The Whale’s Side of the Story! A Children’s Book by @troyeschmidt

The Whale’s Side of the story is not often thought of. This fun little book takes us down a fun little look at, perhaps, just how that poor whale felt. In my mind, I can’t imagine Jonah tasting good, being all sweaty and such.

Isn’t it funny how we sometimes miss the things that should be obvious?  This story, from the wonderful imagination of Troy Schmidt, brings to light one of those obvious little things. My whole life I have been told the story of Jonah and never once even thought about what it might be like from the whale’s perspective! What I really love is the lesson the whale reinforces: TRUST in God!

Don’t miss your chance to go down an adventure and hear The Whale’s Side! It’s a wild ride and one we often don’t think of.The Whale's Side of the Story! A Children's Book by @troyeschmidtOn the back cover of the book is a tool to help you connect with your child on a deeper level regarding the story of Jonah but more importantly, it will help them to build that foundation upon his word! I especially love that it’s a foundation that they will always be able to build on! 😀 God is great that way! 😀

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book. (BTW, read it by myself to myself LOL).

It is an adorable story and a simple read. The book is a quick enough read that I think we could get even the little little ones to pay attention for a minute.  While they state that it is for ages 4 to 8, I think even the 2-3 year olds would enjoy it. Given, of course, the right narration! (An important factor, indeed!) *My favorite part of reading stories to little ones, FYI*

The Whale's Side of the Story! A Children's Book by @troyeschmidtA Little Perspective From the Whale’s Side

Oh sure, we’ve all heard the story of Jonah and the Whale a hundred times. But have we heard it from the perspective of the whale who experienced that history-making event?
Hey God, I’ve Got Some Guy Named Jonah in My Stomach and I Think I’m Gonna Throw Up! imagines how that great sea creature from the incident might tell his side of the story, helping kids ages 4 to 8 discover a creative way of learning about that guy who was supposed to go to Ninevah.
The “Parent Connection” feature (inside the book) will help moms and dads take the story further with scripture references and tips on how to talk with their children about what really happened.

In my mind, I think I imagine the whale coughing a bit and then hating the taste of whatever he just swallowed. I can picture him wondering why it is that his belly was talking, imagine him talking to God going…. ummm…. so this is gross. LOL

I would absolutely love to hear what you think the whale’s side might have been!


Hi all! My name is Kaycee. I am now learning to navigate life as a single woman. Turns out, it's not all about husband and children. Who knew? So, I'm on a journey of self discovery. I have 5 children, 3 of which are married, 5 2 are in Heaven (my beautiful baby Acadia Reign and my Diva Princess Tara Elizabeth), and 7 grandchildren! Plus, a ton of fabulous nieces and nephews! My educational background is in Psychology and Child Development but my heart is in ministry, crafts, fun, reviews and my website, My Crafty Zoo. Or at least it was, now I'm learning who I really am, beneath all of the busy family life. It's an adventure to be sure. I look forward to continuing to share my life through word and pictures with you and love hearing your feedback! Thank you for taking the time to read and allowing me to share! I look forward to reading your comments!
