In this unique story of Christ's triumphant entry into Jerusalem on the Sunday before Easter, the proud little donkey colt tells the story of how he was especially chosen to carry the Son of God into the city. Author Michelle Medlock Adams fills her rhymes with tenderness and humor that strikes just the right note of reverence for the subject and joy for the reader. The luxurious oil paintings of artist Wayne Parmenter move from the purples and blues of early night scenes to the triumphant reds and golds of the glorious climax of the story. The sculpted embossing of the jacket's painting gives the illusion that the colt and his rider are riding out of the book. Recommended for ages 3 to 7.
