Book review and giveaway: Noah (A Wordless Picture Book)

*Disclosure (in accordance with the FTC’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”): Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing this prize for the giveaway. Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.

I recently received a new book at my home- one with no words! And when a book has no words, the illustrations need to be pretty spectacular to win me over. Noah (A Wordless Picture Book) did just that. Here's a bit about this book, from a press release that I received:

A hundred years before the Great Flood, a man named Noah came home talking crazy. God wanted him to build the biggest ship the world had ever seen. The future of humanity depended on it. How would his wife respond? What would the neighbors think? Was it even feasible?

This lavish reimagining of one of the greatest stories of all time will fascinate children and adults alike. Nuanced and playful, yet meticulous in following the biblical narrative, Mark Ludy’s world-class art digs deeper than the Sunday-school tale of cuddly animals, exploring Noah’s relationship with his family, the natural world, God - and a formidable engineering challenge.
This book is one of the most gorgeously illustrated books that my family owns. Every page has amazing art that truly brings the story to life. You can almost feel the characters pop out of the pages.  The illustrations are intricate and colorful and full of emotions. A truly fantastic way to tell the story of Noah and the flood.

I have good news! One of you will win a copy of this beautiful book for your own home library.  Open to US and Canadian mailing addresses, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.
