I was very excited and very intrigued at how the book “Noah” the 64-page picture book by Mark Ludy would be like with no words.
My 5 year old and I sat down one night before bed to “read” this book. We looked at each page, discussed what we thought was going on and what would happen next. It was so much fun reading this with her. Her imagination took off. We’d stick the the Biblical Noah story and then add what we though the pictures were showing us. After we were done reading it she asked if she could look at it in bed.
The illustrations are beautiful. So beautiful I’d love to have a few of them framed and hung in our Noah’s room. There were a few pages that scared my 5 year old at first. One where Noah is speaking to God, his eyes are really wide and my daughter said the eyes looked scary, but once I told her that Noah was shocked and saddened at what God told him, that He was going to flood the whole earth. The other page was then the flood came, there were people in the water and that scared her. I explained to her that is what really happened when they Nah flood came, that people died, but that God sent a rainbow to the world as a promise to never flood the whole earth again. As a bonus there is a mouse named Squeakers on every page, we had fun trying to find him.
I loved this book and would recommend this book for families with young children. It allows you to tell the Noah story in your own word through the pictures.
