Reviews - What do customers think about Whale And Jonah?
The Whale and Jonah Nov 11, 2008
The kids in my pre k class love the story and illustrations. The writing was perfect for their age.
Bright and inviting! Great book for infants and toddlers. Mar 31, 2008
Through simple rhyming text, this book tells the familiar Bible story from the whale's perspective. Offering more than the facts, this book reminds children that God offers forgiveness and mercy, but it's always best to obey. "It's a whale of a tale, but believe me, it's true ... Jonah found forgiveness then did what he should do." The pages are saturated with beautiful colors and deep contrasts.
What I Like: The illustrations are fabulous! They're so bright and stimulating; perfect for young, exploring eyes. Rhyming text often seems forced, but this author does a great job with it. The text is very natural. I also really like the way the author emphasizes God's mercy: she explains the whale not as a punishment, but as a way to keep Jonah safe until he promised to obey. Finally, I love the emphasis on truth.
What I Dislike: Nothing.
Age Appeal: The publisher says 6 and under, though I think it's most appropriate for 3 and under.
