Clare Balding – My Animals and Other Family

By | January 24, 2014


There is something quite nice about snuggling down with a book when the weather isn’t so good and immersing yourself into whatever situation the book takes you to.

The BritMums book club always gives me a chance to read those books I might not necessarily pick up/download normally and I’m always so glad I did.

Clare Balding always comes across as a very likeable presenter and this comes across in bucketloads throughout the book. As does her unconventional childhood and animals, lots and lots of them. We have two cats and three guinea pigs but Clare’s extended family included horses and dogs too.

Clare’s writing is very easy to read and honest, her andidotes made me want to laugh, cry and empathise. An extremely good read and with some stunning illustrations:


A book that I was both eager to finish but, at the same time, didn’t want to because it was such a good read.
