Mrs. Noah's Vegetable Ark

I have read many children’s stories about Noah’s ark, some from Noah’s point-of-view, but Mrs. Noah’s Vegetable Ark is the first book I’ve read from Mrs. Noah’s point-of-view.

This delightful tale, written by Elena Pasquali, depicts Mrs. Noah as an avid gardener. When she learns her husband is building a giant ark to house the animals during the upcoming flood, she is concerned about what will happen to her garden. She devices clever ways to make her garden mobile, thus saving her plants from the flood and providing food for all on board the ark.
The illustrations by Steve Lavis are bright, colorful and expressive and go perfectly with the text.

What I Like: Everything.

What I Dislike: The only thing I can find that’s missing is a Bible reference for the story.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: 4-8.
