Down the lush green slopes of a beautiful hill, the river flowed down gently. On a sandbank nearby, underneath the root of a huge fir tree, lived Mrs. Rabbit and her four dear children. Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, and Peter. Mrs. Rabbit was quite happy and confident on the way their life was going on, but the only one thing that kept her bothered was her little Peter Rabbit. This is the Tale of Peter Rabbit and his mischievous adventures.
One fine morning, Mrs. Rabbit had to visit the Baker’s for some loaf and buns. So, she called together her four little ones and said, you can go into the fields or down the lane, but never get into Mr. McGregor's garden. As your father had an accident there, he was put in a pie by Mrs. McGregor. Saying this, the old rabbit carried her basket and umbrella along and walked down the woods.
Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail went down the lane together to collect some blackberries. But mischievous little Peter ran straight into Mr. McGregor's garden. Hungry he was, so he started eating at their garden. First, he had some lettuces and french beans and then he went on to radishes and felt sick after having them. So, he went in search of some parsley which he thought, would ease his sick feeling and just as he was about to round the end of a cucumber frame, he walked into Mr. McGregor himself.
Mr. Gregor was busy planting young cabbages. As soon as he saw a rabbit in his garden, he jumped up and ran after Peter with a rake. Peter became so frightened that he ran all over the garden and forgot the way back. He lost his shoes in the chase and had to run on four legs. He ran so fast that he got stuck in a gooseberry net. With gathered courage, he put in all efforts to set himself free from that net, but all in vain.
How did Peter save himself from Mr. Gregor? Could he find the way out of the garden and reach home? What could have happened after all this and what lesson did Peter learn from this? is the moral to be read.
In My Opinion:
This ebook will make children listen, understand, and act to their parent’s terms. Children will understand the importance of listening to their parents. My favorite part is the last part of the story. Children need not experience all this when a short story like Peter Rabbit stands as an example to explain.
Kids between 3 to 5 yrs would love to read this ebook as it presents them with moral of the situations the rabbit’s faced and learned.
I highly recommend this eBook to all children as I think that this will make them listen to their parent’s first, and act next.
