All Creatures Great and Small, James Herriot

5 stars
Herriot is a master story teller and this 442 page memoir of his early veterinarian practice in the Yorkshire Dales of northern England is filled with delightful and poignant adventures. The boys and I used this as part of our science curriculum this semester and are excited to pick up his next memoir in the series. Filled with colorful characters, suspense, humor, death, life, love, and plenty of animals - this book is a great read - one that causes you to want to go and care for the people and animals in your own life and live well.
