    "Wonderful Stories"

    These heartfelt stories are wonderful to listen to anytime. The soothing nature of the narrator's voice is very calming for my children and was an unexpected benefit! Great purchase!

    "Cozy"

    Being a delivery person I sometimes get a bit lonely on the road for hours by myself. I loved having this beautifully read collection of stories for company today and can't wait for my children to hear them as well.

    I run/knit/swim/climb/watch Bollywood when not driven to the brink of insanity by homeschooled children who think and talk far too much.

    Story
    "Favorite stories made even better!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of James Herriot's Treasury for Children to be better than the print version?

    Actually, yes. As an American, I can't imagine the Yorkshire accents just from the printed word. Jim Dale's reading is quite excellent, though his James Herriot doesn't sound as Scottish as often described in the books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of James Herriot's Treasury for Children?

    That would be a spoiler.


    What about Jim Dale’s performance did you like?

    Timing, accent, voices.
