Comment: This book has already been loved by someone else. It MIGHT have some wear and tear on the edges, have some markings in it, or be an ex-library book. Over-all it is still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

I had a very old, very worn, very loved copy of this book and just recently replaced it with this hard cover copy. The book is just as a remember it as a child. The art work is done in beautiful, soft watercolors. The story is about a donkey who is sad because he compares his ears to all the other animals ears in the barnyard. He takes advice from each of them on how to improve his appearance, much to his dismay. The story has a happy ending and is wonderful for teaching children to appreciate themselves and others just as they are.

My husband had this book when he was a child. His mother put it away and saved it for him and now we read it to our girls. The kids love it and as a parent, it is one of my absolute favorites. There are so many children's books I dread reading over and over and over but I really never get tired of this one. The writing and illustrations are charming and it teaches an important lesson. I highly recommend it!

Format: Hardcover
Roger Duvoisin's DONKEY DONKEY tells of a donkey who has the strangest ears on the farm - long, and sticking up straight. He wants a new look - but nobody can agree on how Donkey-donkey's ears should look best. Each farm animal has a different idea! This book first appeared in 1933 and is only the second written and illustrated by Caldecott medalist winner Duvoisin. It went out of print in the late 1970s, so it's an excellent acquisition libraries need to replace a well worn shelf classic.

This is a children's book that is great to look at but boring to read. I have not found a child yet who liked the story. If a child likes donkeys, the drawings and price are good.
