it was amazing

You probably know the Biblical story of Jonah and the Whale and why Jonah was swallowed up. BUT, did you ever think about what the whale was thinking? Eileen Spinelli’s book, “Jonah’s Whale” answers that question!

I really liked this clever re-telling of the story Jonah and the Whale. It was interesting to see how Mrs. Spinelli told the story through the eyes of the whale. At one point in the story the whale gets a bit frustrated that he has a man in his belly and wonders “What now?” The illustrations in the book are marvelous and really add to the story. I think the book would make a great read aloud and an awesome bed-time story. I think its cool to see how authors can re-tell existing stories and I think Mrs. Spinelli did a great job with this one!
