Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
The donkey's loud bray may catch your attention. Donkeys are from the same family as horses and zebras. A "donkey" is a small, grayish brown animal. Learn about the history of the donkey, its features, and characteristics that help the animal to survive. The donkey's ancestry dates back over 10,000 years. For many centuries, people have used donkeys to help carry loads. The insets which are located in the margins offer interesting pieces of additional information; one inset includes a brief background about Eeyore, the donkey from Milne's "Winnie-the-Pooh" series. Throughout the book, there are color photographs with captions. The layout of the species chart abruptly appears in between the pages of the main text and breaks the flow describing the history of the donkey. Those children undertaking research will find the glossary and index helpful for specific information. The book list and web sites may be useful for children who wish to explore further information on the donkey. This book on donkeys is from the "Animals Animals" series which covers a variety of different animals. The format of the books in the series is similar. An animal care consultant reviewed the contents of the text. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
