Publisher's Description

When children open the doors of this ark-shaped playset, they'll discover an adorable book, two sheets of press-out characters, and a stand-up panorama backdrop for hours of storytelling and entertainment. Noah's Animal Friends tells the story of Noah and the flood with simple text and cheerful illustrations, while the stand-up characters-drawn in the same charming style-allow children to act out the story for themselves.

    Lucy Barnards illustrations are charming, whimsical, and unabashedly friendly. Noah and his family all seem very personable, the animals are all smiling. Ghe illustrations are incredibly appealing for young children. Ellis text is warm, and as most simplified versions do omits more complex details such as seven of certain animals being brought on board. The large, heavy cardboard playset immediately captured the hearts of my children, and after punching out some light cardboard animals, they set to work inserting the tabs on the bottom of the animals into slots in the ark. The ark has two doors that open wide, displaying a storage slot for the book, and an art scene most of the animals have one or two representatives already on board, but there are some singles and Noah himself left loose that need some help getting loaded.This sounds better than it works. In actuality the slots in the layers of cardboard are tight, and my kids jammed their little animals against them, rendering some of the tabs unusable.With no integral storage for the critters I set my children up with a re-sealable sandwich bag, still the animals rarely made it back to their plastic bag home. Older children may do a better job containing their mini-zoo, but then they would be outside of the target age range.Despite the fact that the animals are mostly gone now, my children still adore the cardboard base where the animals didnt hold up to handling, the base is still going strong its indestructible, and they wont let me get rid of it. That just goes to show how appealing the opening doors and charming artwork are. The board book is still with us as well, being sturdily constructed.Overall Noahs Animal Friends: A Book And Playset is a cute idea, and the type of product Christian grandparents will likely find hard to resist if they stumble across it in a store, but in actually it didnt work out in the day-to-day testing grounds of our family.
