James Herriot’s Treasury for Children by James Herriot (1992)

Yes, here I am again recommending ANOTHER book by James Herriot!

james herriot.jpgIf your children are too young for the All Creatures Great and Small etc. books, James Herriot’s Treasury for Children is a darling collection of short stories with gorgeous illustrations for young children.  I bought this at Sam’s Club back in the 90s, and enjoyed reading it with my son many times when he was little.  Now I pull it off the shelf any time my grandchildren are visiting and we snuggle on the couch for a little time with Moses the kitten, Bonny the show-horse, or Smudge the little lost lamb — and 5 more stories.

James Herriot’s Treasury for Children appears to be out of print, but you can probably find it at your library, your mom or grandma’s house or from several third-party sellers at Amazon.

Read-aloud for early grader readers, 260 pages, Published in 1992.
