" This is the most lovely collection of children’s stories and the illustrations are stunning. I have read these stories over and over to my children and they continue to listen to them on audio. Every child must have this collection in their library. " said.

" Great collection of short stories culled from Herriot's books that are interesting enough to capture a young child's interest. Some were so loved, that my son begged me to read them several times. A good book for encouraging compassion for the animals of God's kingdom that we might encounter and the rewards that this compassion might bring in our lives. " said.

" I read this aloud to my 3 and 4 year olds (girl and boy respectively) over the course of a few days. They loved the stories and we have since re-read several of them. These stories are gentle, humorous, and tender—wonderful for any age, (except for the youngest of readers). Our overall favorite was "Smudge, the lost lamb." The illustrations are wonderful! " said.

" This is a beautiful book with beautiful pictures that is great great option for when you are transitioning your kiddos to chapter books by working on listening through longer stories. My kiddos greatly enjoyed the stories about all the animals and the vet who took care of them all in Yorkshire. Highly recommend for 3-5 year old kiddos. Would love to own this book. " said.

"Such a wonderful book! I really like that the stories are more realistic - none of the animals talk or do human things, they're just animals that need help. There are some sad moments, but mostly happy and fun, and the sad moments are realistic and those that a child could easily experience with a pet of theirs. The illustrations are wonderful as well, and done in a more realistic style as opposed to a cartoon. This is a sweet, gentle book that highlights the importance of animals in our lives, especially to the farming community that Dr. Herriot serves. Highly Recommended!" said.

" Delightful animal stories my daughter loved them all-especially the kitty stories. We will definitely be readying again! " said.

" This is the sort of book you curl up with on a chilly rainy day with a mug of warm tea and a dog by your side or a cat on your lap. A must read for everyone. " said.

"Why I Choose this Book

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.
