The story of choice for one wing of the grandkids right now is “Peter Rabbit” by Beatrix Potter.
Part of the attraction is the sheer scandal of it all.
Every time an adult reads the story, the kids exude wide-eyed disbelief that a bunny disobeyed his mother (gasp!), ventured into Mr. McGregor’s garden (gasp!) and safely made it home again (the sweet exhale).
