    Rachel Ann Ridge is not only the author of this childrens book but also the illustrator. The story itself is based on true events: author Ridge adopted a stray donkey. She previously detailed this story in the book Flash: The Homeless Donkey that Taught Me about Life, Faith and Second Changes.

    Flash is a Donkey with no home, no family, and no friends. He travels alone with his blue wagon collecting random treasures he finds along his way. After getting hurt, he encounters a group of three friends who offer to care for him. The situation takes a 180 shift as the three friends have a dilemma that only Flash can help solve. These events provide the means towards a solid friendship between Flash and the others.

    Its a fairly short book at only 39 pages and Ridge separates the story into three chapters: Meeting, Caring, Celebrating. At the end, she emphasizes Proverbs 11:30 as the basis for the story: The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends. She also includes a page where your child can write his/her friends names on hay bales as well as a section to write how tos for caring for others.

    It seems that her storyline is to highlight that caring for others can lead towards lasting friendships.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Life Doesn't Always Go As Planned

    Flash the Donkey Makes New Friends is an adorable book that teaches children the importance of helping others and being kind. In the story, there are animal characters that meet a traveling homeless donkey named Flash. Something happens to donkey making him in need of help and a hen, pig, and goat comes to his aid.

    The characters in this story feature interesting and diverse personalities much like the people a child might meet in their class or group. The illustrations portray the emotions well with what's going on.

    I think one of the biggest takeaways of this book is that life happens not always like we imagine it will. I'm sure the donkey or the other animals didn't expect what happened to cause a reaction over time that forged a great friendship between the four of them!

    The story is light-hearted and the biggest take away is being kind. This doesn't always mean you'll make friends but you never know. It's definitely a good read for starting this conversation. The Bible verse in this book is Proverbs 11:30, "The seeds of good deeds become a tree of life; a wise person wins friends."

    At the end of the book, there's a section titled "Now That You've Finished the Story...". In this section, there's an area for children to answer a few questions about caring for others, their friends, and lists some ideas on how to be caring.

    The text was easy for my eight-year-old to read but a little challenging for my five-year-old. Both my son and eldest daughter told me the enjoyed the illustrations and the story. I feel it's gotten them to think about others more. After reading the book myself, I'm personally interested in the authors' real-life tale of the donkey that she adopted!

    This tale is best suited for boys and girls ages 5 years old up, in my opinion.

    This book was given me by Tyndale House for the purpose of reading and writing a review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    O, I absolutely adore Flash The Donkey Makes New Friends! And guess what? It's based on a real stray donkey adopted by author and illustrator, Rachel Anne Ridge. Flash was in one of the author's earlier books, Flash: The Homeless Donkey that Taught Me about Life, Faith, and Second Chances. Now that sounds quite interesting. I might need to grab myself a copy sometime.

    In this title, Flash The Donkey Makes New Friends, you can see it's a kids picture book. The story is about Flash, the Donkey was hurt and was taken care of by some wonderful animals that saw what happened to him. He doesn't feel like he belongs anywhere with no name, no home and no friends. What happens is a heartwarming story of new friendships and what it means to be a friend. A wonderfully funny and thoughtful book to share with little ones, or read alongside. It's bound to be a favorite after one read, and might even inspire a little pajama reading party too! This is a book to be shared and treasured.
