Ernest and the Big Itchby Laura T. Barnes, Carol A. Camburn (Illustrator), Carol A. Camburn (Illustrator)
In this charming barnyard tale, a tiny, lovable donkey named Ernest and his farmyard friends show that persistence, acceptance, devotion, and friendship prove to be the building blocks of a happy life. In Ernest and the Big Itch, Ernest must find a way to scratch his back without bothering the other animals living on the farm. What he doesn’t realize is that the pole he’s chosen to scratch with is the home of two little birds—and he accidentally shakes them right out of their house! The birds decide to help Ernest find an alternative scratching post, leading the trio on an amusing barnyard adventure and resulting in a strong friendship between the three. Beautiful watercolor illustrations of the sweet miniature donkey and the other animals at Barnesyard Farm are sure to enthrall young readers and parents alike, and hiding in each picture is a cute little bug for kids to discover.
