Noah, Noah, What Do You See? By Bill Martin Jr. and Michael Sampson is my favorite board book of the year. It introduces well-known Bible stories and the christ-following believers in each to children of a young age. Similar to the book “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” by the same author, this book will likely be taken to heart just as well.
The books catchy rhythmic phrases and repetitive words flow delightfully. We learn what is seen. For example, the first page reads ” Adam, Adam what do you see?” He replies “I see creation all around me”. Following Adam, many more example of what is seen by Noah, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, David, Daniel, Esther, and many more.
Each person and their story are portrayed on a spread of two pages. On every page, there’s the scripture reference of where the particular story can be found in the Bible. I like that the reference is included for children that may be interested in learning the whole story verse by verse.
The wording in the book is great as well as the illustrations. We see what the characters see. You can clearly determine what the story is about through the colorfully engaging imagery. My children all enjoyed looking at the pictures and were happy many of their favorite Bible stories were included.
I am reading this book almost daily to my nine-month-old. I am excited that she stays engaged while the book is read. There’s no time better than when little ones are young to introduce and get them accustomed to stories of our God.
