Noah by Mark Ludy, A Wordless Picture Book


noahMark Ludy does the story of Noah using detailed illustrations. There are no words in the book so you have to tell the story yourself. The first couple of pages were great, then God spoke to Noah and the illustrations got a little dark and intense.

But then he brought it back to happy illustrations with a picture of a blueprint for the ark and Noah harnessing the dinosaurs to haul the lumber for the ark. You see the joy as his son is born and the family working on the ark and the animals waiting to get on.

But then again when the flood hits the illustration gets intense and you can see the fear as the people drown. After that life on the ark is shown and of course the landing all in detailed illustrations.

I like the brilliant colors in the illustrations, the size of the book is nice 8×11. The paper is a little thin for small children, it might rip easy and some of the illustrations are dark and intense. I would give this book a 3 out 5 stars.
