    I don't always read a Christmas story this time of year but when I do I like it to be gushingly heartwarming perhaps naively innocent and if you want to throw a moral in there for good measure by all means Treasury for Children Warm and Joyful Tales by the Author of All Creatures Great and Small has all that and to spare How can it not? I mean just look at that titleDoes this shout Christmas to you? Perhaps not but at least one of the stories happens during Christmas and others have a winter time setting And besides stories don't have to be about Christmas to feel like it Now if you'll excuse me I'd like to digress Is this real life? I often find myself asking that whenever I read a James Herriot book James Alfred Alf Wight aka James Herriot wrote some lovely stories based upon his career as an animal vet in the Yorkshire Dales up there in northern England Not all of his stories are true Clearly in this collection of shorts at least one is a complete fabrication of his own design However it's also clear to me anyhow that most of what happens in these charming tales uite likely could have happened to a country vet and uite likely did happen to Herriot Why is this important? Search me but I guess it maybe has something to do with my need to attach significance to the subjects the animals In all of his books there is life and death and it's important to me that these things contain all the weight and importance they deserve Digression OverIn summary if you're looking for an uplifting read this holiday season you can't go wrong with this one or honestly any of Herriot's books Don't let the for Children part of the title throw you This book is for young and oldhell it's even for us grumpy middle aged farts

    I was looking for a relaxing feel good book and came across this collection of animal stories for children by James Herriot The book is good for all ages as the language is not written down for children There is also a story of the “Christmas Day Kitten” Most appropriate for my December readinglisteningI read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible The book is one and a half hours Was so great to listen to Jim Dale narrate the book Dale is the “Voice of Harry Potter” as he narrated all of that series Dale won two Grammy awards seven Grammy nominations and ten Audie Awards He is an English actor singer and audiobook narrator He also won a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical in 1980 Dale was recently inducted into the 2017 Audible Narrator Hall of Fame

    Eight delightful animal stories for all ages There are cats and dogs of course but also a cow who finds its way home an elderly horse and an adventurous lamb who discovers that there's no place like home I loved listening to the narration by Jim Dale best known for his reading of the Harry Potter books

    This has been one of my favorite children's books ever I read it to my children now teenagers countless times The illustrations are gorgeous and the stories are an absolute delight

    We are homeschoolers that use many ideas from the Charlotte Mason style of teaching This book was my daughter's assigned reading for literature during 2nd grade She is a bit behind in her reading skills so this would probably be 1st grade reading level for most Charlotte Mason homeschoolers She would read for 15 minutes each day and then narrate orally to me what she had read about It took her about three weeks to complete this bookI liked this book because it was the first I've found that I could get my daughter to read each day without a battle She is an animal lover and enjoyed all the cute animal stories in this collection The writing is simple and easy for a beginning reader without being boring There are also lots of colorful illustrations to assist the child with envisioning what they are reading There is also nothing of uestionable morality in this book that would make a parent nervous about their child reading it always an important point for meOver all a good book that I will probably use again for my younger children

    I'm on my third read through these stories as an adult and they just become dearer to me every time Sweet tender stories of the animals of the farms in the Yorkshire dales and the vet who loved to learn of their personalities and eccentricities

    Absolutely wonderful Heartwarming old fashioned stories with lovely illustrations My boys loved them as much as I did

    Normally don't say I'm currently reading picture books or comic books on here because they either take a day to read them or I stopped counting them for my goal Made an exception with this one though Yes this was easy to read and you can easily finish this in a day or two but for a picture book this isn't just for kids Adults who like animals can enjoy these stories as well Some of these stories aren't even about children but adults with animals I liked the message in most of these too that some people don't treat farm animals as farm animals but rather treat them as pets or part of the family

    Such a charming way to introduce kids to the wonderful stories of James Herriot These are some selected tales suitable for children beautifully presented with full color illustrations I liked that they weren't just stories about household pets but also about farm animals I do wish that there had been a Tricky Woo story though since those are my kids' favorites from the adult books

    The best This is what children's classics are all about And I am fully aware that the are extracts from his adult series The illustration with the story telling is top notch True art The narration with Jim Dale is unbeatable Pure magic
