Enchanging Feb 6, 2007
I bought this book to add to my collection of pop-ups but I also thought it would be a splendid show and tell for children in church school and my grandchildren. The book captivates them and they can't wait for me to turn to the next page. It brings to life Noah's ark. I highly recommend this book.
great book! we love it! Jan 12, 2007
I have to admit, we rarely buy books... we usually get them from the library. This book is definitely one that you want on your shelves permanently!! It brings the story to life, and is a great way for inquisitive little minds to get into the story. You feel as if you can step onto the pages and into the boat! It captivates the mind and curiosity of our three year old, and she just loves it! The pop-ups are truly amazing, and the fold outs add more to each page. It's well written, and great for the kids. Wish they had these when we were little! I am giving this to our 2 and 3 year old cousins as well- this makes a great gift. A definite hit!
The Perfect Present Nov 1, 2006
This book is a perfect gift for a young child. It should be shared with an adult since the pop up is so elaborate and somewhat delicate. It is the perfect book for a parent or grandparent to read with a child. I very highly recommend this book.
a great pop-up Jul 31, 2005
Every Reinhart pop-up book is wonderful. That last one is also splendid.
He's done it even better this time! Mar 16, 2005
I have been anxiously awaiting this book for more than a year, and the wait was work it! The artwork and engineering is bright and imaginative.
The ark unfolds before your eyes, the gangplank lowers and the water rises!!! At the end the the ark has landed on dry land and a transparent rainbow embodies God's promise. His best work yet!
