PreSchool-Grade 2–In this rhymed account of Noah's famous voyage, the patriarch builds a rainbow-striped cruise ship and urges the animal pairs to board to escape the impending flood. Unending rain takes its toll on the critters' dispositions; some grow bored and others throw tantrums. Fortunately, the sun soon reappears, and Noah devises a plan to pass the time while the waters recede: he has the animals perform various tricks in a high-energy talent show. With all the noise and activity, the efforts of two caterpillars that quietly encase themselves in cocoons are overlooked by everyone but Noah. Their transformation into brilliant butterflies offers a fitting finale to the lengthy journey. Mitton's verse propels the story, which should be read aloud for maximum bounce and effectiveness. Parker-Rees's action-packed illustrations and the book's large format also facilitate group sharing. The creatures' facial expressions and body postures reveal their emotions, especially when they grow crabby and disgruntled. Those searching for a bedtime version of Noah's tale will need to look elsewhere–this one is designed for active storytime fun.–Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
