of The Tale of Peter Rabbit.

Not only do I think that this set is a perfect item for your children to cherish and read as they grow up, but it would be the perfect gift for any young child too.

The Peter Rabbit Library has an RRP of £35 but The Works currently have it on sale for only £12.99 which is fantastic when you think about it, 10 books for that small price. 

You can find The Peter Rabbit Library, many more books and stationary on The Works Website.

  1. These books remind me of overnight stays with my grandparents when i was a little girl. My nan would read them to us (my sister too) as bedtime stories and we would want to hear them over and over again.
