A Donkey's Little Tale by R. Mitchell Scott is a beautifully written story in poetic verse and told through the eyes of the little donkey that carried Mary to Bethlehem. We are transported to that long ago night when all creation celebrated the birth of Christ even the animals. A timeless Christmas story for all ages.

Preparing for the journey to Bethlehem in order to register for the census, Joseph groomed the gentle donkey colt chosen to accompany him and his with-child bride.
Along the way, the charming little beast of burden committed to memory all he saw and heard along the way in hopes that his intuitive insights and attention to detail would be passed down for generations to come. Little did he realize he would be a witness to the birth of the Christ Child, never dreaming he would be pressed into the service of a King. Thus, the little chronicler fills in many gaps in the love story of Joseph and Mary, and the joyous birth of Jesus.
This is his little tale.
