Description

Tiny Bible Tales, a new series of board books, shares the stories of the Bible's bravest heroes. With gentle, rhyming text, this book tells the tale of Jonah getting swallowed by the great whale. And with illustrations depicting these heroic Biblical characters as children, readers can easily put themselves directly in the story.

Little Jonah hears God say,
Help the people to obey.

After Jonah sets sail against God's command, he finds himself in the belly of a great whale. Trapped there for three days and three nights, he learns a valuable lesson in forgiveness.
