Let’s wish a happy book birthday today to Take A Hike! A Donkey-Donk Story by Ellen F. Feld and photographs by John Cebula.
The third picture book in a series featuring the author’s adorable miniature donkey, follow Donkey-Donk as she prepares to hike Mount Washington in New Hampshire all the way to the top.
The first things that catch your eye when you pick up the book are the gorgeous photographs of breathtaking views, each with Donkey-Donk front and center. The scenery is amazing. The donkey knows how to pose.
Next you notice the lightly humorous, gently tongue-in-cheek story that will delight youngsters. The best part is that the text is sweet and succinct, not too wordy or overdone like some children’s books can be. It gives just the right amount of information using appropriate vocabulary, then moves on.
And move it does, right up the mountain. Do you know what is at the top of Mount Washington? You will find out if you read this book.
Take A Hike! would be perfect to accompany a trip to New Hampshire or to encourage kids to get outside and take a hike in their own state. It is a must have for young horse or donkey lovers, too. Check out a copy today!
