James Herriot
Illustrated by Ruth Brown & Peter Barrett

If you have a soft spot in your heart for animals, this is your book. (Tip: almost all children love animal stories.) And perhaps more convincingly, James Herriot, the beloved veterinarian/author, is the one responsible for this absolute find of a storybook. His big heart and wholesome sense of humor shine in this collection of 8 tales about animals: cats, dogs, horses, lambs, pigs and cows. In story after story, we meet down-to-earth folks who have a deep respect for the 4-footed creatures in their lives, and who have personalities (human and animal) that just have to make you smile.

Set in the English countryside, the stories have a lovely purity that is rarely found. You'll meet a rescued-from-the-cold kitten who is brought back to life among a litter of piglets; a sheepdog that barks only once in its life - but what a once!; a cow that won't take "no" for an answer, and more. This book is perfect to cuddle up with, giggle over, and enjoy over and over again. I can almost guarantee that this will be a favorite in your home. The story chair will get a workout after all of the hours you spend with your child, loving this big, long, delightful book.
