It's a sunny afternoon and the Rabbit family are having a picnic.
The pond is sparkling in the sunshine and Peter wants to build a raft - all by himself. He soon finds it's quite tricky without some help. Luckily his sisters are there to lend him a hand.
This charming summer tale has a reassuring message about learning to ask for help. Eleanor Taylor's humorous illustrations of Beatrix Potter's well-loved characters mirror young children's early experiences.
Beatrix Potter is one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902) she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs Tiggy-winkle, Mr Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood.
A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.
A fun, summery Peter Rabbit story about a day by the pond.
