Jonah's Riddle

By Marcia Trimble

27920 Roble Alto Street
Los Altos Hills, CA 94022

Using the sound of the sea as heard in a seashell, an islander named Jonah teaches a cowboy and a sailor that stories can only come alive when someone really listens to them. This book is written for kids ages 4 to 8 and retails for $15.95. The website includes a four-page PDF stage script that enables kids to act out the book! The website also has sheet music and interactive ideas and games so that the book could be used as the theme for a children's party or homeschool co-op event.

The book ultimately teaches children through riddles and rhymes that we all have a story to share with others. The illustrations are bright and whimsical. I hope you enjoy sharing this story with your children!

Warning: date() []: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EDT/-4.0/DST' instead in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 145
