The author's not at the end of this book explains the style of writing used to write this lullaby. The style is inspired by an Arabic form of poetry dating back to at least the seventh century, called ghazal (pronounced like guzzle) It makes for a lovely, rhythmic feel as we read about Noah's wife singing the ark to sleep at night. The illustrations feel like cutouts pasted together to make pictures and are soothing rather than bold in colour. Naamah and the Ark at Night is a perfect bedtime book.Was this review helpful?

A bedtime book
Naamah is Noah's wife. She puts everyone--people and animals-- to bed at night. Little children enjoy the rhyme of this story as well as the pictures. My three grandchildren, ages 8, 6, and 3 had me read it several times during my week's visit. It's a good bedtime book, but children will like it any time. Don't be surprised if the children begin asking questions about the ark and the animals.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
