Loving the Library: The Wonky Donkey....

You're here and this is my first "Loving the Library". Being the fist one I wanted to share with you a book with a bonus CD that is getting a lot of mileage here at the moment.
The Wonky Donkey
Author: Craig Smith
Illustrator: Katz Cowley
Publisher: Scholastic New Zealand

I find sometimes the most loved and enjoyed stories in our house are when either Ben or I throughly enjoy the storyline as much as Cohen, it brings more to our experience at story time.
With this hilarious story of The Wonky Donkey, I think you will be hard pressed to find a child who won't like this book. The story is written in a cumulative song form, where you will be introduce to a crazy new description of The Wonky Donkey each time you turn the page.
By the end you will be in love with a spunky, hanky-lanky cranky stinky dinky lanky honk-tonky winky wonky donkey.
What's great about this book:
* repetition and rhyming
* bonus CD of the story in song form, it has that wonderful folk feel to it and even has Sarah (who just turned one) booping along. Truth be told there is even an unofficial music video on YouTube of The Wonky Donkey.......which had a laugh out loud moment for Ben and I.
An utterly enjoyable book that we all enjoy as a family, the CD has been played countless times and we are enjoying every time and aren't sick of it yet. I think this would be a great book to get the attention of reluctant child to sit and listen at story time.
