He never tired of telling about that special night, a Holy Night, when Jesus Christ was born. Although it happened over two thousand years ago, the story lives on….
She has taken the Nativity story out in a fresh way with wonderful characters such as Scribe Mouse, Old Goat, Older and Younger Pigeon, and of course Mary and Joseph, whose dialog is realistically handled in a way that they might have actually spoken about their circumstance, the need to find her a place to give birth to the Savior of the world in Bethlehem. Then there is Donkey Otie himself, the bearer of Mary and her unborn child.
She also writes about Joseph pitching hay in the stall, something he very likely did.
Branton works in historical references such as King Herod dying on page 80 in the manuscript and on page 58 as she pinpoints the birth of the coming Messiah from scripture. She refers to Simeon and Anna as well, who looked for the birth of Jesus, and they come across the young child in the temple later in the story. Yet Branton gives the reader delightful and imaginative characters from the animal world as well. We are most happy to award Vicky C. Join Donkey Otie for a wonderful, imaginative journey based on the timeless story of the Nativity. Another author, Janet Duggan, a mother from Hertfordshire, has also written an account of the nativity from the point of view of the donkey.follow url
