On Noah's Ark

by

Jan Brett's intricate illustrations against a beautiful papyrus background make a stunning picture book of a favorite story-this time featuring Noah's granddaughter. As the floodwaters rise, she helps take the animals onto the ark and get them settled down. But it's not easy when giraffes are sleeping next to pandas and lions are curled up with turkeys. Finally the gentle rocking of the ark lulls them all to sleep until the waters recede and Grandpa Noah, his family, and all the animals leave the ark. This simple telling, combined with extraordinary illustrations of every animal imaginable, makes On Noah's Ark perfect for young and old.

    Read this to a mixed age Sunday School class and it was all age appropriate with a nice jumping off point for discussions about what it was like on the ark. The illustrations, as always, were beautifu...

    This is the simplest form of a Noah's Ark story I've ever read. So simple it actually leaves out all the turmoil of evil men, of Noah being laughed at for being obedient to God--well, it even leaves o...
