" One of my favourite books when I was little. Rediscovering it now and it's still just as nice. An in-SPIER-ed tale! " said.

" August 2017 - this is one of those books that I distinctly remember reading as a kid. You can flip through quickly and get the gist of the story, or linger over each panel (it's almost like a wordless comic book) and see a hundred tiny stories play out. I have a soft spot for Spier's style, and Ben enjoyed this one, too. " said.

" This book opens with "....But Noah fond grace in the eyes of the Lord." The only other words are found on the first page after the title page and it is a poem and list of animals titled "The Flood, Jacoubus Revius (1586-1658). The rest of the book has alluring illustrations of the ark and the flood and how it occurred. This would be great for children to tell the story themselves or in a writing lesson add their own words. " said.

"While the book is very interesting to me, I find it difficult to truly praise a book that has so few words. Yet, if I am being honest, my personal views lead me to believe that this is a wonderful book. It tells a much beloved Bible tale in beautiful illustrations. It is quite deserving of the Caldecott award.

I think this book does provide the perfect opportunity to allow your toddler to tell you a story using the pictures. You could really see how much of the story that your child actually knows.
" said.

"This retold story of Noah’s Ark uses bright colors to appeal to young children. The fine detail in the pictures includes most animals a child would think of like giraffes, elephants, hippos, dolphins, and a pig. Spier takes this passage from the Bible and makes it into an understandable story for a young reader. I remember reading this story as a child and looking at all the different animals and brightly colored rainbow and being amerced in the book. Although, you have to be careful using this story in a classroom. I personally wouldnt use it in a lesson or have it on my shelf because it is a biblical book that some families may not be okay with their child reading." said.

"If I can remember to read this without reminding myself that people actually believed this happened, I can really enjoy myself. The illustrations are rich and beautiful. The humor was subtle and enjoyable. But I also saw an unexpected amount of character growth: Noah, sitting alone and in despair in a room of the ark at night (his family, oddly, was absent through most of the book), the state of the ark after everything had left it. The story also did not forget the tragedy: watching the left behind animals submerging slowly under the flood. Man, dark! When I concentrate on the beauty of all of these pieces, the logistics of this truly believed mythological story don't really matter anymore. What a gem." said.

" What a realistic representation of life on the ark. " said.

" Peter Spier's retelling of Noah's Ark is stunning. " said.
