On Noah's Ark
Jan Brett imagines Noah\'s granddaughter finding the way as she boards the ark with the animals and helps them settle down. That\'s not so easy because they thump and bump and push and press against one another. But this resourceful little girl keeps the peace, and as the ark rocks gently in new seas, the animals fall sound asleep.
The story of Noah\'s ark braving the great flood for forty days and forty nights until the waters recede and life starts anew on land is beautifully told in an original text and magnificent paintings, which reflect Jan Brett\'s love of animals, great and small.
