Peter Rabbit....should have listened to Old Mrs. Rabbit!
So enjoyable to be teaching a Beatrix Potter literature course at our local home school co-op this session. I love good literature and feel we owe it to our children to expose them to good literature, elevate their language/vocabulary and lure them in with a good story and exciting characters. Peter Rabbit and friends are so likable. The children today were so upset Peter was getting chased all over the garden by Mr. McGregor and so afraid he wouldn't get away! And the sighs of relief...when he finally got out of the garden and raced home. oh my!
Peter didn't listen to his mother Old Mrs. Rabbit - he disobeyed, and had quite a terrible day!
We did a lovely little craft and next week we'll try our hands at water color painting as we learn about Peter's cousin Benjamin Bunny this next time.
