Sure, Jonah’s a famous guy. We all know how he ended up in the belly of the fish. We’ve heard his story a hundred times.
But have you ever stopped to consider the story from the whale’s point of view?
In Hey God, I’ve Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I’m Gonna Throw Up! the whale gets to tell his side of the story. And this whale will have you giggling through the story. At least that’s what happens when this book is the bedtime story at our house.
Hey God, I’ve Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I’m Gonna Throw Up! helps kids think about Jonah’s story from a slightly different perspective. It also has a Parent Connection feature inside the book to help parents take the story one step further. There are Scripture references and tips for talking with kids about what really happened.
And while you’re checking out the whale’s story, be sure to check out Hey God, Can You Stop the Rain So I Can Get off Noah’s Stinky, Smelly Ark? (where the raven tells his side of the story) and Hey God, I’m Having an Awful Vacation in Egypt Thanks to Moses! (where the frog tells her side of the story).
