More About The Donkey That No One Could Ride by Anthony DeStefano; Richard Cowdrey
 
 
 
Overview

... 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.

DeStefano finds a fresh take on the events that lead to Easter. Using a small scriptural reference to the unridden donkey that Jesus rides in triumph into Jerusalem, DeStefano imagines a transformative relationship between a small, weak donkey and a figure who gives him strength and asks him to have faith. The text’s rhymes (“No matter how much he tried or he cried/ This was a donkey no one could ride”) make for easy read-aloud. Cowdrey’s illustrations focus on the donkey, conveying the development from initial lethargy to the donkey’s energetic and confident strength. It’s a welcome change from Easter chicks and bunnies. Ages 5–up. (Feb.)
