Beatrix Potter's passion for the natural world lay behind the creation of her famous tales. A particular source of inspiration was the Lake District, where she lived for the last 30 years of her life as a farmer and conservationist. This treasure trove includes "Peter Rabbit", "The Tailor of Gloucester", "Squirrel Nutkin", "Two Bad Mice", "Mrs. Tiggy Winkle", "Benjamin Bunny", "Jeremy Fisher", "Jemimah Puddleduck", "The Flopsy Bunnies", "Ginger and Pickles", and "Mr. Toad".

The stories are classics and though we are often drawn to Beatrix Potter's books for the beautiful illustrations, the stories very much hold attention in the recorded format.
Flo Gibson captivated our children, years ago, with her readings & now she is captivating another generation in our family. Her unique voice holds the attention & can also be soothing.
Though the Potter books are aimed at the youngest generation, I found myself not wanting to leave the room until the end of the tale.
