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.)
