All Aboard the Ark Board Book {ZonderKidz}: A Delightful Interpretation of Noah's Ark for Little Ones

It's a new year and that means a brand new collection of fun reads for my little one! Our first book of the year is All Aboard the Ark, a sweet children's board book from Zonderkidz.

All Aboard the Ark pairs simple rhyming text with charming watercolor illustrations in this delightful board book. Perfect for bedtime or any time, this sweet story is told from the point of view of the animals who board the ark.

My son is such a fan of animals, so the story of Noah's Ark is a regular in our home. That's why I knew we had to give All Aboard the Ark a read. As a board book, it's durable enough to stand up to little hands. The illustrations done by Cindy Davis are full of beautiful pastel colors and adorable animals as they go about their journey in the Ark. The writing is easy and fun to read, with rhyming prose throughout. The story is actually told through the animals' prospective:

Two by two,
We leave the ark.

Sing a song!
Roar or bark!

All Aboard the Ark is a delightful rendition of the Noah's Ark story. My son smiled ear to ear as I read it to him. He also enjoyed flipping back and forth though the pages by himself, naming off each of the different pairs of animals. This book is perfect for children, ages one through four, and makes a wonderful introduction to the story in the Bible.
