Ever wonder how donkeys got the sign of the cross on their backs? Wonder about it no more.

I’m a sucker for Christian children’s picture books, if they aren’t preachy. This one is perfect.

Mylo, an abandoned donkey, hears a voice from heaven instructing him to go west. So he sets off at a gallop, travelling for two days and two nights. He’s found and stabled by Joseph, the soon-to-be father of the world’s Savior. This cute little book tells the story of Jesus, from birth to ascension, from the perspective of Jesus’ best friend from birth: Mylo, his loving, loyal donkey. Mylo doesn’t seem to understand very much about what’s going around on around him—hey, he’s just a donkey—but I suspect in the end, he understands as much as any of us need to.

Sheila’s tale is respectful, heart-warming, and biblical (if you’re able to pretend an adorable little donkey followed Jesus everywhere he went). And yes, donkeys go to heaven, too. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0578125951, Paperback)

An Enchanting Story of Jesus and a Faithful Donkey... Mylo the donkey thinks there is nothing left for him when his owner abandons him in the Sinai Desert. But God recognizes this patient animal's big heart, and has another purpose for him. Journey with Mylo as he serves Jesus and learns the Good News of salvation, from the manger at Bethlehem to the cross at Calvary, and beyond. This heartwarming fable shares messages and passages from the Bible, and shares how all donkeys after Mylo still bear a special sign of faithful service. Children and adults alike will be charmed by this gentle tale of love, friendship, and loyalty to those we love, and to our animal comrades.
