Naamah and the Ark at Night

Naamah and the Ark at Night

A Picture Book by

As Noah's wife sings the animals to sleep, an age-old tale is told afresh in a soothing poetic form brought to life with beautiful collage illustrations.

Naamah is the wife of Noah, and her name means "great singer." For forty days and forty nights, as the ark tosses on storm-wracked seas, Naamah sings. She sings to the animals, two by two. She sings to her husband, her sons, and their wives. She sings, and they all sleep, finally at peace. Acclaimed author Susan Campbell Bartoletti's rhythmic, lyrical text pairs with Caldecott Honor winner Holly Meade's luminous collage for a cozy, tender lullaby, and an ode to the power of song.
