I Yam a Donkey



It's a picture book, it's on VBPL Recommends, it's recommended by a librarian, and it has characters that aren't human. (I mean you can't go wrong with a donkey and a potato, can you?) How many more Reading Marathon categories can you ask for? Add in that it is truly hilarious and I Yam a Donkey by Cece Bell has just about everything you could ask for.

It's hard to do puns that little kids can get, but even the youngest of grade schoolers will be laughing out loud at this funny tale. Is the potato a donkey or yam he a potato? Bad grammar leads the way in providing some clever tricks to not only provide a laugh but to also teach children the best way to say things. Even if you're not a kid, you'll like this one, so check it out today.

Don't forget, when you read a picture book to your child, you both get to count it for credit in the Summer Reading Program AND you get to count it as one of your books in the reading marathon. Just pick one of the many categories that you want to count it as. Happy Reading!
