Little Burro

Little Burro
By Jim Arnosky
G.P. Putnam's Sons, 2013. Unpaged picture book.

Little Burro is happy in her canyon home, eating dry brush and juicy cactus. When her family decides they want to leave the canyon, Little Burro has a howling fit and digs her heels in in protest. Alas, she has to join the rest of the burro band, and they cross the desert together. They find a beautiful lake, and Little Burro falls quickly in love with this new setting. Author/illustrator Jim Arnosky has created a soothing, lush landscape of words and pictures. This would be a wonderful addition to any classroom, but especially those in Utah schools.
