Summary

Inspired by Biblical stories, author Adele Bibb Colvin and artist Peyton Hamilton Carmichael’s The Donkey’s Easter Tale is a celebratory picture book.     Stuck inside their small stable one very rainy afternoon, two little donkeys listen to a story their grandfather tells them, a story that they will always carry in their hearts. Years ago, when the grandfather was still a young donkey, he was called to serve a man named Jesus.   Carrying Jesus on his back into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the faithful donkey stays with the Lord throughout that first Easter week. He watches with fear and awe when Christ overturns the money tables in the Temple and feels blessed to see Jesus cure the sick and teach parables.   At Jesus’ side throughout the Last Supper, the agony in the garden, and the betrayal and crucifixion, the donkey experiences Christ’s compassion for all creatures and discovers that God’s love is for everyone and always will be. After watching Jesus die and mourning his death, the donkey learns of Christ’s Resurrection and travels to Galilee to see Jesus once again, experiencing the joy all Christians share at every Easter celebration.   Marvelously illustrated, this timeless, thoughtful, and sensitive story teaches children of all ages the meaning of what it is to love and serve Jesus Christ.

    Mother Goose in Prose is a collection of twenty-two stories by L. Frank Baum (author of The Wizard of Oz). The stories are based on the Mother Goose nursery rhymes. Mother Goose’s legendary character was that of an older mother and grandmother who spent her days singing songs to her grandchildren and the other children in her town. Though the origins of this myth are disputed, Mother Goose is a classic character in children’s literature, often associated with nursery rhymes, or short poems and lullabies that are easy to recite or sing as lullabies, with loosely veiled references to historical events and figures.This collection of stories was written as a way to give further literary background to common nursery rhymes. Each begins with the original rhyme, followed by Baum’s original story to expand on the characters and events within the popular poems. Some of the rhymes expanded include “Little Boy Blue,” “The Man in the Moon,” “Little Bo-Peep,” “The Woman Who Lived in a Shoe,” and “Little Miss Muffet,” among many others.
