    Potter, B. (1902). The tale of Peter Rabbit. New York: Warne. This classic tale by Beatrix Potter recounts the misadventures of Peter, a disobeying little rabbit who gets himself in trouble by going to Mr. McGregor’s garden to eat the delicious veggies found there. However, things do not go well for Peter as he starts getting sick to his stomach, and then almost gets caught by Mr. McGregor. In the end, disobedient Peter has chamomile tea for dinner while his siblings enjoy a good dinner. I especially like the illustrations by Beatrix Potter that face each accompanying section of text. I find them very endearing, and they definitely contribute to the understanding of the story as they feature all the major points in it. As B. Potter wanted it, this book is meant to be held by little hands, hence its small format. It is a unique book as it has endured through more than one century, and is still enjoyed and beloved by children today (along with other B. Potter’s stories).Ages 3 to 8 (will work well as a read-aloud for ages 3-6). Another book written in the same decade (same year, in this case): Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling (1902).

    Potter's classic tale of Peter Rabbit is a must-have for any school or public children's collection. Peter Rabbit, unlike his more well behaved siblings, disobeys his mother by venturing into Mr. McGregor's garden. After being spotted, Peter wears himself out AND loses his good clothes while escaping the situations he falls into. The moral is: listen to your mother! Potter's illustrations are timelessly beautiful and realistic with magical and personified touches. The story is short and straightforward; a good choice to read before bed.

    A cute story of a rabbit who takes chances in his quest for food. A good book to use when teaching about plot and sequencing. Also can be used to teach cause and effect.

    Even 112 years after it was first published this book remains a beloved children's book. I have fond memories of my mom reading this book to me and later reading this book myself. Peter Rabbit is different than his siblings Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail. They were happy to gather blueberries, but Peter’s curiosity leads him to Mr McGregor’s garden where he was told not to go by his Mum. He ignores his mother’s warning and goes anyway. Even today children can relate to the character Peter Rabit. The off limits is always irresistible to kids. The plot is simple which makes it easy for children to follow. The story contains a valuable lesson about the consequences of disobedience and the importance of listening to your parents.

    I remember reading Peter Rabbit as a child, so its nostalgic for me. I liked the illustrations for the books as well. They were warm, colorful, and made me feel at home.

    I enjoyed this little tale about a young rabbit named Peter. Before going out, Peter's mother warned Peter and his siblings about not going into Mr. McGregor's garden while she was gone. Peter being the mischievous rabbit that he was, ignored his mother's instructions and ventured off to Mr. McGregor's garden anyway. After roaming around the garden and eating some lettuce, he was spotted by Mr. McGregor. Mr. McGregor went crazy and chased little Peter all over the garden. Eventually Peter made a great escape and ran straight home where he passed out from exhaustion. Peter felt terrible and went to bed. His mother didn't know what happened to him, but she gave him some medicine as he went to bed.

    A little rabbit who has made his way into the hearts of so many children and adults alike over the years. Delightful.
  • (5/5)
    This is a good example of fantasy because there is a conflict between good and evil and the events could never happen in the real world. The setting of this book is specific, but could happen at any time in several different places. There must be a garden with a woods nearby, but this could be anywhere.

    I kind of don't know why this is a big deal--it's a cute enough story, but are we really supposed to be riveted by how "naughty" Peter is and how he's stepping out of rabbit-nursery into rabbit-Ypres? We're not Edwardians anymore.

    In my opinion this is a good book. The story is about Peter Rabbit, who is very mischievous and breaks the rules that his mother gives. Peter finds himself in trouble and finds many different ways to escape. I liked how the plot of this story was very strong. For instance, there is a clear beginning, middle, and end of the story, including a conflict. The end of the story solves the problem, but a lesson is still learned. At the end, he does get home safely, but he misses out on supper with his siblings. Another thing that I liked about this story was the character of Peter Rabbit. This story shows a character misbehaving and not doing what they were told and in a result they almost deal with consequences that could arise. I think that it is easy for children to relate to Peter Rabbit and the author did a very good job of developing this character into someone that children can read about and believe. Overall, the message of the story is the idea of disobedience. Peter Rabbit does not listen to his mother, which is a lesson for children to learn that “parents know best.” Children can see how breaking the rules can result in many difficult consequences.

