Oh sure, we’ve all heard the story about Jesus entering Jerusalem riding on a donkey. But have we heard it from the perspective of the donkey who experienced this history-making event firsthand? He might be just a pack animal, but he has a big lesson to learn. Part of the Their Side of the Story series, The Donkey and Jesus offers an important lesson about service, and the Parent Connection feature helps parents and kids further discuss the message behind the original Bible story. Kids ages 4 to 8 will love this interesting way to learn about Jesus’ ride into Jerusalem. And don’t miss the other rollicking Bible stories in this series: The Raven and Noah’s Ark, The Frog and the Plagues, The Lion and Daniel, and The Whale and Jonah.
