Jerry Pinkney took me on the biblical journey Noah took as directed by God. Noah trusted God and built an ark to aboard and escape from the great flood that was to come. Noah's family and many animals climbed in the ark when it was complete even though most people did not believe what Noah said. As Noah and everyone waited on the ark, I felt joy when the dove returned with an olive branch. After the long wait for the flood to go down and dry land to appear, the branch represented the trust and hope that Noah had in God. Also, it represented future prosperity. The illustrations were uniquely detailed. ( )

Noah's Ark is a biblical story that shares why God flood the earth. I think it is a beautiful story that emphasizes the importance of the earth and its people. It also clarifies that God keeps His promises. I think young readers will be influenced to take better care of the earth and all of its creatures. ( )

The illustrations in this book were beautiful. They were full of so many different colors that each page felt like it should be framed. I don't know the name of the form of illustration for this book, but it was extremely detailed, but it seemed there was some form of haze over everything which blurred the colors beautifully. I've always loved the story of Noah's Ark in the bible. Firstly, I was named after the guy, but I also loved the idea behind the story and what it was meant to teach. The text and illustrations set up the scene of how wicked the people were with their pointing fingers and judgemental faces and comments. The part of the story that was my favorite was the idea of salvation inside the Ark, a term that has been used throughout literature and movies as a symbol of hope. Or faces melting, like in Indiana Jones, but for the most part the symbolism of the word "Ark" represents the idea that we will survive and that we will make it thorugh whatever hard times come up.

This book retells the biblical story of the great flood and how Noah and his family faithfully responded to God's call to save life on earth. The pictures in this book would really keep the younger students interested. The pictures are beautiful, and it has a whimsical but realistic feel to it just like many other of Pinkney’s works it has such good details to it. ( )
