Review: The Wonky Donkey

'I was walking down the road and I saw a donkey. Hee haw! And he only had three legs! He was a wonky donkey.'

So begins this hilarious, catchy book about a crazy donkey. Not only is he wonky, but a new description is added on each page, until we end up with a: wonky, winky, honky-tonky, lanky, stinky-dinky, cranky, hanky-panky, spunky donkey.

Good luck to parents wrapping their mouths around that selection of words!

And not only is this a funny story that kids love reading, it’s also a song. The book comes with a CD that will really get the laughs going.

This is a super popular book and song that all kids will love.
