GIVEAWAY and Book Review: Jonah's Whale Book

I thought this was such an interesting idea for a book; Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I'm Gonna Throw Up! by Troy Schmidt is the whale's perspective from the story of Jonah and the whale. In the story, the whale doesn't want to do what God was asking of him, similar to Jonah, which was to swallow this human (which whales think taste gross, like dirt -LOL!) I have read this book to both my kids several times and they both enjoy it. My 7 year old is able to get the corny play on words that is used in several spots and the jokes in there, which go over my 3 1/2 year old's head. The book is designed for ages 4-8. I think this was an enjoyable book to read to my kids and it helps illustrate in a new way, the same Jonah story, about listening to God. There are also other books in the series I would love to read to my kids that 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!

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.
