Results of school survey
“Do you know Beatrix Potter?”
3 possible reasons why kids don’t know Beatrix Potter:
1. They didn’t read her books.
2. They read her books but they don’t know the author.
3. They know her as an author but they are not interested in her biography.
They didn’t read her books: little kids at the age of 2 or 3 would like to read Beatrix Potter’s books but the language might be to hard for the little kids to understand.

I would like to say thanks for my mother who helped me with my writing and to Angela Bettink, she is a Trustee at The Beatrix Potter Society, for giving me an advice on where I can find the information that I needed. Also I would like to say thanks to my teacher Robert Castle or as my class calls him Mr.Castle for letting me to do the survey in my class and answering some of my questions. And thanks to my father who helped me with the computer technology.
