As a young girl I loved all the Beatrix Potter stories. I think it was where my love of watercolor began with her illustrations, and also the illustrations in my Beginning Reader of Dick and Jane. When the movie "Miss Potter" came out I saw it, and bought it, and have watched it many times. I also loved ready the biography's of Beatrix Potter. What a woman, what a story, what enjoyment she has brought to so many. I've been collecting her books and have a set of her miniature books.
All that background to say I found a treasure at the Thrift Store today. A large book in pristine condition. No marks anywhere on or in it. "The Great Big Treasury of Beatrix Potter" was published in 1992 and contains 19 of her stories and illustrations. It was $1.99 and I've been reading it to myself all afternoon. Do you like Beatrix stories? Have you seen the movie...I think you'll love it.
I can't wait to read these stories to our new grandbaby when he/she is old enough!!
