The kids love this book and it comes with a CD that reads to you. The CD reads a little fast, but you can always read it to your children. The artwork is amazing! We bought this to supplement The Mystery of History.
AMAZING & ACCURATE FLOOD ACCOUNT For children and adults
February 1, 2015
Fantastic artwork with accurate retelling of the flood from earth's history. Biblical points specifically delineated to help the reader understand what was involved with building and living in the ark, why the ark was built and so on. The fold outs are beautiful. You have to be a bit careful when refolding the fold out pages but it is well worth it. Glad it is a Hardbound book too. This book is a homerun!
This is an excellent book! While the language might be a little beyond what most 4 year olds are able to understand, my son still loves the telling of the story and the gorgeous illustrations. Further understanding will come! It is important for children to hear this story laid out in a way that it truly may've happened, rather than the cartoonish, fanciful portrayals that make it so difficult for many people to believe. I love that at the end of the book they actually give easily-understood (for adults) mathematical descriptions of the dimensions of the ark. An important read for children and parents alike!
I purchased this book to accompany homeschool study of ancient history, from a Biblical viewpoint. The book is more suited to older children, for whilst the illustrations in the book will keep the younger ones interested, the language and content is rather advanced. The basic facts found in the Bible are largely elaborated on by the author's speculation, and I found I did have to explain this several times to my younger child. The older children understood- this was someone's viewpoint! Some useful and interesting things were the chart showing how long the 8 people were in the ark, plus the Hebrew meaning of ark and a more correct interpretation of ark visually and it's possible construction. These things enabled my children to understand more deeply the enormity of the ark. I would recommend that a child obtain a solid understanding of the story, directly from the Bible, before introducing this book. Please note the eBook version of this product is slower than most digital products, I imagine due to the many beautiful pictures.
