Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I'm Gonna Throw Up! Giveaway

Once again, I am blessed with an opportunity to review a Christian Children's book. This one has a catchy title and has a great message to tell our kids. "Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah in my Stomach and I Think I'm Gonna Throw Up!" is a rather long title for a children's book, but it will grab a kids attention and make him or her curious. I sure was. In the end, I found this to be a cute story with a great message. 
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. 

About the Author:

He is currently the lead writer for The American Bible Challenge hosted by Jeff Foxworthy on the Game Show Network. Troy and his wife have three sons.

The series:  This is just the first in a series!  Other books available 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!
This is a very cute book. It is narrated by the whale that swallowed Jonah. It tells his side of the story of how Jonah got in his stomach in the first place and what happened over the course of three days. Beautifully illustrated and charming, this book will surely capture the attention of your children (and some adults too!). Although it is a Bible lesson aimed at young children, the story itself is cute and has situations children will relate to. In the end, it teaches children to trust in God even if it’s in a situation you do not like.
At the very back, it has a “Parent Connection” activity. There are questions to ask your little one and an activity where the child gets to play the part of Jonah. It’s really cute and I think it’s a great lesson.
