Product Description

Review

Lovely and lyrical...Bartoletti and Meade take a most familiar story and make it breathtakingly new.
—Booklist (starred review)

Sunlit figures with a peaceful absence of detail contrast with quietly dramatic, near-black silhouettes. Affection between pairs warms many a scene.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

The text has a lovely, soothing effect, with the repeated ending words and a lilting cadence that effectively suggests a comforting lullaby. Meade's watercolor collage illustrations match the dramatic pacing of the text with varied perspectives and humorous views of the sleeping (or prowling) animals. . . . This captivating interpretation creates a remarkable partner for Noah, who uses her special talent in a memorable way.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Format: Hardcover
The author's not at the end of this book explains the style of writing used to write this lullaby. The style is inspired by an Arabic form of poetry dating back to at least the seventh century, called ghazal (pronounced like guzzle) It makes for a lovely, rhythmic feel as we read about Noah's wife singing the ark to sleep at night. The illustrations feel like cutouts pasted together to make pictures and are soothing rather than bold in colour. Naamah and the Ark at Night is a perfect bedtime book.

HASH(0xa8904954) out of 5 stars Peaceful Nov. 28 2011
By Fay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love reading this book to my three-year-old granddaughter. It is a peaceful, quiet story, just perfect for bedtime. The story of the origin of Naamah's name is interesting. There are few words tucked into a wonderful rhythm.

HASH(0xa8904ba0) out of 5 stars Wonderful book June 3 2012
By stringandtwig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is one of my one year old son's favorite books, and I love reading it to him. It's a short and lyrical read with gorgeous pictures. My son loves to roar at the lions, kiss them good night and point out all the different animals throughout the book and on the front and back covers.
HASH(0xa8904b64) out of 5 stars Peaceful poem. Dec 28 2015
By DA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a nice poem and story of Noah's wife. The pictures are quite lovely and the poetic form intends to soothe and comfort the reader or listener as Naamah does the same for the passengers of the Ark. A note for the author's note, someone unfamiliar with this potential name for Noah's wife who wouldn't know how to pronounce it learns at the end of the book how to do so. For a first time reader including this information at the start of the book will help them relate to the character better as they will know how to speak her name in their thoughts as they read or aloud if they are reading to others.
