As I read this book for the first time to my children, I caught myself laughing out loud. This is a wonderful book and one certainly worthy of it's place by my children's bedside.

There isn¿t a whole lot one would expect to see when looking at a donkey, but such is not the case with this picture book. There is a lot of tongue-twisting, long-winded, catch-phrasing going on in this story. It all happens when a little yellow bird just happens to be sitting on an old fence post by the side of the road and sees a donkey hobbling along. The bird notices that the donkey has some very interesting things about him, he's missing a leg and an eye to name a few. The little yellow bird just keeps adding these interesting qualities and it¿s quite interesting to see if you have enough breath to say them all.Water color illustrations bring donkey and bird to life. The readers in the age range of 5 to 9 yrs will get a close and personal view of the donkeys many attributes. Teachers and parents will enjoy this picture book as much as children. The quirky lyrics will make everyone giggle. Children will learn a new song that can be downloaded from the Scholastic website. This book is very interactive and helps children understand that we are all different and that¿s not a bad thing.

I laughed all the way through this book. I am giving both of my granddaughters it to add to their library. I liked that it showed a not so perfect donkey so that I can explain that everyone and everything is their own unique person or in this case animal.

I think this book is funnnny. I think it is good for little's to see us laugh and have fun. It's funny that the donkey farts. We all fart and if you are offended by that, life is just too serious for you. Very cute, funny, cleaver book.

I like the story line, but who wants to read a story to a 4 year old that has a page on farting donkeys? I was rather disappointed with that.
