About the book:

 Noah, Noah, what do you see? I see animals in the ark with me.

Moses sees the Red Sea part. Daniel sees lions in the den. Mary sees baby Jesus smiling at her.

Noah, Noah, What Do You See? introduces little ones to favorite Bible heroes from the Old and New Testaments. With colorful art from Melissa Iwai and the signature rhyming style of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, parents and children alike will love the classic storytelling of Bill Martin Jr. and Michael Sampson.

Bill Martin Jr. didn’t learn to read until he reached college, yet he earned a doctorate in education from Northwestern University. He was one of the world’s foremost authors in literary education, as well as a million-selling author of books including Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? 

Michael Sampson, Ph.D., is a New York Times bestselling author of twenty-six books for young children, including Chicka Chicka 1, 2, 3 and The Bill Martin Jr. Big Book of Poetry. Sampson is dean of the School of Education at St. John’s University in New York City and lives with his family on Long Island.

My thoughts:
As a teacher I have enjoyed Brown Bear, Brown Bear....book for many years.  So when I saw this book the title caught my eye.  I'd thought it would be the animals on the ark but was pleasantly surprised to find that each page is a different Bible hero...Adam, Noah, Jonah, Mary, Paul, and Zacchaeus to list a few!

I have already read it multiple times with my little boy (age 21 months) and he really likes it.  I asked him what is this book and he told me "Onah Onah."

We like the pictures and the rhythmic text.  I like that my little guy is being exposed to these Bible heroes with something related to what they did in the Bible.   I'm sure it is to be a favorite at your house too.
