A Christmas Book a Day in December :: Day 13

We are reading one holiday book each day in the month of December.
Our books are packaged in re-usable, tagged gift bags and displayed in a basket by our tree.
I am getting to a lean patch of empty bags, though, and need to hit the library tomorrow!

Yesterday's book was The Christmas Donkey.
Another Little Golden Book.

This one is a simple story about a donkey who is purchased in Egypt and endures hardship until he finds a home in Nazareth with Mary and Joseph... and eventually takes them to safety back at his home in Egypt.
Pretty straightforward, more of a filler than a favourite, but one I could see using to help children consider the Christmas story from other points of view.
