The Book of Jonah by Peter Spier -- PUBLIC

Spier, Peter The Book of Jonah. PICTURE BOOK. Doubleday Books for Young Readers, 1985. $17.99. Content: G.

This illustrated book tells the story of Jonah in child-accessible text. An updated afterword details information about the history of the tale and the areas where it took place. Fans of Spier will appreciate his classic illustrations, and those trying to explain the book to children will appreciate the clarity provided by the text. Due to its strong religious content, this one might be more appropriate for a place of worship, private religious school, or public library.
