Beatrix Potter by Jeanette Winter

Winter, Jeanette. Beatrix Potter. New York: Frances Foster, 2003.

In this short biography of the woman who wrote Peter Rabbit, Jeanette Winter draws from Potter’s own letter and journals to construct the tales (as it were) of the author.

What I thought: Utterly charming and quite perfect for a Beatrix Potter’s many small fans. I liked that Winter did not try to mimic Potter’s illustration style. Her illustrations suit the biography perfectly.

Story Time Idea: Beatrix Potter program- read this biography along with some of Potter’s tales.
