Jonah and the Bear

 Jonah and the Bear
The Bible Amigos
Frank Fraser
Three friends named Wall, Donk, and Edge go where ever their flying bible takes them trying to rescue other animals while spreading the news about God's love. Each book in the series is based on a Biblical story and helps the young reader grasp the meaning behind the stories. The book begins with the young friends playing in the fall leaves.  But when the flying Bible appears they jump on to rescue someone. The Bible story helps them know how to help the little animal in trouble. The story ends with several Bible verses.

My children loved the illustrations which helped to tell the story. The Bible story is woven into the modern story very seamlessly. The lesson on sharing is something that every child should hear. The way the story is told will open up opportunities to discuss why the bear was having problems. The Bible verses at the end add dimension and help tie everything together. Because of the fun interpretation children will better remember the lessons they learned while reading. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone with young children.

I received this book free of charge from Barbour Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
