Watchful Wednesdays – Book Launch Tour – Lorilyn Roberts
by Lorilyn Roberts author of The Donkey and the King.
A donkey longs for an easier life with no heavy burdens and no one to tell him what to do. He runs away and becomes lost, but “good” finds him in the most unlikely of places.
Travel to the Bible lands and meet Baruch, a stubborn donkey, and other lovable animals: Lowly, the pig; Much-Afraid, a small, lame dog; Worldly Crow, who isn’t as bright as he thinks he is; and a sheep, Little, sent on a special mission by the King. The ending of the story will delight young readers as they discover “good” exists in the world if they look and listen for it.
When I was young, I hated doing chores. I suppose I was this donkey, rebellious and self-determined, but desperate for a friend—the one friend who would never leave me (or you).
Here is a short excerpt from The Donkey and the King. This is the second stop on the tour. I hope you will visit all the blogs and participate in the John 3:16 Marketing Network Book Launch and win the grand prize. See details below.
Worldly Crow squawked, “You’re making a big mistake. I know because I’ve been around. You’re headed for trouble.”
Much Afraid, a brown and white crippled dog, followed close behind.
“Please don’t go,” she cried.
On every page is the hidden word “good.” Can you find it in the drawings above? If not, you can look below and see where the word is hidden.
The unique quality about Kindle-enhanced books is that the drawings and font size can be enlarged for young readers. And for parents who can’t find the word, a QR code (a free AP is available for smart phones) and link is provided to facilitate the search. Some pages are more challenging than others (for older readers).
If you enjoyed looking for the mouse in “Goodnight Moon” when you were young, your child will delight in looking for “good” in “The Donkey and the King.” The moral: There is good in the world if you look and listen for the King’s voice.
