Easter Children's Book Review ~ "The Donkey That No One Could Ride" by Anthony DeStefano

The Donkey That No One Could RideThe Donkey That No One Could Ride by Anthony DeStefano
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Christian Children's Picture Book

Book Description: ... 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.

My thoughts: The Donkey That No One Could Ride is a cute book to read to children. It takes a look at a broken donkey. He was worthless until healed by the Savior.

The book is written beautifully and the illustrations are well done. This is book provides a cute and fun way to talk to children about the meaning of Easter and the ministry of Jesus.
