"Coconut the donkey walks to school every day with jovial Mrs. Pie, who works in the kitchen. The children look forward to seeing Coconut, but their teacher, Mr. Clapper, tries to shoo him away. One day, he offers Coconut carrots to lure him into the woods. When Mr. Clapper tumbles into a ditch, Coconut proves his worth and befriends his former detractor. With nice pacing, precise word choice, and a well-cadenced text, the story is a natural for reading aloud...and there's nothing old-fashioned about the multicultural classroom depicted in lively, genial pictures...which portray the children, adults, and donkey with warmth and good humor." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
