Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Three-dimensional artwork of extraordinary richness highlights this verse retelling of the Noah story by the illustrator of The New Baby Calf. Reid's vibrantly colored, sculpted Plasticine illustrations give her pictures the illusion of depth seldom achieved with conventional techniques. The intricate spreads teem with activity rendered in real-as-life tactile detail: characters wear robes trimmed with textured embroidery; Noah's long beard descends in whorls like white icing on a cake; every painstakingly molded fin, feather and strand of fur on the arkful of animals begs to be touched. The palette is equally impressive, as the cloud-filled sky darkens and lightens again with the passing of the storm, and the deep blues of the sea offset the pinks and oranges of the sun-drenched landscape. There are cleverly crafted shifts in perspective, too, notably a bird's-eye-view of the animals boarding the ark. Only the text, consisting of original lyrics to a traditional tune, fails to match the art's sparkle: Reid tells the familiar tale in (occasionally limp) iambic tetrameter that sometimes sacrifices scansion for rhyme. Readers will nonetheless enjoy counting along as the animals--from the tiniest mice to the biggest elephants--clamber aboard this beguiling ark. Ages 5-8.

From Kirkus Reviews

Adopting the verse scheme of the traditional song, Reid recounts the building of Noah's Ark and writes a new couplet for each number up to ten (``And in came the animals six by six,/Pandas and penguins, all in a mix''). The animals aren't all named, but they're all countable in Reid's illustrations, formed in Plasticene on board for a vibrant, three-dimensional effect remarkable for its textures, lively expressions (Noah is saintly and benevolent, his wife a smiling babushka), and the subtlety, imagination, and wit of the art--the six pairs of animals are a study in black and white (Holsteins, skunks, zebras); tiny creatures (mice, spiders) challenge sharp eyes; the Ark a- building is an airy frame against the sky. The neatly scanning verse has nice touches of humor (``Even the boas felt constricted'') and takes the story on to the rainbow. A delightful presentation of this old favorite. Music included.

Format: Paperback
This book was WONDERFUL!! My 8 year old and I read it together. We LOVED the rhymes!! I am a Noah's Ark collector and my daughter checked it out of the library for that reason. She thoroughly enjoyed it-- especially the illustrations!! (Please let me know if there's any way I could purchase any of the pictures from the book to add to my collection!! They are great!!)
Thanks!!

Format: Paperback
This book is great for people of all ages. The attention to detail and the great craftsmanship in the artwork is awesome. Being a clay artist myself, I can really see that Barbara has some real talent. If you like her style, she has done many other children's books. Especially fun is the "Zoe" series. They are hard to find but a treasure to have and share with your children.

This book has such great rhymes. The first time I heard it was a middle school class, ironically. But I thought it was so clever I has to get it for my nephew who loves words.
