Book Sharing Monday :: The Tailor of Gloucester

Celeste and I have been enjoying the wonderful little stories by Beatrix Potter early in the morning this past week, while everyone else is still sleeping. "The Tailor of Gloucester" is her favourite so far. It is so nice to see her enjoying these stories and asking for more. I have tried a few times to share these with her, but she never showed too much interest, but now, she is asking for them!
Andre discovered Beatrix Potter and her stories a couple of years ago. We had a couple of them, and we started collecting, picking up titles whenever we saw them at thrift stores. He even completed a lapbook about Beatrix Potter.

"The tailor worked and worked, and he talked to himself. He measured the silk, and turned it round and round, and trimmed it into shape with his shears; the table was all littered with cherry-coloured snippets.
"No breadth at all, and cut on the cross; it is no breadth at all; tippets for mice and ribbons for mobs! for mice!" said the Tailor of Gloucester."

  1. Beatrix Potter stories are mostly lovely, but when I read "Squirrel Nutkin" to my son (he was 6 at the time), he said, "Mom, that's just disturbing." LOL

  2. I have been following your blog for a while and enjoying it. I am hosting an art giveaway that you might find interesting. Stop by when you have a chance and take a look.

  3. All of the Beatrix Potter stories are fantastic - and bring back all the memories of when I heard them as a child. Nothing like standing the test of time!


I ♥ comments! Thank you for stopping by.
