Synopsis

The Chameleon That Saved Noah's Ark by Yael Molchadsky

Noah and his family work hard to keep all the animals on the ark happy and healthy, feeding each one the right kind of food. But the chameleons refuse to eat everything they are offered. What on earth do-chameleons eat? It's a puzzle that fortunately solves itself when the chameleons show Noah exactly what they're hungry for - the worms that have invaded the ark's food supply! Saving the day, the little lizards and even smaller worms show Noah the great value of even the smallest among us.

Reviews

* Charming extension of a well-known Bible story. . . . In a refreshing departure, Molchadsky chooses to highlight Noah s wife, Na ama, in a central role, departing from so many retellings that relegate everyone but Noah to the background. The visually and warmly surprising multiethnic family, representing many shades and skin colors, attempts to keep the matching animals happy and well-fed . . . leaving readers to remember that everything and everyone has a place under the sun. Bergman s folk-art-style paintings are colorful and textured, investing all the ark s passengers with great personality. . . . This delightful narrative balances respect for tradition with inviting, accessible storytelling

the sea is active and turbulent, Noah s red-haired son Ham is particularly curious, and many of the animals are observant and intrigued by the goings-on. The message is clear: nature is full of wonders, and everyone has a place in the sun. Booklist
