Note: 
Devoid of all religious content, this retelling of the biblical story of Noah is based on the lyrics of a traditional song with the refrain, "One more river, and that's the river of Jordan, one more river, there's one more river to cross." The author-illustrator has adapted the song into a counting book. The counting begins after the ark has been built and the animals start to climb aboard, not in pairs but singly. The illustrations, made from cut paper shapes and painted with a textured effect, are all double page spreads so the animals are easy to identify and count. Preschoolers can see each numeral, count the animals, name the bright colors and join in on the refrain.
