Title: Ready, Set, Find Noah’s Ark
“Ready, Set, Find as you read the story of Noah’s Ark in this interactive board book for young readers,” the back jacket states in Zonderkidz children’s book, Ready, Set, Find Noah’s Ark.
~ What ~
This numbered twelve-page board book with rounded corners and five page-tabs targets children ages four to eight years old who enjoy the Biblical story of Noah and the ark. With the left side of the pages being pale colored backgrounds with a sentence or two about the story, underneath are eight colorful objects with their names listed. The opposite pages are detailed and colorful illustrations that match the story and contain each of the objects to find.
The simple story includes God having Noah build an ark to protect his family and him when a flood covered the earth because all the people were evil. God sends two of each animals into the ark and closes the door behind them. After the rains and water cease, the ark rests safely on land, and God puts a rainbow in the sky to remind us He will never flood the earth again.
~ Why ~
Having several grandchildren who live out of state, I cannot wait to share this cute and fun book with them because they love to match up duplicate pictures. I like how the illustrations are colorful while being easy to identify with some of the same items included again on other pages. It reinforces the iconic story while searching for objects in the artwork.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not believe in Christ or have a personal relationship with Him will probably avoid this book that discusses God punishing the people of the earth by flooding it. Young children may get upset that all but a few people died, yet this may be an opportunity to discuss why it happened. Some beginner readers may have trouble reading the book by themselves.
~ Wish ~
It would help if some of the complicated wording were easier to understand for beginner readers. I wish all pronouns of God were capitalized for reverence.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for an engaging children’s book that is interactive with objects to find in the illustrations, this makes an excellent choice about Noah and the ark.
