Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
There is not a whole lot one would expect to see when looking at a donkey, but such is not the case with this picture book. There is a lot of tongue-twisting, long-winded, catch-phrasing going on in this story. It all happens when a little yellow bird just happens to be sitting on an old fence post by the side of the road and sees a donkey hobbling along. The bird notices that the donkey has some very interesting things about him: he's missing a leg and an eye to name a few. The little yellow bird just keeps adding these interesting qualities and it's quite fascinating to see if you have enough breath to say them all. Water color illustrations bring donkey and bird to life. The readers in the age range of 5 to 9 years will get a close and personal view of the donkeys many attributes. Teachers and parents will enjoy this picture book as much as children. The quirky lyrics will make everyone giggle. Children will learn a new song that can be downloaded from the Scholastic website. This book is very interactive and helps children understand that we are all different and that's not a bad thing. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard

    Not what I expected

    I like the story line, but who wants to read a story to a 4 year old that has a page on farting donkeys? I was rather disappointed with that.

    Absolutely brilliant!

    As I read this book for the first time to my children, I caught myself laughing out loud. This is a wonderful book and one certainly worthy of it's place by my children's bedside.
