Book Review: "Jonah and the Great Big Fish" by Rhonda Gowler Greene"

"Jonah and the Great Big Fish" by Rhonda Gowler Greene is a retelling of the Bible story of Jonah and the great fish.

The text is given as a rhyme, which is fun for the kids.  I also really liked how they varied the font to go along with the action of the story.   Like they used a small font for the word "small" and "whipped" looks like a wave, to name only a couple examples. The pictures are colorful and fun, but they look out of focus which hurt my eyes (but would probably be fine for kids).  I liked how it did call it a "fish" rather than a "whale" as that is what the Bible says.  The picture shows a whale, but it was called a fish.

"Jonah and the Great Big Fish" is geared for children in the 4-8 year range.  I think that kids younger than this would also enjoy it along with their parents or grandparents.

"Jonah and the Great Big Fish" is available in hardcover edition and is a sturdy, well made book.
