A few weeks ago, my children and I were privileged to be walking through the bookstore at the Creation Museum at the end of a wonderful day. It was amusing to hear all six of my children commenting to Grandma, “We have that book!” Over and over and over. I’m a bit of a Young-Earth Creation Fan. You might notice I even have a category devoted to Creation on my blog menu, and a dedicated Creation Science Pinterest board. That’s because I think it’s important. When we got to the display for N is for Noah by Ken and Mally Ham, my kids said “We don’t have that one yet.” To which I was happy to respond, “A review copy is waiting for us when we get home.”
N is for Noah really is a beautiful book. You can see from my pictures that the illustrations are simply beautiful. Each full color picture corresponding to a letter of the alphabet is complemented by a series of conversational style reading material to read and discuss with your kids.
The book is presented easel style, which means I can use it at the table at breakfast, and everyone can see the pictures while I read the book. That’s pretty exciting in a large family when kids are used to squeezing each other out to see pictures! The easel base is very high quality and the spiral binding is strong so it should last as nicely as our first book in the series, D is for Dinosaur.
This precious and informative account of Noah, the ark, the flood and the man is designed to be interactive — it works with your kids to bring out the story and have fun at the same time. Each section of the story corresponds to a letter of the alphabet. We are taking it one page at a time and using it for School mornings for my preschool boys as a fun way to start. There is a lot of information included for each page, so I take it one section at a time and stop when my boys get overwhelmed.
My Bottom Line: I think you are going to enjoy reading this book with your preschool or Kindergarten aged kids — even early elementary aged kids will enjoy it. I love having books to read from a company that support my worldview, and if you believe in a literal seven-day Young-Earth Creation you will appreciate the books in this series.
