This is a story about a tired donkey and his efforts to get a special family to Egypt. This book will appeal to you because of its kid-friendly retelling of an important, rhyming Christmastime Bible story. In Doty the Donkey, Doty comes down with a cold and just wants to spend the night in a nice, warm stable. But Mary, Joseph, and the new baby, Jesus, are relying on him to get them safely to Egypt. Doty pushes through his pain and weariness to carry the family to safety, but once they arrive, poor Doty collapses. It is through the grace of the sweet baby Jesus that he heals again. Kids aged four to eight and their parents will enjoy Doty's perspective on this important event.
