Oh sure, we've all heard the story about Jesus entering Jerusalem by riding on a donkey. But have we heard it from the perspective of the donkey that experienced this history-making event? Hey God, I’m Sorry to Be Stubborn, but I Just Don’t Like Anyone Riding on My Back! imagines how a pack animal might have learned a lesson about service by giving him a chance to tell his side of the story. Kids ages 4 to 8 will discover a creative way of learning about the Triumphal Entry. The "Parent Connection" feature will help moms and dads take the story further with scripture references and tips on how to talk with their children about what really happened.
