-- Imaginative story of Noah and animals After the flood
-- We challenge you to find another story like this one
This book is different than any other book on the market. You can find countless numbers of children's books about Noah's ark, but none of them tell the end of the story.
After the flood, the Bible tells us that Noah's ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat and Noah planted a vineyard. What happened to the ark? What about all the animals? Well, we really don't know for sure, but author Darrell Wiskur has a few wonderful ideas about it. God, in His infinite wisdom not only gave Noah the plans for building a floating zoo, but also gave him the means to start all over again by using the materials from the ark. This exciting children's book goes beyond the famous flood to surmise about these and other questions.
The author/illustrator of Timothy Whale's Rainbow tells this story with his inimitable style and masterful illustrations.
Kristi5 Stars Out Of 5October 22, 2009KristiThis is a beautifully illustrated, accurate depiction of Noah and the ark. The Really Big Barn on Noah's Farm is extremely unique because it is a story about what might have happened after the flood. The Bible tells us that Noah planted a vineyard- I wonder what his farm was like? The ark sure would make a great barn...I love this book because it approaches the flood as an actual event and lets kids' imaginations soar about what living after the flood might have been like. Wiskur addresses that Noah would have planted the farm and vineyard from seeds stored on the ark; he also discusses that domestic animals would stay on the farm whereas wild animals would have left. He also suggests that as the families grew and needed more homes, that the lumber from the ark would have been a logical source of building materials. The back of the book also has several pages with descriptions of various farm animals, and a page devoted to a brief discussion of the construction of the ark and why it truly would have been useful as a barn and also to be reused for building supplies. Love it, love it.I definitely recommend Darrell Wiskur's books. Full of Truth, beautifully illustrated, well written - they are refreshing to read.
