“... You will see a young donkey tied there that no one has ever ridden.”
Bestselling author Anthony DeStefano begins his creative telling of the beloved Bible story of Christ’s triumphant entry by introducing the young donkey who has yet to realize his important mission. The lowly creature believes he can do nothing noble, but that’s before he meets the Master...
Then Jesus said to the donkey,
“It’s time that you knew
About the great thing
That you’re destined to do...”
He hears the sad donkey cry,
“Just leave me alone and cast me aside.
I’m just a poor donkey that no one can ride.”
Richard Cowdrey’s colorful illustrations pair beautifully with Anthony’s charming rhymes. Together, they bring this timeless story of the donkey who carries Jesus into Jerusalem to a joyful finish. While especially appropriate as an Easter gift, this year-round story is for all time and for young and old alike.

I was searching for a book for my Godson for Easter and found this touching book! Perfect for young readers and more advance too. Pictures are lovely and has a touching story for all to enjoy. I bought two...one for home and one as a gift.
The story of an adorable little donkey meant to carry Jesus on his back into Jerusalem is joyful. The illustrations are beautiful - my daughter was able to react and understand through each picture what the donkey was feeling. A great book for a young one's library.
Grandson so-o-o loves this story. We looked at the source in the Bible, too. How great it would be to have a stuffed animal donkey just like the one in the book!
My new favorite book for kids! Super great for children who have low self esteem, are bullied, or feel different from other kids. This adorable book will transform your child! So cute and fun to read...Classic! GREAT GIFT, too!
