Bible Picture

Noah:

Noah’s Ark – Peter Spier
I absolutely love Spier’s illustrations and writing in The Book of Jonah, so was keen to add his Noah’s Ark to our collection. The scenes are incredibly detailed on double spread pages.  I admit to being disappointed when I discovered it has no text as I’m not a fan of wordless books. However as I study the book more I’m seeing the beauty. Recommend.

 

 

Noah’s Ark – Jane Ray
The text in this copy is directly from the Bible unchanged, simple to follow and understand accompanied by gorgeously illustrated pictures edged in gold. Love the simplicity of this book. Highly recommend.

 

 

Noah’s Ark – Jerry Pinkney
The text has a Biblical cadence and much of the language is Biblical text. Soft and warm watercolour illustrations. My personal favourite of the three. Highly recommend.
