My Thoughts On The Book: I do not review children's books often and for the most part I enjoyed this little book. It had great eye appeal. I actually read it to a Sunday School class of 5 year olds and they were most impressed. I loved that each event was followed by scripture. The events were close to accurate, Jesus's getting his own donkey was not correct. I researched several versions of the Bible and in all versions the disciples got the donkey as Jesus asked. It was still a very simple telling of the life of Jesus that a small child could comprehend and I loved that. The illustrations were precious. The only thing I found fault in was that all the characters were white. People from that region of the country were darker skinned. Yet, even with that I could see where children would never notice this. This book would be a great gift for a little one in your life.

I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
