The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle 1923 Medal Winner *****

The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle is a story told by a small boy named Stubbins. It is through his eyes that we meet the famous Dr. Dolittle and hear about how he learns to talk to animals and his adventures.

I was pleasantly surprised with this book. So far I have had too much luck with book from this decade, but this book really feels timeless. I think children today would enjoy it just as much as children did then. I particularly enjoyed how short each chapter was, which made it a book easy to stop and start. A great book for nighttime, just one chapter at a time.