    What's better than Peter Rabbit in French? I bought this little book long ago and I don't remember exactly where or when but it is adorable.

    The Tale of Peter Rabbit is a story about four little rabbits who lived with their Mother. Mother left the children to go to the baker's and told them not to get into mischief, and especially don't go into Mr. McGregor's garden. Peter Rabbit's siblings went down the lane to gather blackberries, but Peter went straight for Mr. McGregor's garden. He ate lettuce, french beans, radishes and when he was looking for some parsley, he ran into Mr. McGregor! Mr. McGregor chased Peter and Peter got trapped in gooseberry net. Some friendly sparrows helped Peter out of the net and he wandered around the garden trying to find his way out. Peter eventually found his way out and ran all the way home without looking back, but he had lost all of his clothes.This story shows that there can be consequences to your actions and that you should follow the rules. Each student could re-create their favorite scene from this book by drawing it out and write one sentence explaining why they chose that scene.

    I remember loving this as a child, particularly the cat by the pond. It's still a great 5-minute read when sleep appears elusive.

    Summary- Peter Rabbit, being the honoree bunny he is, does not listen to his mothers warning about keeping away from Mr. McGregor’s garden. Peter goes into the garden to get so berries for him and three siblings. While in the garden, Mr. McGregor finds Peter. Peter finds himself in a lot of danger, while he tries to escape from the angry Mr. McGregor. Peter end up escaping but lost his clothing on the way. He returns home feeling very sick. His sibling and mother get to snack on the nice treat he risked so much to get. Personal Reaction - I really like this book. It is a cute story for kids and it teaches kids a lesson about listening to their parents. The main lesson of this book is about the consequences of dissections. The books good, but the lesion it teaches is the best part.Classroom Extensions 1.“Mr. McGregor’s Garden” Have the student assist you in making a classroom garden. Plant things such radishes, peas, and other thing you would typically find in the garden. Have a daily watering chart to have the kids get involved with the garden2. “ Peter Rabbit and his Family”- Do a small unit over rabbits. Teach about what they eat, where they live, what different kinds of rabbits there are and things along this line. At the end of the unit, ( if you are a loud) bring a live bunny into the classroom.

    A tale that takes many of us back to our childhood. A tale that taught us then and reminds us now of what happens to little bunnies who obey and make good choices and bunnies that are naughty and almost end up in the McGregor stewpot. A tale that leaves us comforted because when Peter comes back from his misadventures, his mother did not scold him, but puts him to bed with some camomile tea for his sick tummy. A classic that delights and instructs yet another generation.

    Summary:This is a story about a little bunny, who was warned not to go into Mr. McGregor’s garden. However, the little bunny doesn’t listen. Mr. McGregor chases him around his garden until Peter, the rabbit, lost his shoes and his jacket. Peter finally escapes and runs home. That night, Peter was not feeling well, due to his events from the day.Personal Reflections:I love this book. I read it many times when I was a young child and it never gets old. The pictures in the story stand out and help the story seem more realistic. I felt like this story had a deeper meaning of teaching children not to steal and also to listen to our parents/guardians. Classroom Extension Ideas:1. This book is a great way to show children that misbehaving has consequences. 2. This book would also teach children that persistence pays off. If he would have given up, Peter Rabbit would have never made it out of the garden.

    The Tale of Peter Rabbit (Xist Illustrated Children's Classics) Classic tale of Peter Rabbit and his bunny family. He wants what is in the farmer's gardenalthough his mother has warned him never to go near it. He can not resist and he gets caught....Great photos and story.
  • (4/5)
    This book is an example of a folktale because it has a moral woven into the ending about misbehaving and the consequences for one's actions. In the story the family of rabbits look like ordinary rabbits but they are given human traits and articles. Peter Rabbit is mischevious and misbehaves and he wears a jacket and shoes. And in real life rabbits do not wear clothing or have human traits.Age Appropriateness: PrimaryMedia: Hand-drawn pictures that are colored using colored pencils
  • (5/5)
    This book can be used for cause and effect because when Peter Rabbit ate the vegetables he got in trouble by his mom for disobeying. This could also teach students to about obedience.
