Peter Rabbit at the Farm and How Peter Rabbit Went to Sea
Kinder Cottage ReviewKinder Cottage Review

These 5x7 full color, hardback books ideal for children ages 3-9.  At just $4 each, you can collect the whole set!  Written by Duff Graham for the Henry Altemus Company in the early 1900s, these delightful children's tales all feature the ever mischievous, but so lovable Peter Rabbit.

The Bentz Test Laboratory were all introduced to Peter and his siblings - Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail at very early ages.  A long time family favorite!  

Kinder Cottage Publishing prints and sells 10 of these delightful storybooks.  We were blessed to get a chance to preview Peter Rabbit at the Farm and How Peter Rabbit Went to Sea.  

In Peter Rabbit at the Farm, Peter meets many new friends on the farm like: Polly Possom, with her polite manners, Little Goosie Poosie, who needs Peter's help and repays the favor when Peter finds himself in need of help, and Silvertail, who surprises Peter.  Of course, Peter runs into Mr. McGregor and finds himself in a predicament!  Once safely home, Peter shares his adventures with his family and sweetly falls asleep while Old Mother Rabbit is tucking him in.

How Peter Rabbit Went to Sea - Peter is sent on an errand, but quickly forgets about his mother's instructions (anyone...anyone?).  My testers enjoyed seeing Peter get a spanking for his disobedience, another subtle lesson being taught. But, apparently Peter did not learn his lesson the first time, and runs off to another adventure.  This adventure introduces him to more characters like Old Granddaddy Whale, Old Man Shark, and Johnny Crab. Rescued by Sammie Seagull, Peter is returned to his family.  Peter can't wait to be put to bed, safe and sound by his mother.

My testers loved both of these books and are eager to hear more of Peter's adventures.  These sturdy, hard cover books are sure to become a family treasure. 

I love how these wholesome stories can teach an important lesson, without preaching it!  The classic illustrations are vintage, colorful and inviting.  There's just something timeless in these books and stories that you will want to share with your children.

You will want to have the entire collection!
