This story is told from a unique perspective, which makes it even more interesting for young children. It is so well done that it is amazing to realize it was originally written as a grade school writing project. The story is just as much a must read for adults as it is for children. The text and illustrations work together well and draw readers into the story. This would make a wonderful gift which could be passed on for generations. **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**

If you are looking for an inspirational children's Christian story of Jesus' journey from birth to his crucifixion, then look no further, Journey To The Cross is a must read book that parents should share with their children. Teenage author Shane Cloonan weaves a touching story of Jesus' life told from the unique perspective of the faithful donkey that will easily draw the reader in as they follow Jesus' journey. Through the donkey's eyes, the author delivers a truly heartfelt, soul stirring, and inspirational message that will touch the hearts of parents and children forever. I would be remiss if I didn't mention how beautiful the illustrations complement this lovely story. From cover to cover, this heartwarming story is a must read for all ages. Journey To The Cross would make a wonderful Christmas tradition for families to read and pass on to each generation.
