I’ve always thought that Noah’s Ark books are a great way to introduce small children to the Bible. The amazing story of Noah and God’s promise combined with animals, a big boat, and the rainbow symbol (something they can recognize) is a winning combination.
I just received Noah and the Might Ark by Rhonda Gowler Greene, Illustrated by Margaret L. Spengler, to review. My toddler was so excited as soon as I opened the book. He LOVES animals and loves the Noah’s Ark story very much! I felt that this book was simple enough for smaller children to understand pretty well. The story follows a rhyming pattern that appeals very well to kids. I feel the length of the book was short enough to last within a shorter attention span, yet long enough to tell the story with details that made it feel complete from beginning to end.
The bright and fun illustrations throughout the book, and especially the cover, are great! I LOVE the styling of the animals and the color palette used throughout the book, and so did our son. My only critique would be that on several pages, the illustrations appear sort of blurry. I would like to see the same styling and colors used with less blur. Other than that, this book is great for kids and I recommend it for toddlers through ages 10. I think older kids would enjoy reading the story by themselves.
Note: I received a complimentary copy of this book from BookLookBloggers in exchange for an honest review.
This hardcover book will be released for purchase on April 22, 2014 and is eligible for Amazon Prime.
