    Matt Mitter in his new book ¿Guess Who Noah¿s Boat¿ published by

    Matt Mitter in his new book “Guess Who Noah’s Boat” published by Kregel Publications and illustrated by Ela Jarzabek gives us an interactive new telling of the Noah’s ark story.




    From the back cover:  Who’s on Noah’s boat?




    Noah is about to start a great adventure–and he’s bringing lots of animals with him.! There are furry creatures and wooly creatures, and some with stripes and some without.




    Kids help Noah figure out which animal is hiding on each page, then lift the flap to see if they are right! Fun riddles give readers all the clues they need to guess who!




    The recommended age range for “Guess Who Noah’s Boat” is 2 – 4 years old, which is a good guideline. It is a very sturdy board book that will stand up to little hands opening and closing the flaps many times! Each page is like a little riddle with fun, rhyming text that gives a clue and then asks “guess who?” The answer is revealed under the cleverly designed flap. This is a fun book that will give lots of entertainment to your young ones and they will enjoy the art work as well. A great gift to give to friends and family.

    This board book for the very young offers what could be first exposure to the story of Noah and the ark.

    Offering four lines of simple text (with the last words on the second and fourth lines rhyming) on each double spread in the 10-page format, author Matt Mitter provides snippets of the voyage on the ark with clues as to which animals are hiding under fold-out portions of the pages. Children can flip them open to reveal the answer after the reading of "Guess who, Noah!"

    Illustrator Ela Jarzabek uses soft colors to depict Noah and his helpers and the animals (all Caucasian in appearance) as the ark is built, sailing and landing. The interactive part of the book will entertain youngsters.

    An advanced reader's copy was provided by the publisher.

    A  fun and engaging book...
    Guess Who Noah's Boat  
    By Matt Mitter   
    Illustrated by Ela Jarzabek  

    Guess Who Noah's Boat is a cute and fun book that will enthrall even the most reluctant young reader starting with the cover.  Little fold-over flaps make for a fun interactive reading experience as you let your little readers guess who or what is hidden from view.

    Enjoy learning about Noah's ark with this delightful and fun book.

    This is a perfect book for children's church, Sunday school, and early literacy programs.  Looking for a gift for Christmas or a birthday?  This would be a well-loved and cherished gift around which memories would be created.

    I was provided a copy of this book through Kregel's blogger program in exchange for my honest review and tour participation.

    Guess Who: Noah's Boat is a sturdy, bright lift-the-flap board b

    Guess Who: Noah's Boat is a sturdy, bright lift-the-flap board book about Noah.  Each two page spread tells a portion of Noah's story and ends with the question, "Guess who, Noah?"  When the flap is lifted a different pair of animals is revealed.  The facial expressions on Noah's family and the animals clearly show that they feel safe and secure as the ark is being built and the skies are darkening.  The last page shows the animals leaving the ark after the flood recedes and when the final flap is lifted, Noah is shown as the last one on board, ready to walk off.




    This is one of the most successful Christian board books I've seen.  Ela Jarzabek has created a delightful menagerie to fill the ark. Matt Mitter uses rhyme to not only tell Noah's story but to also give clues about who is under each flap.  This book would be a great addition to the preschool library at church or a sweet baby shower gift,  Often it seems that the subject of Christian board books is beyond the understanding of the children who like the chunky, lift a page format.  I don't think there is that disconnect here.  The pages are a little thinner than many board books, making it attractive to toddlers.  Yet the flaps are sturdy enough to be lifted over and over without ripping hazards.  The story is simple enough for littlest ears. but also detailed enough for the slightly older child and is sure to be a favorite for many readings.    I received a copy of Guess Who: Noah's Boat from Kregel Publication for review purposes.

