Eileen Spinelli and her husband Jerry Spinelli have written some of my favorite books to share with children. Okay, so they are some of MY favorites. This one is another favorite. Jonah's Whale is the retelling of the Biblical story with a twist. It is told from the Whale's perspective. The whale is happy living and playing in the ocean. One day a storm come up and he sees a boat. A man in the boat is telling the other men to throw him into the water to stop the storm. God speaks to the whale and tells him to save the man. This is such a great lesson to talk about with your young one. If God expects obedience from the animals then we need to obey God as well. The illustrations are so gorgeous that they could each be framed and hung. This is one that I will enjoy sharing with my granddaughter. Because I like it so much I'm purchasing a copy to keep here on my shelves for all of my grandchildren to share.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
