It’s a new day and a new title.
And get this, I didn’t come up with it.
I slacked and didn’t keep up with the days and finally quit doing the Children’s Book Tuesday. Then one of my sweet bloggy friends (who found me looking for Children’s Books posts in the first place, hi Kathi!) had a link last week to a Children’s Book Monday. SoVainMe thought “Huh, I do that on Tuesdays, not Mondays. She seems confused.” And then I went alookin’. A Path Made Straight has been doing Children’s Book Mondays for much longer than I had even thought of doing Children’s Book Tuesdays! Hello? A little research always helps, right? Measure twice, cut once?
So here’s my children’s book for this week. (or for the last 2 months, whatevs)
And then go comment on her site and leave your children’s book fav over there!
Little Colt’s Palm Sunday
Written by Michelle Medlock Adams
Illustrated by Wayne Parmenter
What a sweet little book. And for us it’s a great way to start the week before Easter! It’s all pretend based on the real story, a poem told from the donkeys’ points of view.
Jesus the Christ stroked Little Colt.
He had a gentle touch.
“He’s pleased with me!” thought Little Colt.
“I like him very much.”
And then the men took off their coats
And pulled the colt real near.
They placed their coats upon his back,
And said, “Jesus, sit here.”
We read the real version found in Matthew 21:1-11 and the we read this sweet cutesy book. Hope you enjoy!
