The Story of Jonah by Alice Joyce Davidson

The Story of Jonah was written by Alice Joyce Davidson and was illustrated by Victoria Marshall. It is an Alice in Bibleland Storybook and was published in 1984 by Grolier Enterprises Inc. The book is 31 pages.

In this story Alice is a little girl who goes to Bibleland, where she learns the story of Jonah by being a casual observe in his life. This book does a wonderful job of telling the story about Jonah. Alice learns three important things from her time with Jonah; we must obey God, God is everywhere and God has mercy, pity and forgives. She and Jonah both learned about God’s mercy and forgiveness and we must remember that we need to have those too.

The illustrations were realistic. Children reading the book can see how many times they can spot Alice in the story. I did not like how Jonah had the same look on his face in almost all the pictures. It was also a very interesting fish that swallowed Jonah.

My 4-year-old and 2-year-old both enjoyed this book. The fish was a favorite, but I think that the rhyming of every other line in each verse kept their attention.
