Book Review: Jonah and the Great Big Fish

Jonah and the Great Fish by Rhonda Gowler Greene and illustrations by Margaret Spengler is a charming rhyming re-telling of the story of the Prophet Jonah.  This book is aimed accurately at children 4-8 year olds considering that most pages contains about one to two sentences.  The illustrations have soft blurred edges but none the less are colorful and vivid enough to capture the attention of the young reader.  I also did appreciate that the book is about 9 x 9 inches.  A nice and comfortable size for little hands to grasp.

The Biblical story of Jonah is one of my daughter's absolute favorites.  She thoroughly enjoys reading how Jonah disobeyed the Lord and the consequences his disobedience caused.  When we received this book she was excited to say the least.  She eagerly listened and asked questions.

Children's books re-telling Bible stories often omit much pertinent information therefore it is the parents responsibility to Biblically and accurately fill in the gaps.  We did enjoy this book and recommend it to any growing child's library.

Disclosure of Material: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review program, which requires an honest, though not necessarily positive, review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
