Jonah and the Great Big Fish

We rated this book:


This book begins with God instructing Jonah to go to Nineveh. He needs to tell the people of the city to ask forgiveness. Jonah does not agree and therefore he flees. He climbs aboard a ship and sets sail. While sailing a great storm develops. Jonah is thrown overboard and is rescued by a great big fish. After spending three days in the belly of the fish praying to God, Jonah decides to go to Nineveh and announce the message that he has been given by God. I think the message to listen to God was made loud and clear.

The book is written with a rhyming beat, which made it more enjoyable for me. It’s a good retelling of the bible story Jonah and the Great Big Fish. I really liked how the author changed the fonts for certain words (such as whipped, sinked, and wide) that made them stand out more, so my mom changed her voice when reading it out loud.

I liked the illustrations but some of the people in the background were blurry and I couldn’t make out their faces. It would have been nice if the pictures were a bit sharper.
