Brighty of the Grand Canyon by Marguerite Henry is definitely one of our all time favorite books! The story is based on the actual incidents in the life of a Grand Canyon burro. I first read this book as a child and last winter Connor & I read it together. We usually read 2 chapters a night when we read a book together but Connor would beg for more so we would stay-up late each night to read more chapters.
