Sometimes new friendships are forged from the unlikeliest of circumstances. Flash the Donkey Makes New Friends is a sweet story that's sure to make an impact on any child's heart. Kids will not only delight in the story and it's illustrations, but learn a very important lesson on the value of friendship and good deeds. I received a complimentary book to read, however all views and opinions here are unbiased and purely those of my own.
“Some stories begin with once upon a time. This one starts with a little blue wagon and a good idea.”
And thus sets the stage for this independent little donkey who is all alone in the world (and thinks he likes it that way) to find friends and the value of using his talents to help others.
My kids love it. Mostly when I ask them to choose a book for me to read, it’s the same ones over and over: Click Clack Moo, Tacky the Penguin and The Paperbag Princess. Most of our Christian children’s books are retellings of popular Bible stories and stories about their favorite movie characters and not among their favorites for read aloud time. I am not sure whether this is telling of the quality of Christian children’s books in general, or just indicative of our less than stellar collection, but it is nice to finally have a Christian book with the kind of endearing characters and playful language that keeps them asking for me to read it again. (And again. And again.)
My little Asa has also named the little donkey in all the nativities he’s seen Flash. High praise from my little man!
The text itself is not overtly Christian. If you took out the end, you wouldn't know it was a Christian book. But it closes with a verse to share with your children and some activities to help them think about how we should live as Christians.
(Note: A complimentary copy of this book was provided to me by Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for this review. The opinions are my own.)

The illustrations are fair enough but they don't carry the story on their own.
Really freakin' adorable. The text is so simple, but so much fun. The author chose her words carefully, and the story really works well.Read more
