Our family got this book when I was a little itty bitty girl and who know how many childhood hours were spent pouring over this book and learning to love the art of storytelling through it's beautiful and enticing pages.
Last year I bought myself a copy so that if I ever have a family of my own I'll be able to share it with them, as well. It's that good.
What I Thought about this Book
I think this will forever be one of my favorite children's books. From the paintings to the words choices to the stories that are told, everything is filled with a phenomenal amount of beauty. The whole book is like a piece of artwork.
I'm pretty sure that some of my love for animals came from within the pages of this book. Often times during my teenage years when I had a goat farm with my brother and we would be up late at night playing vet to a sick or laboring goat I would remember the stories that had captivated me as a child and realize that I was living that life and it would make me happy.
Y'all should really get a copy and read if for yourselves.
I'm giving James Herriot's Treasury for Children five stars and I recommend it to children of all ages.
When the book "James Herriot's Treasury for children" came out, I could not think of a better way to introduce my nieces and my daughter to James Herriot's writing and the animals around him. The children love the stories and illustrations. But no matter how hard I tried, I could never be good at imitating the Yorkshire farmer's accent.
When I found that an audio version of this book was available through Amazon, I was very excited the thought this would complete my James Herriot collection. However, I was puzzled that Christopher Timothy did not narrate this book. Not knowing Jim Dale's previous work, I was skeptical about the quality of his narration. Now I am glad that I was wrong.
Christopher Timothy has been wonderful with all his work, but I think Jim Dale is more suitable for this book whose target audience are mostly children. There is so much feeling and emotion in his voice that makes the stories even more captivating than they already were. While listening to "The Christmas Day Kitten", I found myself sobbing at the end of story as if I had lost my own pet.
James Herriot's books combine good story-telling, passion and kindness to every living thing. This book will do just that for your children. The audio CD will simply add more magic to his stories.
