    "I have always loved this story! It brings such joy to me when I read it. I believe this is a book everyone could benefit from reading. Especially young ones. I particularly enjoy how the story shows you that just because you start out with one way of thinking doesn't mean you never are allowed to change when you find a better way. Mary and Colin both start in circumstances that seem beyond their control. However, when they see a better way instead off doing as they have always done they choose to change. In the end not only are they better but all who know them are changed for the better as well. This story is always a good choice"

    "The story in this book is of a doctor that travels the world and he takes care of many different animals. The story isn't really about Christian related material, but I think the moral aspect of the story does make it perfectly compatible. I would still recommend this story since most kids will enjoy reading about the animals and how the doctor was able to help them. Overall this is an excellent read. "

She would be gone just long enough to teach her parents a lesson in Claudia appreciation. And she would go in comfort-she would live at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She saved her money, and she invited her brother Jamie to go, mostly because be was a miser and would have money. Claudia was a good organizer and Jamie bad some ideas, too; so the two took up residence at the museum right on schedule.

    "Not my preferred genre, but a good representation of the books history. This book can be a little hard to read to due the old fanshion language at times, but it plays a very good coming of age theme in a very harsh era the was a tough time in american history. Should be in anyone's classics section of their library."

    "Is this a Christian book? If so, it's too subtle for children to pick up. Gorgeous book and story and one that I enjoy reading even as an adult, but if you're looking for something super-Christian this probably isn't it."
