The Donkey's Easter Tale
Author: Adele Bibb Colvin
Illustrator: Peyton Carmichael
Stuck inside their small stable one very rainy afternoon, two little donkeys listen to a story their grandfather tells them, a story that they will always carry in their hearts. Years ago, when the grandfather was still a young donkey, he was called to serve a man named Jesus.
Carrying Jesus on his back into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the faithful donkey stays with the Lord throughout that first Easter week. Marvelously illustrated, this timeless, thoughtful, and sensitive story teaches children of all ages the meaning of what it is to love and serve Jesus Christ.
