We read a lot of books. In fact, my kindergarten daughter has her own shelf on Goodreads where I keep track of what we read, so I can write them down at the end of the month on her Pizza Hut Book It! sheet. The Book It! program has ended for the year and now she must read 10 books a week to earn
ICE CREAM. Scoop by scoop, topping by topping. Last night we read ALL 10 for the week. Including the not yet released book below.
Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I'm Gonna Throw Up!
The whale tells his side of the story. The whale? Why not? Great concept for telling Bible stories. Even though my six year old knew the story, she really was captivated by this tale.

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! Imagine 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.
