Item Description...
"Singer's retelling from the Old Testament gives a new dimension to the story of the Flood.
Children will enjoy hearing the different animals praise their own special qualities so that each
will be assured a place on Noah's Ark. Of course, all are taken on board, but because the dove
is the only one that did not boast, Noah makes the bird his messenger. Commenting that there
are more doves in the world today than there are ferocious beasts, Singers says, "The dove
lives happily without fighting. It is the bird of peace." Eric Carle's brightly colored collages
make this an inviting addition to collections." -School Libaray Journal

"Eric Carle, who has a special way with animals, contributes sumptuous pictures to a book which
is not to be missed." -Publishers Weekly

"This great storyteller has put a new and mildly moral twist on the story of Noah's Ark...and Eric
Carle does not disappoint. His cut-out portraits of the animals are colorful and vigorous, and,
combined with his paintings, varied and provocative. This is good stuff for hungry little eyes."
-The Boston Globe

Reviews - What do our customers think?
why noah chose the dove  Feb 7, 2007
I am collecting all of the Eric Carle books. This is one I did not have. I was excited to find it.
"Why are you silent?" Noah asked the dove.  Mar 12, 2003
When the people of the world sinned, and God chose the only righteous man, Noah, to build an ark, all of the animals gathered around. They, however, believed that Noah would only pick best of all the living creatures. The animals began to boast and argue amongst each other. "I am the largest," said the Elephant. "I am man's best friend," replied the dog. They argued and argued.
Noah noticed one lonely bird sitting in a tree. Noah asked the small, white dove why he did not boast. The Dove replied that he believed that everyone has something special, that another doesn't. Though, all are equally created by God.
Noah took all of the animals on the ark, but when he needed a `messenger' to see if the waters were going down, the one he chose was the dove. The dove is a bird of humility and peace.
I believe that this story is good for those of all ages. It teaches a lesson to all; we are all equally created. People should remain humble.
It is excellently written and has amazing illustrations. I recommend this story to all. It is definitely worth reading.
Delightful story, delightful pictures  May 22, 2002
This is a wonderful book in which a wide array of animals try to show why they should be allowed on the ark: the elephant argues his strength should save him; the fox, his cleverness; the donkey argues that he is more clever; the skunk, his odor ... Finally, Noah tells them he is to save them all. But the dove who did not brag will be his special messenger.

This is a delightful book that reader and listener will both enjoy.
