I own a few of her books, so I thought that after the movie, I'd read them, even though I've read some of them before. Potter is a delightful story teller, adding her sense of whit and humor throughout the books. Mom even started looking and reading through the books when I was done. I think it's true to say, "Once a teacher, always a teacher." If you haven't seen the movie or read a lot of the books yet, do so right away. You and your family will learn a lot about history, art, nature, and be exposed to a series of classic literature.

Time with Miss Potter
As my recovery continues, Mom and I have been trying to fill our time with things that I can do. One of the first things we did was watch the movie, Miss Potter. She had never seen it and I knew she would love it! While it's not a focus of mine to recommend entertainment on my blog, I must say that this movie is one that is well-worth your time and attention. Mom is a former kindergarten teacher like me, and so we just love reading children's books. We are both into art, so Beatrix Potter is up there on our list of top-classic literature.
