Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.

About "Noah":
A hundred years before the Great Flood, a man named Noah came home talking crazy. God wanted him to build the biggest ship the world had ever seen. The future of humanity depended on it. How would his wife respond? What would the neighbors think? Was it even feasible?

This lavish reimagining of one of the greatest stories of all time will fascinate children and adults alike. Nuanced and playful, yet meticulous in following the biblical narrative, Mark Ludy’s world-class art digs deeper than the Sunday-school tale of cuddly animals, exploring noah’s relationship with his family, the natural world, God - and a formidable engineering challenge.

Immerse yourself in this stunning wordless epic. Whatever your age, you’ll never read this story in the same way again.

Bonus: Find Squeakers the mouse on every page!

About the Author:
Mark Ludy has written or illustrated eight children’s books including The FarmerThe Flower Man, The GrumpWhen I Was  a Boy I DreamedWhen I Was a Girl I Dreamed, and Jujo the Youngest Tribesman. When he’s not immersed in his sketchbooks, you’ll find him in schools promoting art and literacy. He lives in Colorado with his wife, daughter, and two sons.

My Review:
"Noah" is a beautifully illustrated, wordless, children's book.  It's so easy to get caught up in looking at all the detail that was put into every single picture.  Not only that, but the little mouse, Squeakers, is also hiding in the pictures and just begging the kids to find him.  I wasn't sure what to think about a book without words, but I have to say that I really enjoyed it!  Many times I get so involved in reading that we never take time to discuss the story, but when there is no reading to do, it leaves all sorts of opportunities for discussions to take place.

"Noah" is a wonderful book that I'm enjoyed for years to come!

Buy It!: "Noah" is a hardcover, 64 page book for ages 2 and up.  It can be purchased on several websites including amazon.com for $14.36.
