I am beyond thrilled to share an ADORABLE book with you and can hardly wait to give it away to one of you!

BOOK trailer: here

This PRECIOUS book is geared for ages 4-8 and my 6 year old absolutely LOVES it!  Guess what?  His Mom does, too!

Ever wonder what the WHALE thought about Jonah being in his belly?  I mean, really?  Don't most of us with any childhood background in church know all about Jonah?  Don't we know the story of what happened to Jonah when he was disobedient multiple times to God's calling?  What about that whale?  

This book is part of a series that releases tomorrow, May 1st.  Others in the series, so far, are about what it was like to be on that smelly ark with Noah and wandering around Egypt thanks to Moses.  The books are affordable (can be purchased HERE) and we are in love with them.

Aside from retelling the Bible story from a different perspective in a humorous, catchy way, the illustrations are VERY engaging!  We honestly couldn't wait to turn the page to see what was on the next one!  

My son LOVED it and I love that he loved having it read to him and reading it himself.  Another GREAT feature is something called "Parent Connection".  This section helps parents take the book a bit deeper with scripture references about the "moral" of the book (in this case obedience).  Great questions to ask.  Activities to do. FANTASTIC for some family devotional fun!
