The Animal Hedge
We go to the library at least once a week and come home with armloads of wonderful books. Once in a while we get an extra-wonderful book. This is one of them: The Animal Hedge.
I just knew from looking at the pictures standing in the library that this was one of those books where you try not to cry while your are reading it to your 5 year old. Listen to the first line:
"There once lived a farmer whose heart glowed like a hot wood stove with the love of animals."
I don't like to clutter up my bookshelves with a lot of Twaddle. This is a keeper.
