If you're looking for quality books, it doesn't get better than this. Expand your collection of quality literature, either to read to your young children, or for slightly older children to read to themselves. Enjoy!
A classic, absolutely impossible tall tale. It will win your child's heart — and maybe yours, too!
A young farm boy and his sheep grow up together. Touching, beautifully crafted, thought-provoking.
When Babe is taken in by Farmer Hogget's sheepdog, Fly, it's only natural he would want to follow in his foster mum's paw-steps. Even with considerable handicaps as a sheepdog (namely, he's a pig) he manages to overcome all with his earnestly polite and soft-spoken ways, proving once again that might doesn't always make right. After saving the sheep from rustlers and wild dogs, Babe convinces Hogget that his idea of becoming a sheep-pig might not be so silly after all. No one could have predicted what follows.
A warm story about an asocial recluse who finally wins friends when he builds and moves into a cottage in the forest.
