LOVE IT ! Based on history and reality it gives an un-thought of angle of the life of the Lord when entering Jerusalem. At the same time, it highlights some of life's challenges that can come whether you are a child or an adult. This book speaks to not only children, but everyone who reads it to a child. It crosses gender and age barriers. Illustrations are adorable. I wanted to take Jasper home with me. A must have book.
BRILLIANT!!! Jul 23, 2004
A truly inspiring story. The plot makes it a real page-turner. Many lessons about life such as obedience and self-esteem that are woven into the book make it absolutely awesome. The author makes history come alive with her adorable donkey that tells the story as a first person narrative. Highly recommend this choice.
