The uniqueness of this book is that the Lord, through a message given to a church on a Palm Sunday, inspired it. The message is for all ages, but especially for the young. It is meant to provide a sense of being special to the Lord no matter the child’s age or situation. It brings the child and parent into a bond, while telling the story of a Saviour who loves both of them. It helps take away the fear of death with the knowledge that Jesus has provided a Heaven. It shows that Jesus rewards us no matter how small the task may seem and that He never forgets to reward. The story is biblically correct in that Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem on that day. If we are to lift up any animal on Palm Sunday it should be not a rabbit but a donkey, which is a sign of meekness and peace.
