This is not normally a review I would post to my homeschool blog...but I met the author on-line in a strange round-about way. Anyway, I purchased this picture book for my collection not realizing what the book was really about! I'm glad I did.
Daisy the Donkey takes us on a very important journey, her very first journey as a "taxi" from Jerusalem to Bethlehem. Russ Brown retells this classic story in a most unique way making it accessible to all children. Ultimately the story is of the birth of Jesus, and although I am not religious, I was pleasantly surprised at the subtle non- Christian (if that even makes sense) way he told this very sweet story. I used to own a pre-school and I believe this book would make an excellent addition to any diverse pre-school or early elementary library. This is a delightful new picture book with a sweet message. I am happy to add it to my collection!
