We're All in the Same Boat
by Zachary R. Shapiro, illus. by Jack E. Davis
Things aren’t going very well on Noah’s ark. The animals thought they were in for a great adventure, but as days turn into weeks and the rain just doesn’t stop, Noah finds himself with a boatload of cranky travelers—from antsy ants and bored bees to yelling yaks and zoned-out zebras. They’re going to have to learn to cooperate in order to save this voyage, and Noah has just the right words to bring everyone together.
Brought to life by Jack E. Davis’s uproarious illustrations, this witty and heartwarming alphabetical play on the Noah’s ark tale makes for the perfect rainy-day read-aloud.
Recommended especially for ages 4 and up.
