I can’t think of a child anywhere who would not love these stories – all of them true, all of them heartwarming and wonderful. I look often for animal stories that can really feed the soul – this book is filled with them.
Please, Can We Keep the Donkey? features dozens of personal accounts of successful animal adoptions and rescues. These entertaining stories describe rewarding relationships with animals ranging from dogs and cats to birds, a snake, and, of course, a donkey.
Meet a rabbit who is an architect, dogs too ugly to pet, an orphaned cat who bonds with an orphaned girl, an unruly dog who brings aid to senior citizens, and many other animals whose lives have changed the people who took them in. These delightful and heartwarming stories of individuals who find each other and bring joy to one another’s lives pose the question that one contributor asks: “Who rescued whom?”
Just about anyone of any age will happily dive into this book!
