Title: Noah and the Noisy Ark
Illustrator: Denis Alonso
“Noah opened the door. Everyone praised God. God had saved them!” the story states in Zondervan’s children’s book, Noah and the Noisy Ark.
~ What ~
Part of The Beginner’s Bible series, this eighteen-page board book with a cut-out handle at the top targets young children from four to eight years old. The book covers the story of Noah and the ark from the Holy Bible. It would best be read out loud to non-readers or beginner readers who like to look at pictures due to their limited reading comprehension level.
The book tells the accurate story of God telling Noah to build an ark. All animals and relatives are on board the large boat, and Noah is thankful to the Creator for saving them. Having colorful, easy-to-decipher illustrations, the cartoon designs with big white eyes animals and people are on almost every page.
~ Why ~
This is a helpful book for beginner readers since there are only a few sentences on each page. There are plenty of objects to look at by a young child. I like how there is room for discussion about building an ark and living onboard that older ones may enjoy. Several of the animal depictions are adorable.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not want to promote teaching a child about the iconic Old Testament flood will pass on this book. It may be too advanced for beginner readers due to the two and three syllable words. It may be sophomoric for the targeted third-grade reading level.
~ Who ~
No information is provided on the illustrator.
~ Wish ~
I wish all pronouns of God were capitalized for reverence.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for a Bible story book about Noah and the ark for those starting to read, this will delight many young children.
