This jolly, interactive board book features indented patterns and trails on every page for children to follow with their finger as they read the story. Children can trace Jonah's hurried footprints as he runs away, the tossing of the boat over the bumpy waves, the whale's big gulp as he swallows Jonah, Jonah's big exit afterwards, and finally his footsteps as he completes his journey toward Nineveh.
By enabling children to interact with the story in a tactile way, the storyline becomes more concrete and engaging, and adds a fun touch to story time for early learners.
