Sunday, April 26
It rained and rained and rained today.
Then the sun came out.
We didn't see a rainbow, probably because we were busy inside - celebrating with my niece. Today was her baptism day.
In her honor - a couple Noah's Ark books for you to discover...
Noah's Ark - by Peter Spier - as usual for him there are VERY detailed illustrations. It is a little bit more harsh (?) about the story, but it really draws you in. Yeah - it's a Caldecott Award winner too!
Noah's Ark - by Jerry Pinkney - gorgoeus sweeping illustrations with a yellow tone to them, capturing the majesty of God's creation. Yeah - it's a Caldecott Honor Award winner too.
In the Shadow of the Ark - by Anne Provoost - this one is for grown-ups. Just another way to look at the story. I found it absolutely fascinating.
On Noah's Ark - by Jan Brett - she is one of the best at telling a story within a story. Her framed illustrations add a whole extra dimension to the story.
Noah's Wife - by Sandy Eisenberg Sasso - have you ever wondered how the plants made it through the flood? Well, Noah's wife gathered them all, of course! It adds a nice twist to the traditional telling, and answers some of my questions!
We're All in the Same Boat - by Zachary R. Shapiro - Noah encourages all the animals to get along. It's alphabetical and adorable!
Hope you have a sunny week!
