Noah and his sons faithfully build the Ark in a society that is filled with violence and corruption and that has many similarities with our own. The story follows Noah's family as they build the Ark, his sons find wives, Noah tells the people about the coming judgment, and they all face danger and scorn from those around them. By the time the animals come, Noah's family has angered many people and a mob heads out to burn the Ark with Noah's family in it!
The story portrays what life might have been like before the Flood, what the Ark might have been like (including how the animals would have been feed and cared for), and shows what life might have been like right after the Flood.
At the back of the book, the author answers 47 questions about the Flood and the Ark, ranging from questions about the geologic column and fossils to how the animals all fit on the Ark.
"In The Days of Noah" is an exciting tale for ages 8-12 based on the Bible's account of Noah and the Flood. The story stayed true to what is given in the Bible, but the author also filled out the story with details. Each page had a realistic-style, full-color illustration of the events happening in the text. However, it's not a picture book--there's a lot of text on each page.
The story flowed smoothly. The author wove in the details about what life might have been like before the Flood, how the sons found their wives, how Noah's family was able to care for the animals on the Ark, and such, without slowing the pacing or forcing the action to illustrate some point.
I gave this book to my teen reviewer when she was 10 years old. Several months ago (when she was still 12 years old), we pulled it out to read and she lit up with excitement.Read more ›
It's been three years since I've purchased this book and I've realized something. That the book itself is somewhat of a mixed bag. While I praise the illustrations and the storyline, what I didn't like now is it's too kid-friendly and the appearance of dinosaurs (called dragons in the story) in the Ark itself. I only read the first half of the book (the story) but I'll never read the second half which consisted of "information" about Noah's flood, his descendents, etc. It even made a reference to the infamous Zuiyo-maru carcass (which was really a basking shark), a thing that even other creationists such Ken Ham admitted it wasn't a "plesiosaur". This is one of many children's books that Creationists are trying to make money on.
There is a wonderful questions and answers section found here too that covers all sorts of subject matter. From questions about history or whether or not it is even possible that the whole world flooded; these are all discussed here. Science topics abound from fossil formation to animal migration. It even discusses the flood legends from other lands and what that means for Christians. There is only one portion of this book that is unfortunate. It includes a photo of something that was thought to be the remains of a dinosaur that was later proved to be a decomposing shark. My version is copyright 1996 and is the second printing from the publisher done in 1999. A newer version may no longer have this section. This is a very tiny part of what is otherwise a really fascinating book with a great deal to find within the covers!
I recommend it.
I am open to a variety of explanations for how the earth came to be the way it is and plan to explain the options to my kids and this book is a great tool for learning.
