Review:Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah In My Stomach and I Think I'm Going to Throw Up!

About the Book:
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:
 Did you ever wonder what it was like from the whale's point of view? Well wonder no more. Troy Schmidt tries to explain in his latest book Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah In My Stomach and I Think I'm Going to Throw Up! The author has found a very creative and imaginative way to explain the classic Bible story about Jonah&the Whale.

 Jonah wasn't the only one that was told by God that he had a job to do. That whale also was asked to do something very important that day. It was to teach Jonah a lesson but it was an important one none the less. We all know how the story with Jonah ended and well the whale soon relized that from then on he was going to do exactly what the Lord asked of him too.

 This was a very enjoyable book. My children actually loved hearing what the whale thought of the whole experience so much so that they would like to read the authors other books that are written along the same lines. This is just the first in a series!  Other books available include Hey God, Can You Stop the Rain so I Can Get off Noah's Smelly Ark? and Hey God, I'm Having an Awful Vacation in Egypt Thanks to Moses!
