Review by Heather McD

This book is a sweet, rhyming retelling of the ever-popular Noah's Ark story. It doesn't vary much from the actual Biblical account, aside from leaving out the less entertaining bits like the dimensions of the ark itself. Each phrase is written in a rhyme, making it a little more fun to read and more fun for kids to hear. I'd say it's appropriate for kids of all ages, but with the paper pages, it's best to keep out of the hands of kids who are still rough with books, like my 19 month old.

The illustrations are ... odd. Let me explain. They are huge, full-page illustrations that are vibrant and cartoon-ish. They seem like they should be fantastic. However, they're fuzzy. Blurry. Ever-so-slightly out of focus. It seems to be on purpose and not a printing error, as the text printed on each page is crisp and clear. Looking at this illustrations for too long actually almost gives me a headache, as I feel like my contact prescription needs to be adjusted!

I don't understand why they would do this to such vibrant, entertaining pictures. Maybe they think that kids enjoy a softened look? Maybe they think it looks more like stuffed animals? I have no clue. But I really can't read this one too often because of it. My daughter doesn't seem to mind, though. I have neutral feelings about this book, overall. It's really cute and I like the rhyming aspect of the story and the big, bright colors of the pictures. Maybe it'll grow on me after a while. (Posted on 8/29/2014)

I think this is a great story that every child should know about. This version is written for young children. My son understood and followed it and he's not even 2 years old. It has enough story to entertain older children too.

Noah and the Mighty Ark is the same author and illustrator team as One Last Sheep that I reviewed the other day so I anticipated it being pretty similar.

When I showed it to Paige, she recognized it as being just like the other book. I'm sure that's a good thing if you're an illustrator of children's books and your work is easily recognizable!

This book was written in classic rhyming format which Paige always LOVES. When she has me read it to her over and over again, it's easier for her to remember what's coming and she can start reciting it with me. It didn't take long for that to happen with this one because she loves the story of Noah's Ark and this is truly a special book.

I can't rave enough about the illustrations by Margaret Spengler. They are just colorful and so relatable to little ones. They're relatable to me too because they make the animals seem so cute and cuddly. I think it's easier for little kids to process big Bible stories like Noah's Ark if they can visualize them as friendly cartoon characters that they are used to.

This story of Noah and the Mighty Ark is true to the Bible story and doesn't take any liberties. It's straightforward and easy for the little ones to comprehend. (Posted on 4/19/2014)

CUTE! CUTE! CUTE! Did I mention this book is cute? Now most people know about the story of Noah and his Ark, but this way is just so much better in my opinion. I was sent a copy of this book to review and boy, and I thankful. My children LOVED this book. It is now one that they have read over a couple times. And the funny part is the book just arrived in the mail today! This tells me this is a keeper for sure.

I for sure give this book a 5 out of 5 stars. Not only did it keep my kids attention, but the pictures are cute. There shows 2 other books and I am going to now have to hunt them down and add them to our book collection.

Another great thing about this book is that my oldest wanted to take it with him to school to share. I had to explain to him that I would have to get permission before we could share this book, but if his teacher didn’t mind, I would bring it in.

So in conclusion, this is a must have if you have younger children. It’s a cute story about Noah and his amazing ark that help animals by two’s. I can’t wait to share this with my friends and their kids. (Posted on 4/14/2014)
