around to reading this 1001 Children s Book You Must Read this summer I was surprised toto reading this 1001 Children s Book You Must Read this summer I was surprised to the actual story is very different from my perception of the storyLassie is a strikingly beautiful collie owned by a poor family in Great Britain She is devoted to the boy in the family The father loses his job and decides to sell the dog to a rich man in the community The man takes the dog to Scotland but somehow though the distance is enormous Lassie finds her way back to her familyLassie is a genuinely heartwarming story without ever falling into sappiness and that s a difficult thing to do This is a book that a read and retread as a child as well as watched the movie The characters the Scottish countryside and the heart wrenching story of the loyalty of a dog and a family s poverty still stay with me 45 years later It is a testament to how a great book can become a part of our being and life experience as if we lived it ourselves I had to put this book on here because this was by far one of my favorite books when I was little I would constantly check Lassie out from my elementary library and read it over and over agian It got me into stories like Call of the Wild and White Fang But this book was one of the books that made me the reader I am today I love lassie. To the remotest part of Scotland―too far a journey for any dog to make alone But Lassie is not just any dog.
