The Adventures of Peter Rabbit & Benjamin Bunny
The Adventures of Peter Rabbit & Benjamin Bunny (Mindscape – ages 3-7), offers two tales, one about Peter Rabbit and the other about his cousin Benjamin Bunny. The hares get into lots of mischief against the backdrop of a pastoral British estate, encountering myriad activities for your child to play along the way. Catching onions with a handkerchief, playing a “Concentration” variation with cabbages, listening to nursery rhymes, and pretending to make snacks may not sound like much excitement, but the charm of Beatrix Potter’s book has made the leap to CD-ROM easily, due in large part to the inclusion of the original illustrations. In case things aren’t quite charming enough, you can choose to hear the story in British English instead of American English. Sedate and always pleasant, The Adventures of Peter Rabbit & Benjamin Bunny alternate, in the best British tradition, between being rather dull and being genuinely enchanting.
