" Everything about this book is great. " said.

" 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.

"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.

" 1978 Caldecott medal.Very intricate drawings. Each scene has so many things to look at. Each time you flip through it you see something new. " said.

" I'm a follower of Jesus and I know the story from the Bible well. I did not like how graphic this is for children. It's not exactly a children-friendly tale to begin with but its heartbreaking to see how all the non-chosen animals die. Yes, I know that's the fact of the story... I just felt it was a little too graphic. " said.
