    1. 1.(Begin by reading from page 6). “‘Bad donkey!’ shouted the farmer. With that, Jackson sat down – and the vegetables fell from his back and rolled down the hill. Furious, the farmer began looking for stick, to beat the stubborn animal.” (Show students the picture from page 7). “What do you think is happening here? Why is the donkey refusing to go up the hill?” (Student responses) “Remember, we have been talking about using our manners and showing how we care for others. One of t [...]

    2. The farmer makes the donkey work hard and carry loads up the hill. One day the donkey stopped in the middle of the hill and wouldn't move. The farmer was about to beat him, when his son came to save the donkey. He whispered something in his ear and the donkey decided to move. The father asked how he did that, and the son said his mom taught him its the little things like please and thank you that can make a world of a difference.Teachable points: manners, please, thank you, the little things mat [...]

    3. The story has a lot of potential. It is about a man using his donkey to take his goods to the market. When the donkey sits and does not move, the man takes a stick and is about to beat it. So that's what's wrong with the book. The nice thing about the book is the messageatitude.

    4. There's a lot of power in those magic words -- please and thank you.The soft edged, warmly colored illustrations are appealing -- and the donkey is very expressive.

    5. Day after day, a donkey named Jackson obediently carries a farmer's wares to the market, but one day he decides not to do so. In his own quiet way, he goes on a sit-down strike. His owner is furious, and pushes, pulls, and yells at him to get him to move. Enraged at the recalcitrant beast, he prepares to strike Jackson with a strike. Before he can do so, though, his son intervenes by whispering in Jackson's ear. The donkey immediately gets up, and all three head to market, dividing the load amon [...]

    6. Every morning Jackson the donkey carries his heavy load of vegetables up the hill and to the market. Though he works hard, he never complains and never rests. One morning, Jackson does something out of the ordinary and stops halfway up the hill and sits down. No amount of cajoling by the farmer can get Jackson to move.When the farmer becomes frustrated to the point of threatening to beat the donkey, his wife, Beauty, sends their son, Goodwill, to help. The boy whispers in the Jackson's ear and t [...]

    7. When Jackson the donkey refuses to carry his load of vegetables over the hill, his owner tries to get him to move using whatever methods he can think of including the threat of violence. But the donkey continues to balk. When Goodwill, the farmer's son, is sent by his mother to help his father with the stubborn donkey, he demonstrates in a very sweet way that the smallest things do make the biggest difference. Simply thanking the donkey for his service encourages the donkey enough to get up as d [...]

    8. Grades K-5. Jackson the donkey has carried heavy loads to and from the market every day. He feels unappreciated even though he's doing his job well. One day he sits down in frustration. The farmer is about to whip him, when his son runs up the mountain to show him the problem.Kindness and manners go a long way to show people (and donkeys) how you feel. Show courtesy and appreciation to those around you.

    9. The story reads like an old fable, but in this day and age there are better ways to teach your child manners. The characters name are ludicrous and heavy-handed, the plot of beating the animal is unnecessary and the resolution makes no sense because animals cannot understand English. I would not recommend.

    10. The power of gratitude is examined in this lovely picture books. A faithful pack animal has finally had enough of the ingratitude expressed by his owner in this story. It will take the wisdom of a young child to help the animal feel appreciated.

    11. #Africa #empathy #kindness #appreciationtells the benefit of using please and thank you and appreciation for the work that the donkey is doing.

    12. Kindness counts, and this sweet story teaches both the importance of politeness and of being kind to animals.

    13. I realize the father decided in the end not to beat the animal, but he had planned to in the first place. Beating animals should not be in a picture book when this age can be so impressionable.

    14. Please and Thank You go very far in life. "you can't always get what you want" but saying please and thank you might help!

    15. I like how the child is used to teach. The illustrations do a lot to help me like this somewhat didactic little book.
