Peter Rabbit Animation Book Series Review

The Tale of Peter Rabbit is one of the first books I remember from my childhood. The stories of Peter Rabbit and his friends are timeless and loved by many. When CBeebies started showing Peter Rabbit an animated series I was delighted.

Peter Rabbit is a character that children will be able to relate to. It is a story based around friendship. The television programme stays true to the feel of the original books while ensuring the storylines are still engaging and appeal to all. The animations are about Peter Rabbit and his friends in the beautiful Lake District where they go on plenty of adventures whilst having a lot of fun.

A selection of books have also been released based on the animation series, the books are colourful and easy to read stories. We have been lucky enough to be sent a selection of the books to review.

Peter Rabbit Books

The books we have been sent are Peter Rabbit Animation: Let’s Go! Sticker Story Book, Peter Rabbit: Treehouse Rescue! and Peter Rabbit: Happy Christmas!    

The sticker story book is full of people and places from their world, the book contains plenty of stickers, over 150, which you can add to scenes, there are games and lots of activities included in this book. I really like this sticker activity book, it tells a lovely story and we enjoyed doing the activities together, E thought It was great fun putting stickers on whilst reading the story.

Sticker Book

We were also sent The Peter Rabbit Club, a book with lovely colourful pictures and the story is about  how Peter and his friends embark on a brave and dangerous quest for a secret clubhouse to escape the clutches of the hungry fox, Mr Tod. To help him on his adventures, Peter is never without his cousin Benjamin Bunny and their good friend Lily Bobtail.

Th Peter Rabbbit Club Book

The book is fun to read and the colourful pictures captivated E. She kept pointing out Mr Tod when we came across him. This is definitely a story book that would appeal to most ages, I find it a joy to read. At the back of the book there are suggestions on how to make your own secret clubhouse for both inside and outside. I am sure the blankets will be coming out soon to try to make our own secret clubhouse.

The other book we have been sent is Peter Rabbit :Happy Christmas. This Christmas story is about the troubles Peter Rabbit gets into whilst trying to deliver Christmas presents. Luckily his friends are there to help him out in this little adventure.

Peter Rabbit christmas book

This book is a board book, which is great for little fingers. The pages are really sturdy and colourful. As there are not too many words on each page, it makes this short story great for younger children.

E loves this book the most, I think it is because it is a Christmas story. She spends a lot of time looking at this book on her own.

The Animated Peter Rabbit Books are wonderful. I cannot fault them, amazing stories, great pictures and they stay true to the original book. I whole heartedly recommend adding these books to your child’s book collection.

There is also a great website where you will find lots of activities and games to play, there is also lots of news from Peter Rabbit and friends in their burrow. Peter Rabbit Club

For more information and to buy these wonderful books head over to the puffin website.

Disclosure – We received the books to review, however all thoughts and words are my own.

    Beautiful story of two little bunnies and a wonderful innocent friendship that turns to love and a quaint little wedding. Such a simple story but so beautifully written. Ive had this book for 30 years, my mother read it to be and I have read it to my two children I would love for them to find happiness in the way these two little bunnies did.
