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.

You know it's a good book when the kids want to read it again! :-)
Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I'm Gonna Throw Up! is definitely as fun and silly as it sounds. The kids really enjoyed the humor along with the comical illustrations. I have to admit I even got a good laugh from it, but my favorite part was the message of trusting and obeying God. The author, Troy Schmidt, does a wonderful job at working the message into the story so the kids can enjoy it and learn from it all at the same time.
I also appreciated the 'Parent Connection' feature at the end that walked me through how to discuss the story with the kids. There was even a little activity for the kids experience what it might have been like to be inside a whale, which they thought was great!
I'd highly recommend Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I'm Gonna Throw Up! to anyone who wants to tell the story of Jonah to their kids in a new and fun way.
