Book Review- "Noah's Voyage"
Noah’s Voyage tells the story of a brave and faithful hero of the Old Testament. Written in the I Can Read level two standards, with age-appropriate vocabulary and concepts, young readers read about Noah, a simple man with great faith and trust in God. When God asks Noah to follow his directions, build an ark, and put two of every animal on it, Noah and his family do what they are asked, knowing God would not steer them wrong.
This I Can Read! series of Bible stories makes use of the unique features found in the NIV Adventure Bible such as “People in Bible Times” and “Did You Know ”.
This is a great retell of Noah building his ark with great pictures from David Miles. I know most kids love hearing about all the animals going in a huge boat but I like to discuss with my kids the importance of following God's directions and being obedient to his calling. There are going to be times when the world thinks you are crazy when you do certain things that God asks you to do. For example when our family moved from Wisconsin to Iowa it really did not make a lot of sense but we knew it was where God was positioning us and calling us. Or the time I quit my full time job after having my daughter when my husband did not have a good paying job... but truly God directed us to be obedient in this calling.
I want my kids to truly see how hard it must have been for Noah as the rest of the world laughed and mocked him but then how great his reward for following God's directions! It truly is a great lesson to learn, so make sure you get beyond the animals in this book.
