This is a great book that can enhance a students strength in math without even realizing it. I think that it is a great way to cover two subjects in one, both reading and mathematics.

This book puts the story of Noah and his family into a ryhme.

My baby loves this book! The illustrations are the best and it's one I can read over and over again with her without getting bored.
I'm in awe of anyone who can draw, and even more in awe of people who can take that skill and turn it to intricate techniques like cut paper or, in this case, modelling clay! Noah's Ark is probably my favourite biblical story; I love the animals, the rainbow, the promise of a fresh, new land. This was a lovely rendition of the story; I pored over each picture, enjoying the detail and the subtle humour throughout. Good fun!
