Mary's Little Donkey And the Escape to Egypt by Gunhild SehlinA long time ago in the Holy Land lived a dirty little donkey who hated hard work. And then he met gentle, kind Mary, and his world changed forever. When Mary and Joseph are told they have to go to Bethlehem, who will carry Mary on the long journey? And when Herod's soldiers come looking for them, who will help them escape across the desert to Egypt? This is an exciting and beautifully told version of the Christmas story and the early years of little Jesus's life, from a unique, child-friendly perspective. It is ideal for family reading through the Advent season.
's Bookstore (www.waldorfbooks.com) 'This book is not just one of those to drag out for Christmas but could be read all year round.'
'Retells the birth of Jesus in a new and charming way. There is a touch of humour and an insight into the reality of the long journey. Can be enjoyed by children hearing it read aloud.'
