To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought this for our son who was on a Peter RAbbit kick and wanted to have other stories to go with it. The set is beautiful in the box and well-bound. Unfortunately the story of the kittens is not very encouraging with a mom cat who makes some not very smart choices and then blames and lies about her kitty kids when they ruin their new clothes. Not the best role model story for the kids. Peter Rabbit is still the best. The other 2 books contain some humor for adults and a dreamy storytelling of life adventures on the farm which is fun (although how to explain to the little kids what happened to the "polite bushy-tailed gentleman"!!). There's a sense of Beatrix Potter talking to you as the reader and taking you through that world.
This is a birthday gift for a one year old little boy. I had Peter Rabbit books when I was a little girl in England 88 years ago and get pleasure starting our grandchildren and little friends out reading or being read to Peter Rabbit books.
This is a wonderful starter set that we wanted to give our almost 2 year old grandchild for her birthday so she can begin a nice collection. The books are high quality and snuggled into a tough keeper as well. Our order was also prompt and I have been a long time customer and have never had any problems with my orders or products not once.
I had just finished the biography of Beatrix Potter "Over the Hills and Far Away" by Matthew Dennison and wanted to read a couple of her stories. This set was just perfect with her illustrations completing the tales.. A good conclusion to my Beatrix Potter reunion.
In my mind, I could hear my grandmother's voice reading to me when I read Peter Rabbit - such a wonderful nostalgic feeling! I wasn't familiar with the other stories but they were all charming. Absolutely love Beatrix Potter's imagination and watercolor illustrations. She was such a delightful artist.
I bought this set for my new grandson. I want him to have the classic bedtime stories as he grows. This is perfect for his library. Reading is the best brain development for children and a bonding activity for parents.
I am so pleased with this set of little books. Just precious! The size is perfect for a baby shower gift. I wanted Beatrix Potter's original illustrations and am very satisfied. I think I will purchase another set for myself! Thank you!
