Hop into the English Reading World with Peter Rabbit

Ever since The Tale of Peter Rabbit was published in 1902, the mischievous little rabbit created by Beatrix Potter has been one of the favorite characters of children's literature, beloved by readers around the world. Considered as the first modern English picture book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit captivated the imagination of British children, and raised a tide of enthusiasm for picture books. Beatrix Potter wrote 24 illustrated children's tales in total, a collection that remains as popular today, with readers of all ages, as when she first created them.
July 28th, 2016 will be the 150th anniversary of Beatrix Potter's birth, and will be marked by many celebratory events in Britain and America. In order to promote English reading and encourage parents and children to enjoy reading together, the Tainan City Government is joining this international celebration by holding a series of Peter Rabbit themed English reading events.
This summer, the Tainan English Reading Festival will feature an exhibition on The World of Peter RabbitTM, plus a fun-filled schedule of events including over 100 presentations of Peter Rabbit's Story Time and 11 sessions of the Talks on Learning English with Fun, accompanied by a reward program for children, to inspire parents and children to learn and use English together. Tainan City Government warmly invites everyone to join the festival for a summer of unforgettable enjoyment.
