    " Wonderful picture book for your childs imagination! "

    " Just *love* this book. "

    " Honestly when I saw that this won a Caldecott, I wasn't looking forward to reading it as my Caldecott Challenge religious theme books haven't been that great. This 1978 Caldecott winner was unique and different, which impressed me. Instead of telling the traditional straight-from-the-Bible story, the author translated a Dutch poem from a 17th century Calvinist theologian entitled "The Flood" as the only text for the book and put it right in the front. The rest of the book tells the story through pictures, with some very amusing details like Noah's wife hiding from the mice that come aboard, Noah struggling to get a donkey on-board and the chaotic mess left by the animals after the ark is evacuated. This books makes me want to check out his other books to see if they are as good as this one. Recommended for ages 1-7, 4 stars. "

    " This is a beautiful portrayal of the well known bible story with only one page of text in the beginning. The story is told through the pictures of animals climbing the ark two by two, while all the other animals watch in confusion. The illustrations show the passage of time very well as the ark sets off on a journey in the rain. "

    " I love the artwork! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 1/8/2014

    " Caldecott book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 12/31/2013

    " This book is all about the illustrations! There is nothing to read. We have had so much fun looking at all the pictures. One of my absolute favorites! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Little Miss and the Legomeister | 9/16/2013

    " The kids have spent hours pouring over this very detailed, amusing book wordlessly portraying what it may have been like on Noah's ark. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert | 7/20/2013

    " I really don't care for biblical themed story books. This one is practically wordless, letting the pictures relate the tale, and as such is fairly well done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dixie Diamond | 7/9/2013

    " Kids love trying to find all the different kinds of animals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ryan Dreier | 3/3/2013

    " A "true picture book" Spier uses watercolor and colored pencil to create images that display such movement in this book. Spier employs such lines where the action is focused right where Spier want your eye to land. A wonderful book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 2/16/2013

    " The book starts with the poem "The Flood" by Jacobus Revius (1586-1658) translated from Dutch by Peter Spier. The poem is three columns in length. The rest of the story is told completely in colored illustrations. The size of illustrations varies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 11/30/2012

    " This is almost a wordless book, but the story of Noah's Ark is told with such humor and insight. There is a clever poem at the beginning and then just loads of glorious pictures of the animals and Noah's interactions with them. Very fun to look at... a classic, I believe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Sheppard | 7/24/2012

    " Wow! The way this guy tells the story without any words give much credence to the saying about how much a picture is worth. Definitely getting this for my library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dustin Sealey | 6/13/2012

    " The art work was very detailed. A great way to share the story of Noah's Ark. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cara | 6/3/2012

    " I liked the illustrations in this one. There are only words on the first page, but the story is still good. Sometimes it's hard to figure out a wordless book. That was not the case with this one, especially since a lot of people are already familiar with it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kameron | 3/12/2012

    " Beautiful illustrations...a new family favorite! Jack loves spending lots of time viewing the details of each page. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy | 2/27/2012

    " My favorite Noah's Ark picture book!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 12/5/2011

    " Good picture book - Our 3 1/2 year old will sit with it quietly for 32 minutes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan Simon | 11/2/2011

    " Not very many words, but great pictures! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany | 6/8/2011

    " I love Peter Spier's illustrations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 6/2/2011

    " This is a fantastic book! It has no text; rather the story is told through detailed illustrations. Honestly, no text is necessary, especially if you already know this story by heart. Great for kids of all ages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Smith | 4/21/2011

    " This book captures the scale, wonder, terror, and beauty of Noah's experience. I liked the format of placing the entire poem at the beginning, then allowing the story to proceed in silence, as if the reader is enclosed in the ark. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 2/13/2011

    " Aside from a translated Dutch poem at the beginning, this well-known Bible story is told entirely in pictures. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eileen | 12/29/2010

    " I love this book, my copy is in tatters. The only text is on the front page and the last, all of the rest is pictures. It is great to point out to budding artists the detail. I love the page where the rabbits are leaving the ark! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ali | 12/10/2010

    " I LOVED THIS BOOK! It only has illustrations and no words. It shows the flood and Noah taking care of all the animals, sending the dove out and what not. Absolutely loved the illustrations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adrienne | 12/6/2010

    " Probably inappropiate for teacher instructed lessons in you class. Nevertheless it may be nice to have this book your collection for those students who you know religious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 11/6/2010

    " 1978 Caldecott medal.
    Very intricate drawings. Each scene has so many things to look at. Each time you flip through it you see something new. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 10/19/2010

    " This version of Noah's Ark is retold mostly by picture. A few pages have text that add tho the illustrations "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 6/30/2010

    " wordless book loaded with detail for lots of discussion. Sense of humor in the drawings. Theologically acceptable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 4/6/2010

    " Good picture book - Our 3 1/2 year old will sit with it quietly for 32 minutes! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 4/3/2010

    " Beautiful. Mostly wordless. Funny and sweet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dolly | 2/16/2010

    " This is a wonderfully illustrated book about the story of Noah and the flood. The narrative was brief and simple, and most of the pages have no words. The animals are nicely detailed and we loved the depiction of how crowded and messy it was on the ark. Our girls really liked this book. "
