I’ve asked the girls their thoughts about this book, and here’s what they had to say:
Like: I like the pictures. They’re funny. He was kicking around inside the fish.
Dislike: I don’t like him saying, “Hey God!”
Next book in the series: I want a story about Jesus because He is powerful!
Like: I like the words in the story. They are good. They are interesting.
Dislike: There is nothing that I don’t like.
Next book in the series: Esther from the point of view of Mordecai
Notes from Emily and Melody’s mom: I know that there’s debate on the whole ‘big fish’ and ‘whale’ thing, but I’m not going to say anything about that. I love that there is a lot of humor in this book, because a lot of times, people get the idea that the Bible is boring. You know, Leviticus can be very exciting to some people. :p The best part is the Parent Connection at the end of the book. It’s a helpful guide for parents to use to talk with their child more about the story.
