A couple weeks ago I got a book from Kregel that I gave to my youngest daughter. At three, I wanted to see what she would do with this storybook about Noah’s Ark. I was drawn to the colorful illustrations, but I wanted to see what she would do with it, especially since she’d just learned the story again in Sunday School.
The story is a well-done rendition of the much-loved story of Noah’s Ark. The reading level is targeted at young elementary age with a story that flows well. I love the illustrations — not quite cartoons, but colorful and simple.
She explored the book for awhile, but what really captured her attention were the wall clings. Before long her seven-year-old brother was helping her create scenes with them. They stuck the stickers, pulled them off, and stuck them again all over the upstairs. The wall clings have done a great job staying on the walls. However, they lose their stickiness quickly when put on other surfaces — just ask me how I know.
This would be a great birthday present for a 1 to 4 year-old or even a fun addition to a baby shower gift — especially if you like to give books like yours truly.
