Noah Ark

Now for only 1 cent used on Amazon you can pick up Peter Spier’s Caldecott Medal winning book Noah’s Ark. Your family will thank you.

What a wonderful rendition of the Noah’s Ark Story. With very few words you get the feeling of what it would be like to be on that ark. It is rich in details but also has a panoramic feeling. Spier’s Noah is full of emotion. He’s tugging on a donkey to bring him into the ark and upset that the mice are chasing the pigs. He’s got the insects organized in jars and he’s busy collecting the chicken’s eggs each morning.

Spiers even illustrates what is going on with the fish under the ark as they swim through the storm.

With pen and ink renderings and watercolor washes the beautiful story is told. Your family will not want to miss seeing this book.

We love the final scenes with the after flood images of the ark. What a mess.

Thank you Peter Spiers for illustrating the Noah’s Ark story!
