Do your children enjoy the Noah’s ark story from the Bible?  This deluxe set, written by Lori C. Froeb and illustrated by Luana Rinaldo, has the storybook and wall clings that your children can put on the wall and create all sorts scenes of the animals and Noah’s ark.

About the Author- Lori C. Froeb lives in New York.  She is a children’s book editor and has written many children’s books.  It was a blessing to her to write this book.

About the Illustrator- Luana Rinaldo has written and illustrated many books for children and babies.  The books have been translated into more than 14 languages.  She lives Zurich, Switzerland.

What B (age 7, second grade) Thought- I like the story about Noah’s ark, but they forgot to put in Noah’s sons and their wives.  There were wall clings, those were really fun.  They were really fun, because we made a neat scene with them.  Noah built a big ark to hold every kind of animal, two of every kind (one female and one male). 

There were good illustrations.  There were snakes, dogs, giraffes, pigs, turtles, monkeys and many more animals that I really enjoy.

I think this book is good for kids my age.

What C (age 5, kindergarten) Thought- I like the book.  I think it was fun to have it read to me.  My favorite part was the rainbow and the animals were safe inside Noah’s ark.  Slowly the water began to evaporate and Noah sent out the dove to find dry land.  And the sun slowly began to come out.  And the rainbow began to come out as a sign that God would never flood the earth again. 

I like the wall clings.  It was fun putting them on the wall, instead of on the window or door. 

I think it would be good for kids my age.

My thoughts-

My kids love Noah and the ark and wall clings, so this book was perfect for them.  I read the book different times to them and B enjoyed reading it to C.  After they put the wall clings on the wall, they looked at the illustrations to see what animals they had put on the wall.

I thought this book was cute and well written.  I really enjoyed studying the illustrations on each page.  The wall clings looked spectacular on our wall.  I did remember to put them on one of the smooth walls in our house, because we stuck wall clings on our bumpy walls once and they did not stick. 

I wondered why Noah’s sons and wives were not included.  When I read the story of Noah’s ark, I like having all the characters and the rest of the complete story.

I highly recommend this story, because all kids should know the story of Noah’s ark and the wall clings make it even more fun.
