I know, it’s way too early for Christmas books, and believe me, I know. I’m a Halloween girl, myself. But, this book showed up in an email I got from BookLook Bloggers and it looked too cute to pass up.
I’m glad I requested it! The book tells the story of a little donkey who was chosen to carry Mary to Bethlehem where she would give birth to Jesus. It uses a simple rhyming pattern and is quite adorable. I got the board book version because I know how rough Em can be on books, and the pages are actually even sturdier than I expected. Em loved the illustrations, and actually took the book from me at one point so she could stare at one of the pages. This book will definitely be going in our rotation in December and I see it becoming a favorite.
I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. All opinions here are my own.
