Recently I was given the opportunity to review Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I'm Going to Throw Up.  Since I'm always looking for something different for my little guy I gladly volunteered to read it and share a review with my readers.       I'm glad I did!


This is a retelling of the Bible story of Jonah and the big fish, told  from the viewpoint of the fish.  What a fun way to rethink the story.  My little guy loved the colorful illustrations and thought the idea of a fish throwing up was hilarious.  (Yes, he's 7, and that's a fun    visual for him.)  There's a great parent page at the end with ideas for discussion and activities to help the story connect for your   children too.  While I wouldn't use only this book to tell my child   the story, (mostly because Jonah's disobedience and       consequences aren't described very much), it is a cute retelling of the story.  After reading the book we discussed the reasons why Jonah ended up in that fish and why we should follow God's    commands.  I'm fairly confident that after reading this story my   son will definitely think of this story when we discuss            disobedience.  The different twist is like a mnemonic for my son. as far as it sinking in to stay tucked in his brain.  This fun book   definitely gets a thumbs up for originality!  Troy did a great job    catching my son's attention while bringing the importance of    obedience to the front of his mind.  I'm thinking we'll be referring  to this book on and off when the little guy is being a stinker and  not listening.  Thanks Troy!


Hey, I get to give away a copy too!  If you'd like a copy of this fun story leave me a comment at the end of this post.  I'll be drawing a winner at noon on May 7, 2013.  Good luck and Blessings!


****And the winner is Janelle!  Congratulations!!****

I have a 10 year old boy, who likes the weird and unusual. This sounds right up his alley!

I love to read to my nieces and nephews and would love to have a copy of this book, not only to read for myself but to share with them and grandchildren in the future. Sounds like a great version of Jonah and the whale and to hear it from the whales perspective will be a hit in our family. Thanks for the opportunity to receive a copy.
