The Donkey and the King by Lorilyn Roberts - Great Children's Story...Plus...


Many of you know I lost a completed book review this week, so I went ahead with others until I could work on it again...While I waited to again be in the right frame of mind, I decided to get this book to read. 

Not only is this a great book for children, but it also introduces the animals from the Seventh Dimension! And tells us about meeting the King!

It's a great prelude to The Door, which is coming next... Reminded me of long ago when, when you went to a movie, you got to see a cartoon prior to the main feature! LOL Except this one is directly related to the upcoming story...


Baruch became a Child of the King!
And so did the other animals in the book! I loved it!
Let's Find out More!


The Donkey and the King:
A Story of Redemption

By Lorilyn Roberts
Illustrated by Linda S. DiFranco


Baruch was unhappy living where he was and working as he did...He was missing something and sure would like not to have to  carry somebody else's burdens all the time...So he decided to leave... But Baruch was well liked and his friend's tried to get
him to stay home.

 :  Much Afraid, a brown and white crippled dog, followed close behind. “Please don’t go,” she cried.

“I’ll miss you,” grunted Lowly the pig, “and all the fun times we had together.”
~~~

But all Baruch could think about was how free he would be and that he wouldn't have chores everyday...

He was going--he had to--but he said someday he'd be back to see them... 
Many of us lose our way due to problems that arise or feelings we have that we believe cannot be discussed even with parents or friends... We may be facing somebody who is a bully when we get to school. Or, maybe the classes are presenting problems--mine was learning higher math--and you know your teacher won't help... Sometimes you just feel like you are all alone and nobody cares...But wait somebody was here!


It was dark when he left. It didn't take long before he was rethinking what he'd done. It was cold and he wondered what he'd eat now that he was away from his regular meals. Finally, tired and hungry, he found a cave where he could spent the night. It was a little warmer, and he tried to sleep... 



That's what happened with Baruch. But, you know what? Before the night was over, somebody had come to see him, there is that cave...



Out of nowhere, a white sheep poked her head around the corner. “Can I help you? It looks like you need a friend.”

“My name is Baruch and I’m lost.” 
“I can see that,” said the sheep. 
“My name is Little. I was sent to find you.”
“To find me?” Baruch asked.
 “You don’t even know me.”
 “That’s true,” said Little. “But the King knows you.”
 “The King? He knows me?” 
“That’s right,” the sheep said.
~~~


How cool it was to have somebody tell Baruch that somebody loved him...and, guess, what, he loves all of us! And that's why I'm highly recommending this to all of you who have children or small relatives who may not know that the King loves them!
Now I'm not going any further with the story, but I can't help but share just one more of the pictures in the book! It is soooo precious, don't you think?

He placed His hand on the donkey’s head. “I love you,” the King said.~~~
