Old MacNoah Had an Ark (Harper Blessings Series)

Overview

Uh-oh!

The rain is falling fast on Noah, and the animals refuse to stay quiet! With an oopsie-daisy! here and a burp! slurp! there, everyone files into Old MacNoah's ark (two by two, of course) to escape the rising waters. The ride may be bumpy, but it's filled with plenty of Ee-i-ee-i-o excitement!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
With a nod to Old McDonald this book fills the Ark with a pair of cows, ducks, pigs, and other animals until they are once again released on dry land. Using the Ee-i-ee-i-o chorus along with other fun sounds, this story can be sung to the old tune. Beside the sounds for farm animals, there is "Bang! Bang!" as Noah builds the ark, "Splish! Splash!" when the rain comes down, and "Burp! Slurp!" while the animals eat. When the ark encounters rough weather, "Oopsie-Daisy!" is the expression. "Ya-Hoo!" is shouted as land is sighted. The two page spread of the "smelly" ark shows the giraffes with clothes pins on their noses and reads, "With a Poo! Poo! here And a Poo! Poo! there," etc., an expression which will make the children giggle. Preschoolers will quickly learn to sing and read the many sounds. Action-filled, colorful pictures of goofy animals add to the fun. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
Kirkus Reviews
The traditional song is combined with the familiar biblical tale to create a sing-along story that will have the Sunday school kids rolling on the floor with laughter. In succeeding spreads, Old MacNoah loads the animal pairs onto his Ark with all the appropriate moos, quacks and oinks, interspersed with ee-i-ee-i-os. But during the flood, the animals have to be fed (with lots of burps and slurps), and then the plot thickens, so to speak. "And on that ark it got quite smelly . . . with a poo! poo! here and a poo! poo! there" is the next spread, graphically illustrated with brown puddles under the animals. After surviving the rough seas, the Ark lands and the animals disembark with a reprise of all the various noises, including the burps and poo-poos, concluding with a stage bow from MacNoah and his cast of animal characters. The illustrations use a dark palette that suits the stormy atmosphere, with flowing type treatments and the animal sounds set in larger, colored type. Sharp-eyed children will notice the absence of Mrs. MacNoah and the female counterpart for MacNoah's canine companion. (Nonfiction/picture book. 2-6)
