    Noah's Ark. We've all heard about it. We've all seen the famous

    Noah's Ark. We've all heard about it. We've all seen the famous tub boat illustration with giraffes sticking their necks out of an insanely too small boat. The famous icon is often used on baby blankets and curtains and other decor. That's not what really happened though, and The True Story of Noah's Ark is Tom Dooley's answer to a common misnomer. 




    Top things I appreciated in this book? 




    Fantastic illustrations---Bill Looney also illustrated Ken Ham's The True Story of Adam and Eve and in this book on Noah's ark he again uses his artistic skill to help you grasp the largeness of the event. I've seen no other illustrations that so accurately portray the realness of the catastrophe. Bill Looney is a fantastic artist and it shows on every page of this book. 




    Fold out panorama--I loved this feature as it allows for three full pages of the "insiders view" of Noah's ark. An enormous amount of detail was included. Absolutely stunning. 




    Easily read to children---Some books are written well, but they just don't "read" well to kids. This one is just the opposite. There are some great details included, and it's long enough where you'll need to take several sittings, but it's a book that could still fit into the bedtime story category. 




    There was one thing that I wished had been done differently. On page 47 the author comments that we know little from the Bible on what life was like aboard the ark, so can only speculate. It's a great thing that he gave that caveat, but from there on out he proceeds with a speculation that is written as though it were fact, going in detail on what Noah maybe did and thought. He tends to drift from speculation to fact, and a different type of wordage would have better conveyed that the author was only speculating, which is important. If your reading this book to your child, the issue could easily be addressed. If it's an older child reading, a comment or two would easily right it. 




    Even with the above caution, I still enjoyed the book immensely. I appreciated the fact that the author does pay close attention to to the Biblical account for actual details and the timeline, which is vital. Beautifully written and illustrated, it's sure to become popular in your household. *Thanks to Master Books, a division of New Leaf Publishing Group for providing a free copy to me in exchange for my honest review.

    Insightful text! Stunning artwork!

    This book is a wonderful addition to the many accounts of Noah's Ark in the children's section of any library! Whether you believe the story to be true or not, this telling makes it vitally interesting and gives the reader an intense what-if-you-were-there feeling. If the idea of exposing your children to anything other than orthodox Darwinism terrifies you, avoid this book. Otherwise, get it and enjoy!

    World Wide Flood My Behind

    Anyone who still accepts the archaic idea of a global flooding event needs to get their head out of their anus and wake up. There was never a world wide flood, no evidence for such an event and loads of evidence that falsify such an event. FACT!
