This lovely little picture book has an excellent environmental twist on a familiar tale. While Noah organizes the animals on to the ark, Mrs Noah suddenly realizes she must load the ark with plants or there will be nothing to eat while on the ark and nothing to plant to help the world grow once the rains have subsided.


Mrs Noah's Vegetable Ark by Elena Pasquali

While Mr Noah is busy building his ark, Mrs Noah has a sudden thought: what about her vegetable garden? And the fruit trees? And everything she has spent years sowing, growing and tending? They'll get washed away when the rain comes! So whilst the animal ark venture goes ahead, Mrs Noah begins collecting seeds, taking cuttings and eventually loading the ark with her own produce. The result is a splendid garden ark which not only gives everyone onboard plenty to eat, but once the rain has subsided gives Mrs Noah a head start in helping the world grow green and new. A twist on the well-known story with a topical environmental theme.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
