About The Book



Beds are ready. 

Food is stored.

Noah hollers,

“All aboard!”
It’s bedtime on Noah’s ark, but the animals can’t sleep because of the storm. Two by two, they crowd into Noah’s bed, creating a sticky situation. Will Noah ever get them back to their own beds? Climb aboard the ark for this rollicking, yet ultimately restful bedtime story as Noah finds a way to make things calm and cozy, even in the midst of a storm.

The Friday #56 (middle of the board book, not page 56!)


"Ark is tipping!
Tip, slip, slide!
Noah wakes up
as they glide.
Faster! Faster!
Rumble! Shake!
"Watch out or
this bed will..."

My Review


My grandson enjoys holding the large size sturdy board book and pointing to the many colorful animals, calling them by name. It's a cute and funny story of rhymes (maybe not so Biblical but it's juvenile fiction) regarding the animals crowding onto Noah's bed, two by two. The elephants are grand, the boars grunt and groan, the quail squeak and squawk, the lightning spooks the sheep and the tigers are nervous as the ark tips in the storm. When the stinky skunks show up, everyone runs and Noah begins a sleepy night time tune.

 I like the book and the refreshing approach by the author to an all time favorite story but I missed seeing Noah's wife inside the ark. Plus, I don't like snakes very much. Although they are long and yellow and it appears everyone is getting along in the ark, I thought it was an over kill of snakes on every page... I'm just saying. I think the illustrator likes snakes! lol

4/5 stars

I received this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
