I received this book in the mail yesterday and I couldn't wait to pick it up. As I turned the pages the story of this donkey drew me in. I had errands to do and the book sadly had to be put aside. Only to be hungrily picked up again towards night and finished at 1:00 in the morning. My daughter looked at me and said "Your really reading a book about a donkey?" Yes I was and enjoying every last minute. I laughed uproariously, and then a chapter later I bawled. I'm so glad everyone had went to bed!
The details were so perfect. It was like I was standing there looking at this donkey. By the time I finished I knew things like where he traveled, the noise he made, and his wanting to be something better in life.
Interwoven in this tale of the wonderful donkey were the stories of his people. The people who rescued him from beside the road. How they struggled and learned to find solace in God's Word. The donkey did not make their live any easier but the lessons learned throughout were very helpful to my everyday life. Such an encouraging, easy flowing book that It makes me want to read it again!
I received this book from Tyndale Rewards in exchange for an honest review.
