I loved reading "The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit" to my children 30 years ago and now often use it as a baby or early birthday gift. It is the Beatix Potter book with the very fewest words per page. Children are introduced to Ms. Potter's wonderful use of the English language at an age in which their attention span is SHORT! The pages turn quickly for earliest listening experiences for toddlers. Some may object to the hunter and gun references in the story, but all is well in the end, and the little ones in my experience have loved this beautiful book.
