Happy Birthday, Beatrix Potter

Today, July 28, marks the birthday of English author, illustrator and natural scientist Beatrix Potter. Born in 1866, she, of course, is best known for her children’s books, especially “The Tale of Peter Rabbit.”

Born into a wealthy family, she exhibited her artistic talents early on.  She wrote and published privately ” Peter Rabbit” in 1901.  A year later a small, three-color edition was published by Frederick Warne & Co.

We have 13 Beatrix Potter books in our children’s collection.  Most are small in size just right for little hands.  9780723247739_p0_v1_s192x300
