Jewish Values: Animals and the Ark, The
Number of Pages:
Karla Kuskin wrote the poem that comprises the narrative of this delightful book in 1957. Now it has been illustrated with splashy, rollocking watercolors and packaged in a creatively designed format. With no biblical content, this recapitulates the story of the Flood emphasizing the animals and the practical problems of so many crowded together in one small boat. Reading this aloud to a group will take some practice but it is well worth it.
