This is a great book for children who love animals. The pictures will have them entranced. I would probably not use this book to tell the story of Noah's ark to a child for the first time. I think the book is mainly geared towards children who already know the story.
The Jesse Tree is a Christmas tradition in our home and Noah's Ark is one of the first stories told during Advent. This book will make a lovely addition to our devotion. The pictures are beautiful ~ as is the case with most of Jan Brett's books.
In this unique version of the Biblical story of Noah's Ark, his granddaughter is the narrator and tells of this wonderful adventure and all of the creatures on board Grandpa Noah's ark. After 40 days and 40 nights the rain stops and the granddaughter sends out her dove who, as expected, returns with a green leaf revealing that the waters have been subdued. In the end, Grandpa Noah plants a seed and all begin to settle in their new land and life...with the final picture depicting the granddaughter with her dove, Grandpa Noah off to work farming the land and a beautiful rainbow in the background as a symbol of God's covenant.
