I LOVE all of Beatrix Potter's stories
Reviewed in the United States on January 9, 2015
A true classic! I LOVE all of Beatrix Potter's stories! When I read her tales I'm transported to the world her characters live in and I'm joining in the characters adventures, especially Tom Kitten and his sisters. Who wouldn't love to be with them and the mischief they get into? I read this to my 7 year old niece and 5 year old nephew who absolutely loved the story. Yes, I did have to explain the meaning of some words to them, especially some British English, but they quickly caught on and were absolutely thrilled and delighted with the story and its characters. My only complaint with Beatrix Potter's books is with the small size of the pictures. I would love it if the publishers produced editions with larger pictures so children could better see the tale as it visually unfolds for them. It would also make it easier for us adults to show the pictures as we read the story to the little ones.
