Hey God, I've got some guy... Book Review and Giveaway


OK--I don't know about you, but check out the title of this new children's book, "Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Names Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I'm Gonna Throw Up." Just reading the title I knew I had to get my hands on this book. And it was worth it!! My kids and I laughed our way through the whole book...while they learned. 

I love when authors take a unique look at a Biblical story and teach the story in a way that engages children. Kudos to Troy Schmidt for doing such a fantastic job. I'm also glad that there is a parent guide on the back cover to help us all learn and be able to teach our children with even more depth. 

I can't wait to see the other books in this series. We loved learning about the most famous whale in history!

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. 

About the Author: 
Troy Schmidt has writing and video production credits ranging from assignments with Disney (The Mickey Mouse Club) and Nickelodeon to Max Lucado's Hermie franchise. He is currently the lead writer for The American Bible Challenge hosted by Jeff Foxworthy on the Game Show Network. Troy and his wife have three sons.

The series:  This is just the first in a series!  Other books available include Hey God, Can You Stop the Rain so I Can Get off Noah's Smelly Ark? and Hey God, I'm Having an Awful Vacation in Egypt Thanks to Moses!
