    Beatrix Potter was truly a woman ahead of her time. Not only was she a talented storyteller, her illustrations were perfect. Her stories for children are timeless and enjoyed by generation after generation. Leaving her estate to the National Trust was magnificent and generous. What a marvelous person!

  6. Catherine Osborne Says:

    My heart is bursting with passion. Miss Potter is one of my all time favorites. As innocent and pure are writings an drawings, no one will ever be to old for her stories. I, personally
    was born to the wrong era . . . People were more passionate, self-seeing. As was Miss Potter was not pretensions most every one is during these years of self indulgence. Holidays is nothing of love thy neighbor, rather it’s a time of push and shove . . . Give me that, get out of my way! Children screaming and crying. Adults teaching children selfishness, and greedy. Now-a-days People today only see their selfish beings. Nothing is as it was . . . nothing!

  8. Cheryl M. Spillman Says:

    I enjoyed reading Miss Potter’s storys as a child and will never be too old to read them again. Also I didn’t know that she was also a scientist. What a revelation! Some people have hidden talents that we are not aware of; it makes Miss Potter multidementional instead of just one sided.
