In 1866, Beatrix Potter was born in London to Mancunian parents. She had a great interest in the natural sciences, but her career in academia was stalled. However, her detailed and accurate drawings of fungi are still admired and used today. Her children’s books grew out of the imaginative letters she sent to the children of her former governess. She wrote and drew the series from the beginning of the twentieth century until the end of World War I, when she turned her attention to sheep farming on her land in the Lake District. After her death in 1943, she left her lands to the National Trust, where they are still enjoyed by daytrippers and holidaymakers today. Born into a wealthy household, Potter was educated by governesses and grew up isolated from other children. She had numerous pets, and through holidays in Scotland and the Lake District, developed a love of landscape, flora, and fauna, all of which she closely observed and painted. Because she was a woman, her parents discouraged intellectual development, but her study and paintings of fungi led her to be widely respected in the field of mycology. Appley Dapply's Nursery Rhymes - Beatrix Potter loved nursery rhymes, and planned a collection of them as the follow-up to The Tale of Peter Rabbit. However, after her editor and fiancé Norman Warne died in 1905, the project was set aside. When her publisher faced financial ruin in 1917, the book was resurrected, and remains a classic for the very young.At Books2Door, we believe that reading is a fundamental skill that every child should have to help improve their vocabulary, grammar, and critical thinking skills.
