Hey God, I've Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I'm Gonna Throw Up!  
The whale tells his side of the story

Even the youngest of my children can tell you the story of Jonah being swallowed by the Big Fish, and how Jonah was disobedient to God so God had to have the fish swallow him to teach him a lesson. What about the whale though? God must have spoken through him as well, and told him to go and swallow this human. As the whale is told this he says "Land creatures taste like dirt. YEEECCCCH". God asks the whale to trust Him. 
Though the whale tries to swim away and tell God no, God is bigger and had the whale swam poor Jonah. The whale goes to Dr. Crab to see what he can do, and Dr. Crab tells him he will just have to be patient. 
The whale asks God to forgive him for swimming away and to please get this human out of his stomach, but God isn't done with Jonah yet. 

I love that there is a Parent Connection in the back where you can read the scripture and discuss questions with your children. There are also fun ideas of things to do to incorporate hands on learning, like hide deep in a sleeping bag and pretend you are in the belly of the whale!
