Chapter One

Noah opened the window and sent out a raven to find dry land. The raven flew around and came back to the ark because it didn't find any. Then Noah sent out a dove. The dove came back, too. Noah waited seven days, and then he sent out another dove. The dove returned with an olive leaf in its beak!

"The land is almost dry!" Noah said.

God said, "You all may leave the ark now."

Noah and his family left the ark. Right away Noah built an altar so he could thank God and praise him. "Thank you, God, for saving us."

God was pleased with Noah and all he had done. "Never again will I destroy people and animals with a flood," he said. "As a sign of my promise, I will give you a rainbow. Go and enjoy this new world."

God's Blessing

God saved Noah and the animals from the flood

Faith to Grow

Noah never questioned God. He obeyed God. Noah trusted God to take care of him. God provided a second chance for people and for the animals, too.

Prayer

Thank you for showing your mercy on Noah and the animals, Lord, and to us still today. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Meet the Author

La primera obra publicada por Laurie fue una nota que le paso a un nino de la escuela primaria. Cualquiera habria pensado que aquel momento tan embarazoso detendria alli mismo su carrera como escritora. Sin embargo, en lugar de suceder esto, Laurie ha escrito treinta y cinco libros y ha sido autora/ilustradora de dos mas. Laurie vive en la zona rural de Ohio con su esposo y sus dos hijas, y le encanta escribir rodeada de caballos, ganado, perros, gatos y cinco pavos.

Doris Ettlinger uses a traditional, realistic art style with a warm color palette. She has illustrated some of the Little House on the Prairie books for Harper Collins Publishers.

This is my son's first bible story book - I read one to him each night at bedtime. I originally borrowed it from our library, but it's so good, I'm getting a copy of our own. Each story is no more than 2 pages in length with beautiful illustrations -- no "comic" renditions of anyone. Each story is followed-up with a short recap of its main points and a related prayer. My son is just now being introduced to Catholicism. He loves the stories and enjoys talking about them throughout the week.

My wife and I find this book an excellent introduction to the Bible. The artwork is excellent throughout the book and the print is easly readible. The reading level is about 1-2 grade level. However, I don't recomend it to kids under 7 as the ten plagues of Egypt could give kids nightmares.
