When Jesus Christ arrived in Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, he rode a donkey through a throng of admiring people. Just days later, Christ endured the unimaginable pain of betrayal and crucifixion before rising from the grave on Easter Sunday. This artful and inspired children's book recounts Jesus' Last Supper with his apostles, the Agony in the Garden, the sorrow of the Crucifixion, and the glorious Resurrection as remembered by the donkey who remained at his side.

Flap copy

In this inspired retelling of Biblical stories from Jesus' adult life, death, and resurrection, a humble donkey shares with his grandchildren his experiences as a servant of Christ.
After carrying Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the frightened and faithful donkey stays by Jesus' side during the Last Supper, the evening in the garden of Gethsemane, and his crucifixion. A witness to the glorious miracle when Christ rose from the dead on Easter Sunday, the donkey spreads the love of God and his faith to his grandchildren, urging them and all Christian children to bring the good news of Jesus' love for all living things to anyone who will listen.
