Noah and the Mighty Ark is a children’s book that can be suitable for the youngest of ages, provided the story is read to them, all the way up to children of 8 years of age. The story has been taken from a well known Bible event from the time of Noah. It has been written in a way which young readers can understand the overall message of it. It tells how Noah was chosen by God to build an ark, collect animals, and for his family to be the ones that re-populate the earth.
From the cover of the book, throughout all the pages within it, and to the very end the illustrations are presented with a soft edge and lots of color depicting each part of the story. The illustrations provide a nice complimentary view to the story’s dialogue and narration. The author has done a remarkable job of bringing a Bible event to life for the young readers of our world.
I highly recommend this book as a conversation starter for children ages 4-8. There is not great detail on the scriptural reasons behind the ark, the flood, why Noah was chosen, and how sets of different species was chosen.
