Catch Me If You Can

AGE 2-6

Na’ama and Carmel are best friends at their pre-school and both have little gray donkeys. But Na’ama’s is a toy donkey that can be kept in a drawer while Carmel’s is a real one that lives in a stable behind his house. “Which donkey is better?” Na’ama asks her mom. “Well, you can play with your donkey, and you can ride on Carmel’s,” says Mom. But Na’ama is sure she can also ride on her donkey. After all, he answers when she speaks to him! All of a sudden, her donkey starts growing. When he’s big enough, Na’ama jumps onto his back and the two set off for an adventure. The donkey gallops so fast that they pass Carmel’s mother’s car and his father’s motorbike. Na'ama’s donkey turns out to be a super-donkey ‒ he can even fly and pass a speeding train!
On their way home they meet Carmel on his donkey. Na’ama wants to tell him about her adventures, but then Mom wakes her and the dream fades away. That’s okay, though, because Mom tells her that Carmel has invited her to ride with him on his donkey!
A story full of humor and imagination!
