Everyone has a hero and mine is Beatrix Potter.
Did you know that when she was 27 she began writing letters to entertain the child of a former governess? The child, Noel Moors, was in bed recovering from scarlet fever. She illustrated the letters with little drawings of rabbits, squirrels and other tiny creatures. This was the beginning of Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, and the hedgehog Mrs. Tiggy Winkle.
The children loved those letters and the stories so much that Beatrix decided to turn the story of Peter Rabbit into a book and the rest is history.
Most people recognize her by photographs like this one
This, however, is my favorite picture of her
And this film I have seen a million times.
Never get tired of watching it.
How about you?
Who's your hero?
