Dave the Donkey is a fun children's book. What I love about it is the way the story is told by Dave the Donkey who carried Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. It then tells the Easter story with Grandpa Donkey telling Dave what happened. It is a different way of telling the story the story in a simplistic but clever way. The illustrations are very well done and I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a different book to use at Easter. It is a book little children would understand and it also has a guide in the back for teachers or parents to help them use the book with there children. Great book and the other books in the series are a good read also.
