A Book to Share with All Ages  Feb 12, 2010
I used this book in a convocation at an elementary school. There were two groups: grades 1-3; grades 4-6. I got the best reactions from all ages, including the teachers! They laughed and were delighted with the art/pictures. This is one of the most familiar stories from the Bible, but McGuire has a unique perspective, humor and a great way with words that is poetic.

I have now given many copies as gifts. This is a great book for a grandparent to share with a grandchild especially. The pictures are gorgeous. I just enjoy this book so much and hope it becomes a classic because it's the freshest thing to come out in the childrens market for some time.
Unique Twist  Dec 22, 2009
Reviewed by Max Aures (age 3) and Mom for Reader Views (12/09)

"Rainy Day Games: Fun with the Animals of Noah's Ark" begins by saying that a great flood was coming and that God instructed Noah to build an ark that could hold a set of every type of animal and Noah's family. Then the book goes on to speculate what the animals would do having to stay inside for 40 days and nights! A zebra maze? Hide and seek with a chameleon?

Max: "They played some fun games! I don't like having to stay inside when it is raining either. My favorite part was when the beavers were batting the ball to each other with their tails. And I liked when the birds used the elephant as a slide!"

Parent's comments:

"Rainy Day Games: Fun with the Animals of Noah's Ark" by Andy McGuire is a creative book. We have read numerous Noah's Ark books but until now have never read one this unique. Both my son and I enjoyed this new twist on the familiar tale. The illustrations are wonderful and very fun to look at! I think that the book may also provide inspiration to my own children on games to play on rainy days.
fun for the whole family  Jan 13, 2009
This book is beautifully illustrated. The story is delightful & funny for children & adults. This makes a great gift!

Fun!  Oct 6, 2008
"Rainy Day Games" by Andy McGuire proves that children's Christian books can move beyond educational to just be plain ol' fun.

McGuire, who is a fiction editor at a large Christian publishing house, is also a superb illustrator, and this (his first picture book) is a delight for the eyes. McGuire's (mostly) rhyming text is also funny and - in its way - thought-provoking. The first page of the book gives a four sentence summary of the story of Noah and his ark; then the author wonders aloud what it would be like to stay indoors for 40 long days. What, he asked, did all those animals do to pass the time?

Next we meet a young boy, bored on a rainy day. To make the day go faster, he imagines what Noah's animals might have done to amuse themselves on their long journey. He envisions playing hide-and-seek with a chameleon, mice using a zebra's stripes as a maze, a rhino lending his horns for a ring toss (and a not-so-thrilled snake acting as the ring), beavers playing Ping-Pong with their tails, a game of Twister among two giraffes, connect-the-dots with a cheetah's spots, and much more. Then we see the boy trying to imitate one of the games with his dog before settling back with a book until the rain subsides and "God's rainbow paints the sky."

What I Like: There are plenty of funny situations suggested in the book - things that both parents and kids will find amusing. The illustrations are detailed, realistic (or as realistic as an image showing yaks playing jacks can be!), and of high interest to children. As a bonus, the book encourages children to imagine what it might have been like to be stuck on Noah's ark for a long time.

What I Dislike: Although my three year old really likes this book, she's not familiar with many of the games mentioned (including Twister, jacks, Ping-Pong, tic-tac-toe, and tiddlywinks). Therefore, slightly older children will enjoy this book even more. The only trouble is the text is so simple it may be too "young" for some older children.

Overall Rating: Very good.

Wonderful read-aloud story ideal for parents and children to share  Sep 7, 2008
Rainy Day Games: Fun with the Animals of Noah's Ark is a unique children's picturebook loosely based on chapters 5-9 of Genesis. When a flood covered the world, the animals on Noah's ark had to entertain themselves through rainy days - how did they do it? Rhyming words and soft, captivating color illustrations in a realistic style enhance this wonderful read-aloud story ideal for parents and children to share during rainy days. "Pretend that Noah's ark floats by, / And watch the games that they would try. // Hide and seek can be a treat. / Chameleons can be tough to beat. // To tease your brain on stormy days, / You have to try a zebra maze."
