Sun is high. Rain is coming.
God whistles. We come running.
All Aboard the Ark pairs simple rhyming text with charming watercolor illustrations in this delightful board book. Perfect for bedtime or any time, this sweet story is told from the point of view of the animals who board the ark.

“All Aboard the Ark” is a beautiful retelling of the the story of “Noah’s Ark” from the point of view of the animals aboard the ark.
It is a board book with adorable water colour illustrations. Young children will enjoy the whimsy of each page. The font is large and easily read by young readers. I really enjoy the progression of the book. It builds in excitement until we get close to the end, where it starts to slow down. The last page is helps prepare your little one for sleep.
The book doesn’t go into any great depth of the story of the flood. It doesn’t tell why God flooded the earth nor does it even mention Noah’s name. While these are very important details, toddlers don’t always grasp the importance of these details. The most important message in “All Aboard the Ark” is stated very simply and very clearly.
“We’re grateful for all living things.
And that we’re sheltered by God’s wings.”
The book reminds us that God will be there for us, during the good times and bad. Just like the animals were safe inside the ark during the storm, God is there with us keeping us safe during our bad times. When we are having fun with our friends, God is still there with us, watching over us. My children can easily imagine being protected under God’s wings, just like the baby birds are sheltered by their mother’s wings.

All Aboard The Ark is a cute board book about the flood story told from a unique point of view. It is written (in rhyme) from the perspective of the animals - from the time before the rain starts until after the ark has safely landed. (Although the book doesn't reference Noah, it does reference God multiple times.)
The rhyming text is cute and the illustrations are adorably done in a pastel color palette.
All in all, All Aboard The Ark is a cute little board book to share with little ones.

“All Aboard the Ark” was designed by Cindy Davis. It is a children’s board book about “Noah’s Ark”, written from the animal’s point of view. It has rhyme and rhythm and pretty pictures for a perfect bedtime storybook. And, it is also great for an early reader.
I would recommend this book.

I like books that can be read before a transition in the day, for example, bath and bedtime. I don't know if the real animals in the ark were able to take a bath, but in All Aboard the Ark they get to! Sometimes It's nice to read about anything taking a bath before my son takes a bath and then he traditions with out fuss. The animals in All Aboard the Ark go to bed too so it is prefect for the bedtime transition too!
The illustrations are watercolor pastels which is different from other books we read that are usually very bold and bright. That did not seem to effect my son, he enjoyed the book just the same.
My three year old likes simple board books like this one, he listens to the chapter books we read to my seven year old and everything else in between. All Aboard the Ark is one of those board books with lots of details in the pictures so my son will pick it up and read it by himself. He looks at the pictures and retells the story to himself. (I just love that!)
When it comes to gifts I think books are a little underrated. They really are a gift that keeps giving and can help shape the future of a child. When you are giving a present this Christmas to a child, add a book to the gift like this one, All Aboard the Ark! (Posted on 12/17/2015)

They rhyming is cute and even if there is some added things that probably didn't happen such as a bath in a wooden tub... but those things sure will get the kiddos giggling. (Posted on 12/9/2015)
