James Herriot’s Treasury for Children by James Herriot

This collection includes all eight of James Herriot’s picture books for children collected in one volume. James Herriot is possibly my favorite author. His series of books beginning with All Creatures Great and Small tell of his life as a vet in rural Yorkshire, England, in the 1930s to the 1970s and are full of warmth and love and humor, as well as heartbreak. Anyone who is an animal lover will be captivated by his books. These picture books share some of Herriot’s wonderful stories about his life as a vet, but are written specifically for children. They teach love and respect for nature and for all animals and also tell entertaining, funny, heart-warming stories with magnificent illustrations. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
