  James Herriot's Treasury for Children
Lauren of Salem, OR, 8/28/2016
James Herriot does a an exceptional job writing about the playful pets and gentle farm animals from his days as a veterinarian. He well describes the countryside, animals, and their friendly owners. His warm, satisfactory storytelling gives the feeling that everything will turn out all right. Accompanied by gorgeous paintings, these stories are a comforting read for adults and children alike.
