"One Small Donkey"

Book Description from the publisher:

Little ones can do big things for God!
Your family will love this heartwarming Christmas story told from an unlikely perspective: a donkey carrying Mary to Bethlehem. Though the donkey wasn’t the biggest, fastest, or strongest of all the animals, he had an important job all the same. Adults and children alike will love the message about how God has big plans for little ones.
Dandi Daley Mackall loves God, children, words, and animals. Her nearly 500 books for children and grown-ups have sold more than four million copies worldwide, and her awards include an ECPA Christian Book Award for Best Children’s Book. Dandi writes from rural Ohio, where she lives with her family, including horses, dogs, cats, and an occasional squirrel, deer, or raccoon.

My Review:
"One Small Donkey" is such an adorable story with a great message for kids (and adults!) of all ages.  The little donkey is small and not as fast as he wants to be, but he has such an important responsibility as he is transporting Mary whom is great with child to Bethlehem and then is there for the birth of Jesus.  This is such a nice hardcover edition with vibrant illustrations and rhyming test which is so catchy and will hold even a young child's attention.  This is a story that is sure to become a beloved Christmas story each year.
