Stubby's Destiny Reviews
Stubby's DestinyWritten by Dixie PhillipsIllustrated by Kim SponauglePublished by Guardian Angel PublishingStubby's Destiny is a about an orphan donkey who wants to be like the great stallions who work for the King. Sly the stallion takes time to work with Stubby on his trot, his stance, his grace. Much stumbling and tears later Stubby realizes he will never be a magnificant stallion. He goes home to the stable with tears in his eyes, feeling he has no divine destiny. The next morning Stubby is getting a drink at the well and 2 men come up and put a robe around his neck and tell him that the Lord needs his help. Maybe Stubby has a divine calling after all.A great story for any time of year, but works great for the Easter season and the triumphant entry. The story was fantastic, my kids really enjoyed it. The illustrations were fantastic. The only trouble I had with this book is that the writing goes right across the illustrations and is in white print. I didn't care for this layout at all. I felt it distracted from the art work. I personally prefer the words to be on their own page, or at the bottom of the page, to not cover up the illustrations. Just my own personal opinion. The wholesomeness of the book, and the story isn't hindered by it, but I would recommend not using this type of format. I received a copy of this book from Dixie and I so appreciate the opportunity to review it!
Stubby is a donkey who feels he has been born all wrong. He'll never find his Divine destiny because he's got poor posture, doesn't have a regal stance like Sly the stallion, and is always in the wrong place at the wrong time. Stubby never would have thought that he would be chosen to carry the King of Kings. This might just be my favorite Christian children's book. The minute we received "Stubby's Destiny", my five-year-old daughter wanted to read it. In this simple tale of a defeated donkey who ends up being chosen to carry Jesus into Jerusalem, children quickly learn about God's love and following His plan. Here is poor Stubby, thinking he'll never amount to anything, and yet, he is chosen for the important task of carrying the King of Kings. How can children not be uplifted when reading such a story? My daughter instantly fell in love with Stubby, and the touching and beautiful illustrations provided by Kim Sponaugle, make Stubby's story even better. I applaud Dixie Phillips for being able to reach the heart of a child with her simple, but important story. "Stubby's Destiny" is a favorite in my house, and it will soon be in yours too!
