Note: 
A wordless version of the Noah story, except for the words of the Dutch poem on which it is based printed at the very beginning. Spier's illustrations chronicle the entire saga, from the animals assembled and hoping to board, through the rain pouring down in amazingly evocative watery sheets, to the burdens of Noah and his family doing their daily tasks, to disembarcation and the planting of a new earth under the rainbow. The earthiness, humor, and minute detail of the pictures tell many stories; this is a book that needs to be perused again and again. Winner of a Caldecott Medal, Spier's rendering of the oft-told story is a classic!
