This charming title defines family listening. Herriot’s well-loved tales of his life as a rural British veterinarian hold the timeless qualities of family affection, humor, loyalty, appreciation for nature, and love of animals. The eight short stories were selected especially for youngsters, yet adults will gladly listen along. Narrator extraordinaire Dale lends the perfect avuncular tone; his British dialects accurately reflect the characters’ class and region, and his clarity of expression allows even young listeners to comprehend the delightful British accent. Sprightly musical interludes signal transitions between stories; each is approximately 10 minutes long. The CD consists of only one track, so locating individual stories is somewhat difficult. Be sure to feature this title in holiday displays as “The Christmas Kitten” is especially appealing. Grades K-6. --Mary Burkey --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
“Just the sort of thing you hope will imprint on the memory screen of a young child: fresh, clear, pure, and good.” ―Commonwealth
