Beautifully illustrated, this inspiring tale will delight readers young and old. It is perfect for reading to small children as an early introduction to the story of Jesus.

What a wonderful and imaginative way to present the Christmas story. And what an adorable donkey you have created to tell the story. I pray you will get all the funding necessary to bring this story to the television screen. It will be a great blessing to all who see it. Thanks for sharing it with me. --Dr. David R. Reagan, Lamb & Lion Ministries
Here is a terrific book with wonderful illustrations which your kids will love! I love the pun of the donkey being called Donkey Otie (get it?). He carries Mary, the mother of Jesus, on her way to Bethlehem for the census but she experiences a bigger event than that, the birth of her son, the Savior of the world. The illustrations are amazing and this is a fantastic way to teach children the Nativity story. We award this wonderful book our Dove Family-Approved Seal and five Doves, our peak rating! --The Dove Foundation
As a parent of formerly small children ... It strikes me that a traditional story is about to get a facelift. Something very endearing is about to be told. We're going to experience the animals' view of having the Son of God born in their humble surroundings: the awesomeness of the angelic choir; the majesty of the three kings, etc.. It doesn't hurt that the character in the faces of the drawings is glorious. --Nathan Burbank, Music Composer
