Noah’s Ark is a most thought provoking and exquisite re-telling of the classic bible story of Noah and the flood from Genesis, Chapter 6 – 9. Noah’s Ark features full-color reproductions of paintings from The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s own collection. The majority of the art extends beyond one page — it’s beautiful and awe-inspiring to see such large full-color reproductions of the artwork to accompany the narrative! Falken’s adaptation is written using clear and modern language. However, Noah’s Ark may be more appropriate for children toward the latter end of the suggested age range because the story does not skip or gloss over some of the more darker events from the story of Noah and the flood. The book concludes with a five-page credits section that features generously sized thumbnails of all the art, meta data for each piece, and a few sentences further discussing the artist and his work.
