The rain is falling fast on Noah, and the animals refuse to stay quiet! With an oopsie-daisy! here and a burp! slurp! there, everyone files into Old MacNoah's ark (two by two, of course) to escape the rising waters. The ride may be bumpy, but it's filled with plenty of Ee-i-ee-i-o excitement!

At first it looked like this was just going to be a so-so remake of Old MacDonald in a different venue. But after a couple of animal sounds there were some variations that made this an enjoyable picture book.

Too cute for words!

Fun Noah's Ark book based on the song Old MacDonald. There are the usual animals and the rain but there are also very funny unexpected verses: "on the ark they had some lunch... with a burp slurp," "on that ark it got quite smelly...with a poo poo," and "on that ark it got quite rough...with an oopsie-daisy!"

The illustrations are great. Kids will crack up!
This would be great fun to share and sing with children. The noises everything makes are often funny, and the colorful illustrations are lively and silly. One question: Does the religious nature of the setting allow this book to be used with everyone in a public setting?
Okay, the kids LOVED this one. I have to warn you that there is a verse about a POOH POOH here and a POOH POOH there. I know, not the most reverant way to sing a scripture story, but I have to admit it was fun :).

My confirmation teacher loves little kids books that she can read to her children's, and our confirmation class. She seems to like this one an awful lot considering i have heard it 3 times so far...
A cute book that talks about Noah and how he saved the animals without being overly religious to any one faith over another. My kids love this story.
Story of Noah and the Ark written to the tune of Old MacDonald. While the poo-poo part may not be necessary, all of the animal sounds make it lots of fun.
Great illustrations and lots of funny words like "burp" and "poo"! A much more realistic version of both Old MacDonald and Noah and the Ark.

A different version on Old MacDonald had a farm, but this time, Noah has an ark. The book uses the regular farm animals. Cute book.
Nice pictures, kids will really like it
