Overview

Children are often afraid to try something new. This story will show them how they can trust God to help them do what they need to do—just like He did Noah.


How Noah Knew What to Do shows how, even though Noah wasn’t a veterinarian or even a ship builder, he listened to God and trusted Him to help him build the ark and fill it with animals. Karen Ann Moore's delightful rhyming text along with Pete Kersten’s whimsical illustrations make this a fun way for children to learn they can rely on God in every situation, even when they’re doing something they’ve never done before. Kids will see that obeying God can mean saying “yes” even when the obstacles seem hard to overcome. A gel-pack water-waves novelty that’s built into the front cover makes for lots of giggles.

Rhyming text recounts the Old Testament story of how Noah saved his family, along with two of every living creature, when God destroyed the world with a great flood.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
God gave Noah a very big and important series of tasks -- build an ark, gather animals, sail through a storm, and find a safe place to land. Noah was quite worried. He was not a shipbuilder, a veterinarian, or a sea captain! But Noah was a man who trusted God. Young readers will discover that God will up any of us when we depend on Him to carry out what he wants us to do. Highly recommended reading by children ages 4 to 7, How Noah Knew What To Do features lively rhymes by Karen Ann More for reading aloud, and is wonderfully illustrated by the collaborated talents of Rick and Pete Kersten.

Read an Excerpt



Chapter One


If Noah wasn't a shipbuilder,
how could he build an ark?


A man named Noah had a wife
And lived a very godly life,
And so God thought old Noah could
Do anything God thought was good.

He called on Noah one fine day,
And this is what God had to say ...

"Noah, things are not too pleasing,
Everything on earth is wheezing,
Getting sicker every day,
Taking all the joy away.

So I've decided what to do,
And here's My plan—it's up to you ...

"I'm going to take away the sun

And make it rain on everyone.

It's going to rain, it's going to pour

For forty days and then, no more ...

"I'd like for you to build an ark—
A floating family zoo,
And take the animals I've made
In groups of two by two.

"Take the little crawling ones,
The flying ones, the walkers,
Take the mooing, crowing ones,
The groaners and the talkers ...

"Keep them in a safe, dry place
Until the storms all pass,
And then I'll call and let you know
Just where to find dry grass."
