Hey God, I've God Some Guy Named Jonah in my Stomach....

Another great review opportunity crossed my path and I was sure this was one the kid would like.   Over Easter he wrote portions of the Easter story from the perspective of various persons involved.  You can scroll down on the blog to read some of those.  This is a funny book about Jonah.. written from the perspective of the whale.  Right up our alley.   It is called- "Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah in my Somach and I think I'm Going to Throw Up,"  by Troy Schmidt

The writer for this book is also the lead writer on The American Bible Challenge which is hosted by Jeff Foxworthy on the Game Show Network.  And there will be more books coming out in this series including..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.   Sounds hilarious!  

In addition to the purchase page, you can see the author's facebook page.  For an inside peek, here is a video showing pages from the book.

This is a super fun book that kids of many ages would be delighted to have.  The theme is trusting God.  (Why does that topic keep smacking me in the face, even with kids' books!)  It is a lighthearted read of course, but there is a page at the end that lists things to read, things to think and things to do.  I do recommend purchasing this.. If you don't win it... 

Which brings me to the contest, again sponsored by the folks at Fly By Promotions.  This didn't work out so well last time.  I think Rafflecopter can be confusing.  Below there are options to enter.  The first one is very easy.  Just click on +1 and you will be entered with one point value.  If you are, or wish to follow this blog, you may use 'Google Friend Connect'.  You will see this on the side bar.  You can become my friend and then list your GFC name in the Rafflecopter space provided.  If you are already a friend you may also enter this but please indicate your GFC name in the Rafflecopter entry so I can verify if you win.  This is worth +3 and will allow you a greater chance to win.   You may also Tweet the contest and leave a link to your tweet as indicated.  This is a +2 entry. 

If you don't win..  I'd buy the book.  It's a keeper.
