" ... 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.
