My Thoughts:
 As soon as my 4 year old (Riley) saw this book, she looked at me and said Momma did you get us another book to read.  Of course my response to her is, Yes!  There is no waiting until bed time to read, we must read now.  So I read her the book, and I must say that she was very quiet through out the book, we laughed and she asked questions that I answered for her as we read.



Now more about the book!  I would assume that everyone has heard the bible story of Jonah and the Whale, well that story is pretty much told from Jonah's perspective, well this cute little book is written from the Whale's perspective.  You probably asking yourself, I did, how is this story going to be told by the whales perspective and still get the same point across?  I must say that it does, and it id just pure fun and comedic.  I wasn't really sure at first just how this story was going to fit in with the traditional story...

I will not giveaway just how it all works out, but I do have a copy of the book to giveaway to one of my LUCKY readers! This is a must read and I can promise nothing except that you and your children will enjoy it!
