A Wordless Picture Book
Illustrated by Mark Ludy
As you can see from the title, this book doesn't have words. But the illustrator is extremely talented and does a fantastic job of telling the story without words. Bright colors, exaggerated facial expressions and tons of detail make this a book to add to the library. The kids have poured over this book looking for things they missed the first few times through. My daughter, who can not read, loved this book because she could "read" it to me.
 I think that a knowledge of the story before picking up the book would be helpful, but the illustrator does such a great that kids will want to read the story after seeing the book if they haven't read it before. One of my favorite things was the obvious love between Noah and his wife. It was a detail that the author didn't have to add to make the story authentic, but was a wonderful addition.
If you look carefully, you can find a tiny mouse named Squeakers on every page. I loved all of the different details and will be checking out the author/illustrators other books.
I received this book free of charge from Handlebar Marketing in exchange for my honest review.
