My grandma Becky gave us Beatrix Potter books for Christmas when we were young. The size of them were so perfect for little hands. My favorite was Mrs. Tittlemouse. I could retell it by heart. I also loved The Tale of Two Bad Mice and of course Peter Rabbit. Just hearing that story again brings back such feeling and imaginings about soft sandy passageways and crisp vegetables.
Have you seen Miss Potter? I had grown up with Beatrix Potter's sweet stories in my hands but never really knew anything about her, other than that we share a birthday. I really loved this movie.
