Bestselling author Anthony DeStefano begins his creative telling of the beloved Bible story of Christ's triumphant entry by introducing the young donkey who has yet to realize his important mission. The lowly creature believes he can do nothing noble, but that's before he meets the Master...
Then Jesus said to the donkey,
"It's time that you knew
About the great thing
That you're destined to do..."
He hears the sad donkey cry,
"Just leave me alone and cast me aside.
I'm just a poor donkey that no one can ride."
Richard Cowdrey's colorful illustrations pair beautifully with Anthony's charming rhymes. Together, they bring this timeless story of the donkey who carries Jesus into Jerusalem to a joyful finish. While especially appropriate as an Easter gift, this year-round story is for all time and for young and old alike
