I’ve always loved wordless communication. I enjoy mimes and interpretive movement,and, of course, silent movies. Years ago when I taught children’s church, my favorite resource was the wordless book that told the gospel using colors.
So I was excited to receive a wordless picture book about Noah. Mark Ludy has done a great job of taking the familiar story of Noah and giving it a completely different twist. Rather than limiting his story to the basics, he creates a beautiful world for the story and populates it with colorful characters. The artwork is exquisite – intricate images full of color and detail. Parents are going to have to be creative when they read it aloud to their children. They’re going to have to really analyze the pictures to be able to tell what’s going on in each picture. The children will enjoy observing all the many details.
Perhaps my favorite part of the book is that like our silent movie, this book allows each person to interpret the story in their own personal way. It will be different each time they read it.
