Oh sure, we'll all heard the story of Jonah and the Whale a hundred times. But have we heard it from the perspective of the whale who experienced that history-making event?

Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I'm Gonna Throw Up! imagines how that great sea creature from the incident might tell his side of the story, helping kids ages 4 to 8 discover a creative way of learning about that guy who was supposed to go to Ninevah.

The "Parent Connection" feature will help moms and dads take the story further with scripture references and tips on how to talk with their children about what really happened. There's even a free online app to make this bright retelling even more animated and interactive.

My Review :
My daughters both absolutely loved this book!  They couldn't stop giggling while reading it over and over.  It is a funny story with somewhat dry humor at times that tells the story of "Jonah and the Whale" from the whale's point of view.  With entertaining illustrations, and comical wording; this story is one that will keep children and adults alike entertained from cover to cover.  It is definitely a book worth reading over and over.

  1. Sounds like a great story! You're right - these are stories kids have heard a million times and probably tune out. Having the story flipped around a little makes it fresh again. :)

  2. That is one long book title!! I'd be giggling too :)

  3. Thanks for the review and sharing this my niece will love this.
