by Susanne T Schroder

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
The Nativity with a twist ... to enthrall, delight, inspire and encourage. You may have heard what the shepherds did, the angels sang or the wise men knew ... but who ever heard what the donkey had to say? This "utterly gorgeous ... visual delight" (Moms & Tots Leader, URC) is the donkey’s story of a surprise encounter and how it changed him. "An adorable book for young children, ages 3-7, and even those younger and older, with something to take away on every level..." BOOK CRASH "We love it ... wonderfully told, beautifully illustrated, & SO original..." Sinead & Martin Kromer (Federation of Children’s Book clubs) "...Gets to the heart of the Christmas message in a new and innovative way..." review (amazon) "...Yes, it’s the message of Christ’s birth. But the stubborn-donkey perspective adds another dimension. Kindness transforms. God uses the unlikeliest of us. God makes the impossible possible. The lessons aren’t spelled out, but lay the groundwork for meaningful discussion..."( Book Crash) "...missed by the chains..." (The Book Seller) ...Schroder’s lettering for her text is as distinctive as her imagination (Publishers Weekly)
Armed with a sense of humor and fun, The Donkey’s First Christmas by Susanne T Schroder presents the Nativity in a fresh and exciting way - from the viewpoint of a very unlikely hero... Children will delight to see the adorable (if a little cheeky) donkey overcome his stubbornness; and marvel at how such a seemingly useless mule can become quite so useful. As the children watch the donkey unwittingly use his talents to great effect; they will be encouraged to see that what they have, and who they are, can make a significant difference too...
