product image
$13.99
One Christmas Eve in a far kingdom, the royal family gathered to open presents--which mainly meant watching the prince open his... So begins a children's story about taking, but also giving--about stubbornness, but also a change of heart. The spoiled prince doesn't realize that he's actually bored with all the magnificent gifts he's given. And he carries a deeper sadness, one that would stay locked away, a secret even from him, if his wise grandmother hadn't understood that what he really needed was...a stick. It was sturdy, and as long as he was tall. But it was just a stick. And yet this simple gift opens the prince to precious things. This children's picture book explores the power of imagination, the pleasure of doing, and eventually, the heart-soothing, joy-inducing warmth of not only being loved--but loving.

Donkey That No One Could Ride

$14.99

"... You will see a young donkey tied there that no one has ever ridden."

Bestselling author Anthony DeStefano begins his creative telling of the beloved Bible story of Christ's triumphant entry by introducing the young donkey who has yet to realize his important mission. The lowly creature believes he can do nothing noble, but that's before he meets the Master...

Then Jesus said to the donkey,
"It's time that you knew
About the great thing
That you're destined to do..."
He hears the sad donkey cry,
"Just leave me alone and cast me aside.
I'm just a poor donkey that no one can ride."

Richard Cowdrey's colorful illustrations pair beautifully with Anthony's charming rhymes. Together, they bring this timeless story of the donkey who carries Jesus into Jerusalem to a joyful finish. While especially appropriate as an Easter gift, this year-round story is for all time and for young and old alike.

Eric Metaxas, New York Times best-selling author, Bonhoeffer
