Childhood Memories – Peter Rabbit Story Video: A Family Favorite
Peter Rabbit was always a favorite of mine as a child. I especially remember Mom giving a great moral after this story. “That’s what you get when you don’t obey your mother.” Many of the old illustrated books were used to highlight points that a parent might make with a child.
Childhood Memories – Peter Rabbit Story Video: Sharing with Grand-children
One of the joys I have when finding old copies of illustrated books I read as a child is retelling the tales to my children and grand-children. I made the video for my grand-children, and my three year old great grand-daughter told me, “I like it Poppy.”
My great grand-daughter loves donning my glasses and pretending to be Professor Brown. I featured her in the video.
Childhood Memories – Peter Rabbit Story Video: Reading Creates Strong Ties
It never ceases to amaze me that doing simple things with children creates strong ties. I truly enjoy watching my grand-children grab a book when they come in the door and say, “Read it to me, Grandpa.” Once story-time begins I might have four or five children on my lap. (I must have a big lap…I guess that’s one advantage of being large.)
Childhood Memories – Peter Rabbit Story Video: Enlarge the Video
I like enlarging the video to fit the entire computer screen and playing it. I am surprised how many times a small child will say, “Play it again, Grandpa.” I never tire of looking into their faces as they watch their favorite part of the video and light up. Ah, the simple pleasures in life.
