This board book tells the story of Noah’s Ark through simple and amusing illustrations accompanied by a text full of animal sounds and movement words. Reading the book is a lively, interactive learning experience. As children look at the color images of the animals, they can imitate the sounds and motions that the animals make. Only at the end does Noah’s family appear and board the Ark along with their charges, as they enter two by two to avoid the stormy weather.
The story can be used to impart traditional Biblical content or not, as the parent or preschool teacher wishes. Either way, this is a fun shared experience for a child and adult or, perhaps, an older sibling, and is perfect for ages 1 through 5.
