Hey God...Review and GIVEAWAY

I love telling my children Bible Stories.  I love listening to them as they think through them and ask questions I never would have thought of!  I love how their minds work and the innocence they possess.

I really love it when a product comes along that can help me teach my kids a love for The Word.  HEY GOD, I'VE GOT SOME GUY NAMED JONAH IN MY STOMACH AND I THINK I'M GOING TO THROW UP! is just such a book.  This book is adorable and creative in it's approach.  I love the illustrations and the different way of looking at the familiar story of Jonah.  In this book 'the whale tells his side of the story' and it is precious.  This is a great book for the grade school and younger set although I would have my olders read it to my youngers anytime the youngers wanted them to.  That way they are both hearing the Truth in the book!

How adorable are these illustrations?

In the back there is also a Parent Connection.  This is a page to help you as the parent connect the dots with your children and get them talking about the story.  There is also a Do section to put into action what they have learned.

This is a really great book that would be a sweet addition to any household.  And I have one to GIVEAWAY!!  More about that in a minute...

About the book:
Oh sure, we've all heard the story of Jonah and the Whale a hundred 
times. But have we heard it from the perspective of the whale who experienced that history-making event?

Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I'm Gonna Throw Up! imagines how that great sea creature from the incident might tell his side of the story, helping kids ages 4 to 8 discover a creative way of learning about that guy who was supposed to go to Ninevah.
The "Parent Connection" feature (inside the book) will help moms and dads take the story further with scripture references and tips on how to talk with their children about what really happened.

I missed the sign-up for this book and it looks so cute! I've heard great things about it (from Roberta). I'd love to win!
My favorite Bible Story . . .hmmm . . that's a tough one. I really like the story of Joseph and the story of Esther - two people placed in really tough circumstances, yet very much used by God. Hope it's ok to pick 2.
