It's mealtime on the ark!

Striking folk-art-style paintings illustrate this charming tale about the purpose of every creature and the harmony of nature.

Noah and his family work hard to keep all the animals on the ark happy and well-fed. They find just the right food for every creature-except for the two chameleons. These picky eaters won't eat anything ! Noah is worried! What will tempt these two? It is not until the ark's food supply is suddenly threatened, that Noah gets a surprising answer-and discovers that even the smallest creatures have a big role to play in nature!

'Charming extension of a well-known Bible story . . . In a refreshing departure, Molchadsky chooses to highlight Noah's wife, Na'ama, in a central role, departing from so many retellings that relegate everyone but Noah to the background. The visually and warmly surprising multiethnic family, representing many shades and skin colors, attempts to keep the matching animals happy and well-fed . . . leaving readers to remember that 'everything and everyone has a place under the sun.' Bergman's folk-art-style paintings are colorful and textured, investing all the ark's passengers with great personality . . . This delightful narrative balances respect for tradition with inviting, accessible storytelling; a very well-executed debut for children and an appealing addition to family reading time.'
