Genre: Children's Nonfiction

"God told Jonah to obey, said, 'Go to Ninevah this day.' But, stubborn Jonah fled instead. Didn't do just what God said."

Jonah's disobedience landed him inside a big fish! And there he had time to think and pray.

Children will feel the waves and hear the splash as Jonah sinks "down and down and down" into the belly of the fish. This story serves as an excellent reminder of how important it is to listen to God.

JONAH AND THE GREAT BIG FISH is a totally cute illustrated Bible story for the preschooler and young reader in your life. Written in rhyme, with fun sized letters and font to illustrate the point, it clearly shows the story how wet and scared the sailors were, how frightened Jonah must've been as he was swallowed by the whale, and what he did while in the whale's stomach.

Parents and Grandparents and other caregivers will want to pick up a copy of JONAH AND THE GREAT BIG FISH. Also perfect for church nurseries, preschools, and libraries. Recommended.

Ages 4 - 8. $9.99 hard cover. 32 pages.

Good review. My pastor recently preached an excellent sermon about Jonah. This book sounds like a good resource to teach children the importance of obedience to God's word.
