Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In PW's words, "The familiar gathering... before the great flood takes on a gentle and joyous tone as expressed by Cousins's brief and simple sentences and by her naive painted figures." Ages 2-up.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Booklist

Ages 1-3. Cousins uses sparse phrasing to deliver a capsulization of the biblical story of Noah and the flood. Her uncluttered, childlike paintings rendered in bold gouache colors will appeal to young children just being introduced to the tale. While libraries won't want to miss Reid's memorable interpretation, Two by Two , there is room on the shelves for Cousins' simple, direct, and colorful telling. Ellen Mandel --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Board book
While my son (2.5) loves the pictures in this book, the theology drives me crazy. I can handle the "wicked people" mentioned by others although I wonder what my little guy thinks. The thing that drives me nuts is the fact that the redemptive rainbow at the end of the story, which means God will not do this again, is missing! A good book for learning about animals, but not for learning about God.

"Noah's Ark," retold and illustrated by Lucy Cousins, is an admirable addition to the collection of children's books that revisit stories from the Jewish Bible. Cousins retells the story in straightforward, simple language.
What really makes this book stand out is the superb artwork. Cousins' pictures have a charmingly crude feel to them; they crackle with energy and color. The story of Noah, who takes two of every species of animal onto an oceangoing vessel in order to survive a flood, has always been an illustrator's dream, and Cousins revels in the scenario. We see alligators, ladybugs, penguins, mice, elephants, puffins, snakes, ostriches, and many, many more species.
Some may argue that the story itself is not necessarily fit for the youngest children; the notion of a divine being wiping out nearly all of humanity in an intentional global holocaust is, when you think about it, pretty terrifying! But with some guidance from a caring parent or guardian, this version of "Noah's Ark" could be fun for small children. Thanks to Lucy Cousins for a great job.

I highly recommend books by Lucy Cousins - especially this one. The illustrations are bright and vivid and catch a baby/toddler's eye. My son Zachary's room is in the Noah's Ark theme, so I collect all things Noah, but this book has always been a favorite.

How could anyone deny the charms of Lucy Cousins' adaptation of this bible tale? The writing is poetically compressed and the illustrations are riots of folk-art color and movement. My three children have all loved it from a very early age and it is an absolute pleasure to read it to them.

First, if you are neither Jewish nor Christian you may not care for this book. It is a retelling of the story of Noah from the Book of Genesis, told in such a way as to appeal to children.
Having said that, this might well be Ms. Cousins' best work. Her art style is simple but colorful, and if you doubt she truly has an art style consider this: her art is always instantly recognizable. Both myself and my children can spot a Cousins' book from a mile away.
To her credit, Cousins doesn't dwell on some of the more somber aspects of the story, i.e., that all but a few members of mankind are to wiped out by the flood. Rather she focuses on the positive aspects of the story-that God choose to allow some small remnant of mankind and the animal kingdom to continue, with a renewed hope that perhaps man would get it right the second time around.
The art is colorful and my children spend quite a bit of time trying to identify the various animals. We've identified all of them except for a few insects, so if you happen to figure out all of the bugs, let us know.
This book is a great introduction to the Bible for small children. If only everyone trying to introduce children to the Bible could do so as wonderfully as Ms. Cousins.

We have had this book since my son was 6 months old and he really likes all the pictures of the animals-- and I think it is helping him learn to count (even if it is only 1,2). We would recommend this book to anyone who wants their child to know about Noah's Ark.

This cute board book tells the story of Noah's Ark with cute I,lustrations. It was a gift for my godson who loves animals. I was looking for a book he could take to church and quietly enjoy - this was a perfect selection. It was so perfect we purchased one for our son.

I bought this book for my granddaughter to go along with the Fisher Price Noah's ark with animals. She loves the ark and the story explains it in a simple way without a lot of unnecessary religious content. The drawings are simple, clear, and colorful. Color blocks without shading. A very nice, simple book.
