Just in time for the holidays, the “Peter Rabbit’s Christmas Tale” takes Peter and his pal Benjamin Bunny around Lake District delivering presents and supplies to their friends after Mr. Bouncer gets sick.

But between braving a blizzard and keeping a watch out for the sneaky Mr. Fox, they realize hopping around town isn’t so easy.

Each episode focuses on a series of age-appropriate goals (from problem-solving to skill-building) while nurturing a love of nature among its preschool viewers.

Can’t wait for this sweet show to start? For sneak peeks of the holiday special, plus coloring pages, stickers and activity packs, visit Nickjr.com.
