The Donkey's Song: A Christmas Nativity Story
Children will experience the first Christmas through new eyes in this heart-tugging story of the Nativity, told by the gentle but determined donkey that carried Jesus's parents to Bethlehem. It's a perfect Christmas gift book for snuggling up and sharing.
Sleepy but strong, I clip-clopped along
to rest in a stable with straw.
The wonder of the first Christmas miracle is movingly told with descriptions of scented pine, warm candlelight, fresh hay, and a "sweet angel sound" as a gentle donkey welcomes the baby Jesus. Each page has adorable, moonlit images of the humble farm animals that were there to witness and comfort.
This luminous, soothing song of hope, friendship, conviction, and faith is one that families will return to each Christmas for years to come.
Praise for The Donkey's Song: A Christmas Nativity Story
"A sweet and gentle introduction to the nativity story."—Publishers Weekly
“Kellum uses short, lyrical stanzas to describe the sights and scents of the manger, such as the flicker of candlelight and the smell of pine. . . . Illustrations seem to glow with soft light, which gives each spread a cozy warmth.”—School Library Journal
