For forty days and forty nights, as the ark tosses on storm-wracked seas, Noah's wife, Naamah, sings. She sings to the animals, two by two, and to her own sleeping family, bringing peace in the midst of the storm. In this retelling of the biblical tale for readers 4 to 7, Susan Campbell Bartoletti's rhythmic text pairs with Caldecott Honor winner Holly Meade's luminous collages for a cozy, tender lullaby, and an ode to the power of song.
"Lovely and lyrical…. Bartoletti and Meade take a most familiar story and make it breathtakingly new."—Booklist (starred review)
