The new year is upon and with it the fast approach of many wonderful titles that will soon be gracing your TBR piles, I've no doubt. While the excitement and anticipation is grand, it can also have you feeling the "heat" (well, not literally, since it was like 28 degrees this morning and yeah, it didn't really warm up...) as you try to get each book read by your deadline. Whether self-imposed or in advance of a book's release, the pressure is on. Now I love the challenge of it all, but I also love my reading time and thus have to walk that fine line between getting a book done and ENJOYING the book. No worries though, thus far, the balance struck is working out, which leads me to the subject of this post. The featured title today is a classic for certain! By age alone, it has stood the test of time....although this was MY first time reading it! (GASP!) Today's book of choice is....
That being said, I LOVED the artwork! My copy is a small pocket size edition of the book, but the illustrations lost absolutely none of their beauty. I've included a few in this post for your viewing pleasure. (Go ahead, take a moment to gaze at them in wonder........still looking? Okay, a few moments more.........okay, if you're not done yet, you can go back to them in a second as I am almost done.) All in all, I would recommend this for younger readers, but also those who love the classic Beatrix Potter story style.
Speaking of classic children's stories, fables, and the like....what are some of your favorites that have stuck with you through the years? From Jack and the Beanstalk to Peter Rabbit, there is bound to be at least one that you still remember...feel free to share!
Until next time....happy reading!
