You will not find better children's books. Thornton W. Burgess books are second only to the Bible. They give children a love for animals and a compass for life. Burgess is truly inspired by Jesus Christ and a lover of children.

Images are included. There are * where quotes are used and "carrots" where question marks may have been. It still seems readable so we are keeping to see how it goes.
