Has a Donkey Ever Brought You Breakfast in Bed???

Have you ever been served breakfast in bed??  Come to think of it, I can't remember ever getting breakfast in bed.  So I was already jealous reading the title of the latest book in our collection.  

We had the privilege of reading the latest title by Pat Brannon, and we are loving it!!!

It is not unusual to see a gorilla beating its chest at the zoo, but it is unusual to see it boxing with a mosquito. You’ve probably seen camels walking through the desert on television, but I bet you’ve never seen them in a bowling league at the bowling alley. I’m sure you’ve seen chickens strut around in the chicken pen from time to time, but I bet you’ve never seen a sunburned chicken. Kangaroos are fun animals that normally hop all over the place, but I’m sure that you’ve never seen them hop on someone’s head. Just like humans, animals sometimes do strange and unexpected things. Step inside this book of wonders and enjoy the animals that are sure to capture your attention.

This silly story has become a favorite with the girls.  It has been more than just story time.  The girls have enjoyed getting up and pretending to be the animals or do the activity that the animals are doing on each page.  We have also gotten rhyming practice in!  Lydia and Caty both enjoy repeating the rhyming words.  I have really enjoyed that this book is getting them up and moving, especially Caty.  

I have tried to turn the fun a little toward the educational side.  The rhyming words are a great start.  We also have tried to come up with more silly things that an animal could do.  This story is great for read togethers but also Lydia has even tried reading it on her own, and the wording is done in such a way for her to guess the words using picture clues.  

It is well written and I highly recommend this title to become an addition to your home.  

You can purchase this title from Amazon for only $10.00.  This will be a loved title for time to come at our house.  

Pat Brannon has written other titles, including:

Pat Brannon is a Christian and children’s author and a Southern Gospel songwriter from Amory, MS. Having grown up in a large musical family, writing songs, books and poems are like breathing to Pat. She has a passion for writing and pursues that passion with all the gusto she can muster. And, she loves people. Growing up on the musical stage, Pat loves singing and performing. Since the age of nine, she has been a member of three bands and appeared on the small stage, radio and television. She is a regular vocalist at Meadowood Baptist Church and is an active member of the Adult Sanctuary Choir. When Pat isn’t singing, you can look for her at schools doing her full monologue in character about bullying. Not only is this presentation great for schools, it’s perfect for churches also. This is a program everyone should see. Although Pat was born in Morrilton, Arkansas, in 1981 she and her family moved to Amory, MS. She is married to Howard Brannon and they have two sons-Jason and Shawn-and one precious grandchild whom Pat lovingly calls Elijah Nic. You may reach Pat at or
