The Tale of Peter Rabbit | Beatrix Potter
post image

From someone living in an area with one of the shortest growing seasons in the contiguous US, I find that my sympathies have shifted as I‘ve aged. Poor Mr. McGregor! At least our spring has finally sprung.

Second day of appointments: today it‘s therapy and after surgery checkup. In-between the two right now, resting while the husband works, and trying to decide which book to read next, Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan‘s The Last Week, or Sarah Weinman‘s The Real Lolita. Again, actually getting some real sun! #soakingupthesun #summerreads #wheelchairselfie

I went to Hill Top yesterday where Beatrix Potter lived. Everything has been preserved and left as it was when she lived there. Such a beautiful place.

After The Laws of the Skies I went with the May pick of #ChildrensClassicRead2019 to soothe me but I should have known better. Potter's beautiful artwork aside, this is kind of a dark story about being out in the world & suffering the consequences of having a healthy curiosity & appetite. The world is full of danger & evil 😭 I felt like I was in the same surrealist fever dream, only now in the English countryside. Stay inside & read, Peter 🐰😰

DivineDiana Never thought about the lessons of this story. 🤔 Good advice! 3w
TheAromaofBooks I always think of Beatrix Potter as a writer of fairy tales, in a way. They have that darker edge/lesson wrapped up in cozy paper. 3w

The chocolate bunny that the hubs put in my Easter basket had a cute little copy of this book in it, so I decided to reread it. My grandma used to read it to me every year before Easter. I can still here her singing “here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail. Hippity hoppity Easter‘s on it‘s way” 💖🐇💐

TheReadingMermaid He's almost too cute to eat! 😍 2mo
VanChocStrawberry Awww! I had a record with that song recorded on it. 2mo
