All Aboard the Ark is fun to read because it rhymes. (I love rhyming books!) This is a cute story from the animals of Noah’s Ark. It is simple and fun. We love books and adding new books to our shelf. I do not think we could ever have too many books. We have other Noah’s Ark books, but I think these biblical stories are so important to read and it’s great to see all the different ways authors tell the stories.
I like books that can be read before a transition in the day, for example, bath and bedtime. I don’t know if the real animals in the ark were able to take a bath, but in All Aboard the Ark they get to! Sometimes It’s nice to read about anything taking a bath before my son takes a bath and then he traditions with out fuss. The animals in All Aboard the Ark go to bed too so it is prefect for the bedtime transition too!
The illustrations are watercolor pastels which is different from other books we read that are usually very bold and bright. That did not seem to effect my son, he enjoyed the book just the same.
My three year old likes simple board books like this one, he listens to the chapter books we read to my seven year old and everything else in between. All Aboard the Ark is one of those board books with lots of details in the pictures so my son will pick it up and read it by himself. He looks at the pictures and retells the story to himself. (I just love that!)
When it comes to gifts I think books are a little underrated. They really are a gift that keeps giving and can help shape the future of a child. When you are giving a present this Christmas to a child, add a book to the gift like this one, All Aboard the Ark!