    I received of GUESS WHO NOAH¿S BOAT from Kregel. It is written

    I received of GUESS WHO NOAH’S BOAT from Kregel. It is written by Matt Mitter and illustrated by Ela Jarzabek. It is, in one word, adorable. The pictures are bright and the characters, always smiling and colorful, remind me of stuffed animals. The book itself is hard and cardboard-like, so it is perfect for young hands. The spreads include flip-up areas that reveal more exciting pictures. The theme of the book involves “guessing” who is hiding behind bushes, crates, and so on.

    I loved how easy the flip sections were to find. I recall books from my childhood when I had to struggle to locate what flipped, and even then I missed some. Yes, it was thrilling to discover them later, but it felt refreshing to find them the first time through.

    I can see adults buying toys to match the animals in the story. The pages contain poem verse, so as children grow older, they can recite back the poems.

    The message of the book, Noah’s Ark, is strong. This is an excellent way to introduce young minds to the Bible. I highly recommend this. I will be passing it on to a friend for her infant. This is definitely a winner.

    From the very front cover with the lion¿s head and paws covering

    From the very front cover with the lion’s head and paws covering it, my little one couldn’t wait touch. What a tempting book for any toddler, with bright colors, to draw their eyes.
    As I started reading this sweet little book to my son, he loved getting to each page with the pull-tabs. We talked about each of the animals that were pictured and how Noah had built his ark. He couldn’t wait to read and see who was under the Guess who Noah!
    I would recommend this to any toddler, what a great way to teach about a part of our faith. Mine loved this book.

    I received this book through Kregel Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review.

    Guess Who? Noah's Boat is a bright and bouncy book that combines rhymes *and* lift-the-flaps. 




    Each four-line rhyme gives a clue about the animal behind the flap. There are zebras, bears, sheep, and tigers. The illustrations have enough extra creatures (frogs and monkeys and rabbits) frolicking and dancing and hopping that kids can play I Spy with them, too. 




    There are a total of five flaps inside the book, and the one on the cover. 
    Something I especially like is that the flaps just lift, you don't have to pick at the corners to get them to lift up.




    This is a neat little Noah's Ark book for small readers. :-)




    Thank you Kregel for my review copy!

    We're hearing and seeing a lot in books and movies about Noah and the Flood these days. It is an old, old Bible story that really took place and was God's judgment on a corrupt world. In Guess Who Noah's Boat the telling of Noah's story is sweetly told in rhyme and with wonderful illustrations so sweet and bright. They will surely capture the attention of young children.

    This is a "lift-the-flap" book and is very well designed with easy to find and lift flaps that expose more of the picture that completes the rhyme on the page when the text reads, "Guess who, Noah!".

    Creatures marched on two-by-two
     while skies were clear and sunny.
     This pair of furry forest beasts
     came hoping for some honey!

    I see this as a really fun book for little ones. It is durable and sized just right for the kiddies. I have found that Kregel produces quality, dependable children's books including Guess Who, Noah!

    The recommended age range for this book is 2 - 4 years old, which is a good guideline. It is a very sturdy board book that will stand up to little hands opening and closing the flaps many times!

    There are many things to love about this book. The illustrations are colorful and the text is written with nice rhymes that appeal to children. Open the flap books are great to hold the attention of younger listeners. I think this book would be primarily a read-aloud for this age range. Although some children as young as 3 or 4 are beginning to read, some of the words and blends in this book will probably be problematic.

    I only have a couple negative comments. First of all, I would have liked to have seen more of the story of Noah included. The only mention of God was on the very last page, where creatures were referred to as God's creatures. I felt like it was a missed opportunity to educate children about God. Second of all, it would have been nice if the flaps were in a different location on each page so that children could have searched more for where the flap was. My children loved lift the flap books, especially when they had to find them and if there were several on one page to find.

    Overall this is a great book for young children. If you are looking for a sturdy, visually appealing book for little ones to look through and listen while you read aloud, this one will not disappoint. Just be aware that they will not learn much more about Noah other than the fact he had a boat with animals on it.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
