Summary: Noah's Ark is a picture book that has wonderful pictures that tell the story without words. It shows animals of all shapes and sizes going together to the ark. It shows the rain pouring down and flooding the land and that anyone or thing that did not get in the ark did not make it though the flooding. It shows the land return and they make their piece with God and get to start life all over.

Personal Reaction: My reaction to this book was that I loved it. I do not really like picture books being that there are no words at all but this one I enjoyed because it has a amazing meaning behind it and for a child it tells the story wonderfully where they can understand it on their own what happens.

Classroom extensions: One extension you can do with this book is to ask the students what they got out of the book or what they thought it meant and have them share with the class. Another extension you could do would be to have a sheet for them with all the different animals on it and have them color the animals and then label what animal it is. ( )

This is a wordless picture book. The illustrations are incredibly detailed and most importantly, accurate. I highly recommend this book as one to use for introducing a child to a book and its orientation. ( )

are delightful, and that it's easy to skip the words because they're confined to early pages. Otoh, the list of animals, and the rhyme of the verse, could help w/ preliteracy skills.
I did not spend the time to examine every detail, but Noah's patience, fatigue, and sense of humor all came through. If a parent likes to teach bible stories in a friendly manner, this would certainly be effective.?á" ( )

Noah's Ark tells the story of how Noah brought all animals 2 by 2 to the Ark along with his immediate family while all others laughed at him. Noah endured the laughing and the self doubt all so that he may follow the LORDS will and so that life may begin again on earth. The story is derived from the poem, "The Flood" written by Jacob Revius. The story explains how all were killed because of the guilt and meanness of man kind because they did not listen to GOD'S will.

My thoughts are simply, be kind. If we as human beings will simply be kind to one another, reguard less if your very religious or not, it will please the LORD. Life is to precious and can be taken away at a moments notice.

My extention idea would be to let the children built their own Noah's Ark:

My supplies would be:
Small Show box
Small stuffed animals
Fabric Triangles
Towel Roll

After reading the story Noah's Ark, would would take our show boxes and color them, then we would take the fabric triangles and tape them onto the towel roll, and then we would tape the towel roll to the bottom of the show box. After putting the Ark together we would talk about the different kinds of animals that Noah had on the Ark and what kind of animals each child has and what other kinds of animals they might have or see on an Ark.

This book is a picture book that explains the biblical story of Noah's Ark. The book shows a pair of every animal on the earth boarding a Giant ship or "Ark" that was built by Noah so that all species can be protected by the flood that was about to come.

Book description
"Noah's Ark" is a religious and faith based story that will help children gain a better understanding on God and His great phenomenons. God informs the diligent man, Noah, about a severe flood that will wash out all the animals and all the lands. He tells Noah to build a great ark and save every type of animal found in the world, yet only one female and one male from each--no more. When Moses tries to inform his town about the terrible storm that is about to commence, they refuse to believe him. Does Moses build a ark big and strong enough to protect not only him, but the animals as well? Read and find out!
