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.

Delightful

I was looking for a relaxing feel good book and came across this collection of animal stories for children by James Herriot. The book is good for all ages as the language is not written down for children. There is also a story of the “Christmas Day Kitten”. Most appropriate for my December reading/listening.

The book is one and a half hours. Was so great to listen to Jim Dale narrate the book. Dale is the “Voice of Harry Potter” as he narrated all of that series. Dale won two Grammy awards, seven Grammy nominations and ten Audie Awards. He is an English actor, singer and audiobook narrator. He also won a Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical in 1980. Dale was recently inducted into the 2017 Audible Narrator Hall of Fame .
