James Herriot (1916-1995) was the bestselling author of memoirs including All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, All Things Wise and Wonderful, and Every Living Thing. At age 23, Herriot qualified for veterinary practice with the Glasgow Veterinary College, and moved to the town of Thirsk in Yorkshire to work in a rural practice. He would live in, work in, and write about the region for the rest of his life. Though he dreamed for years of writing a book, his veterinary work and his family kept him busy, and he did not start writing until the age of 50. In 1979, he was awarded the title Order of the British Empire (OBE). His veterinary practice in Yorkshire, England, is now tended by his son, Jim Wight.

James Herriot was born in 1916 and died in 1995.

Reviews - What do customers think about James Herriot's Treasury of Inspirational Stories for Children?

Tender-hearted peak at the past  Apr 2, 2007
We bought this for our niece. The stories are heart-warming, but also sometimes realistically heart-breaking. I think it'll help any child develop sympathy and respect for other animals, plus city kids will get a glimpse of farm life.
We had read the comments about it being hard to read and understand, so my fiance read me a story from it before we wrapped it up and sent it out. We did get some good laughs from him trying to pronounce a few things. The problem isn't that the words are big, its that the author is doing a good job of recreating an accent and cultural slang that us americans haven't heard before. I think its probably healthy for parents and kids alike to be exposed to a different culture and way of talking. And even if you miss a few words, you'll still understand each story as a whole.
Parents should try reading Herriot's adult novels, too!
Heart warming stories  Jan 1, 2007
My children and I cuddle under a warm blanket and read these stories over and over. You'll laugh and cry. Everyone should have this book!
