Reviews - What do customers think about A is Ark: Noah's Journey?
Adorable Mice and Jackrabbits Jul 1, 2005
Michael Glenn Monroe has created a whimsical environment where the animals from Noah's Ark have wonderful personalities. Noah also has a beautiful spirit and can be found counting insects as the two adorable Jackrabbits "with big friendly eyes" look curiously at the butterflies.
I love the picture of Noah wrapped in a quilt and walking around in the rain with an umbrella. U is for umbrella and Q for quilt.
The interior of the ship is also shown. We find "T is for Turtles, safe in their shells" and "M is for mice." Noah is feeing them a bit of cheese.
The last few pages show all the animals leaving and walking to a new home. There is a pastel rainbow and children will feel the excitement of the animals starting a new life as the Ark sits on dry land.
The humorous rhyming text by Michael and Colleen helps children learn the alphabet and could also help them learn to write poetry. This is the most fun I've seen a writer and an artist have with the Noah's Ark story. Michael Glenn Monroe is an award-winning wildlife artist and Colleen credits her children for being the inspiration for her books.

Writers Notes 2005 Book Award Winner Apr 28, 2005
We could not resist this latest approach to the alphabet wrapped around the timeless story of Noah's Ark. The actual tale bookends this brightly illustrated version, while the run of the alphabet is dominated by--what else--the loading of animals two by two. Rhyming text adds to its appeal. It turns out that Noah reaches dry land again, and the world is safe to begin anew. Amen.
Absolutely Delightful!!!! Apr 10, 2005
A is for Ark is a wonderful supplement to the story of Noah. The author lovingly takes the reader by the hand and guides them through the alphabet using entertaining rhymes that will delight any child. Along with the fun-loving narrative the pictures bring a sense of tenderness with the warm, rich colors. All four of my children absolutely love this book and I have given several copies as gifts at baby showers and birthdays. Once again the Monroe team creates another great book!!!
A truly fun way to introduce young ones to the alphabet Nov 5, 2004
A is for Ark: Noah's Journey is an alphabet book that combines the basic letters with the Biblical tale of Noah's voyage to save all the animal species on Earth from a great flood. Whimsical color illustrations of the many birds and beasts as well as Noah himself add a charming touch to this simple story, told with humor and grace. A truly fun way to introduce young ones to the alphabet.
