|Beatrix Potter (1866 – 1943) was an English author, illustrator, and conservationist, best known
for her children's books featuring Peter Rabbit and other animal characters. The first draft of
"The Story of Peter Rabbit" was based on a letter she wrote to a little boy sick in bed, the son
of a favourite governess that had cared for Potter in her childhood.
Literary Traveler: Beatrix Potter - More Than Just Bunnies
"A product of Victorian times, she [Beatrix Potter] far surpassed societal expectations of
women of her era and class. She was an accomplished botanical illustrator, a sheep breeder
and farmer, a wife, and a conservationist greatly devoted to her home, the Lake District of
England." Visit Literary Traveler for a terrific Beatrix Potter bio. Other authors in their Children's
Literature section include E.B. White, Faith Ringgold, and Lewis Carroll.
This official Peter Rabbit site from Penguin Books is my Beatrix Potter pick of the day. The
Beatrix Potter section covers her life and her art, including the display of several pages from
her childhood sketch books. For oodles of activities that will charm young Peter Rabbit fans,
click on over to Fun. My favourite clicks include six online games.. But the five illustrated,
audio stories found in Storytime top them all.
