When I first recieved this book in the mail, I was excited at the potential I thought it had. I had seen some of the artwork over the internet, so I knew I was in for a treat at least visually. I opened it quickly and started thumbing through it. The first thing that I noticed was that the artwork was even better when you are holding the pages in your hand. Clearly, this is some of the best artwork of Noah's Ark ever produced. And that's not an exaggeration. I stood in awe as I looked at the great size of the inside of the ark, and the ark floating in the midst of a global flood. It really put into perspective the reality of the situation.
After looking at the brilliant illustrations, I started reading from the beginning, and I just couldn't put it down. The account that this book gives of Noah's story is so eye-opening that any doubts you might of had about the story of the flood slowly drift away, and you realize that it all was possible, and what Noah probably felt. I was really excited by the end of the book; it was thoroughly entertaining and informative.
I enthusiastically recommend this book, and hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I have.

This book is simply wonderful! The story is told in such a way as to aid you in truly believing the flood really happened. You can almost see the story unfolding before your very eyes. You can feel what Noah and his family must have felt, the awesome wonder of such an event! The pictures are so incredibly beautiful! Gorgeous, full-color, very detailed, real-to-life drawings! My only "warning" is this-Mr. Dooley uses some rather large "adult-type" words like "formidable" and "cataclysm", so this is not a book for small children, definitely written for older children and adults.

Charlotte Mason has a word for this book: twaddle. The True Story of Noah's Ark was a true disappointment. I ordered the book for our home-school library hoping for an insightful illustrated Biblical reference of Noah's Ark and the Global Flood. The book contains no shipbuilding insight, few Biblical references and no historical references. The omission of historical references was especially frustrating since people groups around the world have flood stories! The "audio CD" simply narrates the bland text with a musical background. The "pull out spread" is an elongated image of the ark and animals within it.

If you are looking for a sound illustrated thoughtful Christian analysis of Noah's Ark, check out Noah's Ark: Thinking Outside the Box. Lovett is a Christian mechanical engineer and shipwright. He constructed models of the ark to research his book and supports his findings with Biblical timelines, maritime insight and historical references.

This is an independent review from one a bit peeved about wasting money on a book unworthy of our family library.

I am so impressed with this book. It starts with beautiful pictures on really nice paper. The book is very well written and brings you into the time of Noah. The author has obviously spent a lot of time pondering this time period and brings you along with him to see what life may have been like for Noah, his family and those around hime. My kids loved the book and ask to have it read to them again and again.

Format: Hardcover
Noah's ark and the worldwide flood of Genesis are amongst the Bible events most often retold in children's picture books. Despite the fact that you likely have a copy of one (or more) Noah's ark picture books/board books etc. on your bookshelves, if you hold to a literal, young earth understanding of the book of Genesis this is one rendering of the historical event that you'll want to purchase.

Recounted in an in-depth, factual manner, author Tom Dooley presents the pre-flood world as it is sketched for us in the Bible, and realistically examines the design, dimensions, and logistics of life aboard the ark. As such, the books strength lies not in it's narrative re-telling (which is a bit dry) but simply in the fact that Dooley takes the flood seriously and treats it as history.

The True Story of Noah's Ark reads a bit more like a well-illustrated middle-school textbook than it does a storybook. Because of the reading style, we normally need to read through this book in two or three sittings. There is a lot of text, and my children can zone out after awhile.

Illustrator Bill Looney uses computer-illustration for the copious numbers of detailed pictures included in the book. While computer-illustration is never my favorite style, Looney manages to approximate traditional, realistic, detailed artwork with that medium than any other children's illustrator I've seen.

This lovely hardcover also comes with a CD complete with a reading of the book's text with background music and sound effects. If only there were indicators of when to turn the page, then pre-readers could have the book read to them by the author on CD.

What really sets this book apart is the strong emphasis on the historical reality of Noah and the flood.

My 6 year old grandson specifically asked for a book about Noah. After searching every bookstore within 50 miles and finding only the cartoonish type board books, or "legends" or no books at all. I ordered another book by Rein Poortlet and it was too adult (although it also is a beautiful book and very thought provoking).....and still not finding exactly what I was looking for........I ordered this book and prayed that it would be "THE BOOK." The book was delivered yesterday and it is "PERFECT." The language may be a bit over his head, but when read to him it can be paraphrased or how about this one.......explained. Mr. Looney's illustrations are beautiful......not your typical baby book animals marching in 2 by 2.......giraffes, lions, and elephants hanging over the sides of the ark.....but dogs and cats, birds, and even mammoths. The diversity is wonderful. This is "the Book" I was looking for. Beautifully written and illustrated, definately not your typical cartoonish story of Noah. The Ark is presented as it is described in the Holy Scriptures. I am going to purchase a second copy for my bookshelf.
