Item Description...
Noah's granddaughter helps him bring the animals onto the ark, calm them down, and get them to sleep.

Publishers Description
Jan Brett's intricate illustrations against a beautiful papyrus background make a stunning picture book of a favorite story-this time featuring Noah's granddaughter. As the floodwaters rise, she helps take the animals onto the ark and get them settled down. But it's not easy when giraffes are sleeping next to pandas and lions are curled up with turkeys. Finally the gentle rocking of the ark lulls them all to sleep until the waters recede and Grandpa Noah, his family, and all the animals leave the ark. This simple telling, combined with extraordinary illustrations of every animal imaginable, makes "On Noah's Ark" perfect for young and old.

More About Jan Brett

Jan Brett With over thirty seven million books in print, Jan Brett is one of the nation's foremost author illustrators of children's books. Jan lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts, close to where she grew up. During the summer her family moves to a home in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts.

As a child, Jan Brett decided to be an illustrator and spent many hours reading and drawing. She says, "I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I'm drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real."

As a student at the Boston Museum School, she spent hours in the Museum of Fine Arts. "It was overwhelming to see the room-size landscapes and towering stone sculptures, and then moments later to refocus on delicately embroidered kimonos and ancient porcelain," she says. "I'm delighted and surprised when fragments of these beautiful images come back to me in my painting."

Travel is also a constant inspiration. Together with her husband, Joe Hearne, who is a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Jan visits many different countries where she researches the architecture and costumes that appear in her work. "From cave paintings to Norwegian sleighs, to Japanese gardens, I study the traditions of the many countries I visit and use them as a starting point for my children's books."

Jan Brett currently resides in the state of Massachusetts. Jan Brett was born in 1949.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Yes, she left out God......and added a grandchild  Jul 7, 2007
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Jan Brett and highly respect her work as a children's author & illustrator. But she missed the mark here. I believe that if you are going to retell a Biblical story, you should keep it in line with Scripture.

There is no mention in the Bible that Noah had a grandchild. We are told that Noah, his wife, their three sons, and their wives were the only souls saved from the flood. That's eight. Genesis 7:7 says, "Then Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him entered the ark because of the water of the flood." The New Testament also mentions this fact in 1Peter 3:20 -- "...when the patience of God kept waiting in the days of Noah, during the construction of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through the water."

I'm all for making a story interesting for young people. When animals speak, etc. that's fine with me - I can appreciate imagination and artistic license. But I wouldn't own this book. The story of Noah is dramatic enough without adding people that didn't exist. When Ms. Brett did her version of "The Night Before Christmas" she didn't add Rudolph, nor was it a young girl who witnessed the visit from Santa. She was true to the original, and it was wonderful. I just wish she had done that here.
Get the Imagination Going with Pictures  Apr 16, 2005
Most children have heard the story of Noah's ark, but I think they're rarely encouraged to imagine what the inside of such an ark would be like. This book approaches the story from that angle and really gets a child's imagination going. What would it be like if I were on this ark? What would it look like to have so many different animals all together?

This is a great book for children who love animals. The pictures will have them entranced. I would probably not use this book to tell the story of Noah's ark to a child for the first time. I think the book is mainly geared towards children who already know the story.
Lovely book for church libraries  Nov 17, 2004
This is another lovely book by Jan Brett. The artwork is wonderful and the text is from the viewpoint of Noah's grandson. I bought this for our church library and am glad I did. I also suggest "Naamah: The Story of Noah's Wife" by Sandy Eisenberg Sasso for little girls. It stresses Naamah's job in preserving seeds and plants for use after the flood, and makes the Noah story less of a "men did the whole thing" story. Women were there too and obviously did a lot of work in saving the family and animals, too.
Noah's Ark  Nov 6, 2004
Brett presents this rendition of the story of Noah's Ark from the perspective of Noah's granddaughter. She watches the construction of the ark, and sees all the animals boarding. When the storm ends, Noah releases her pet dove to look for land. The animals leave and look for new homes, and Noah plants a tiny seed. I enjoy all of Jan Brett's books because her watercolor illustrations are so beautiful and detailed. This book is no exception. She treats the viewer to many visual delights. The text is simple and is a good read for little ones.
Oooops! She left out the main character!  Mar 29, 2004
Beautiful illustrations do not make up for the fact that there's not even a nod to the Creator of the story! Come on, "Grandpa Noah says that the rains are coming"!?!?!? Wasn't it God who said the rains are coming? (...)
