Hey God, I’ve Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I’m Gonna Throw Up!




About the Book: 

Oh sure, we’ve 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 (inside the book) 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.

My Review

This book was absolutely adorable and my children really enjoyed it! The illustrations are beautiful and the whole concept of the story is great. We have all heard the story of Jonah told a hundred times over, but never like this. I really enjoyed a new perspective to this story and humor in a book is always a plus. The title of this story grabs your attention almost immediately and leaves you anxious to discover what the whale’s side of the story is. The book also includes a great resource in the back of the book to help you discuss the story with your children. This is an all around wonderful book for your children to learn and discuss an important lesson and I highly recommend it to all my fans!
