Reviewed by Daniel D Staats for Readers' Favorite

Martha Yamnitz has written a wonderful children’s book telling the biblical story of Noah—Noah and Me. Her best friend from high school, Jeri Hanson, has brilliantly illustrated the book for her with a style that will appeal to children everywhere. This book shares the story of Noah and the universal flood as found in the Bible. Martha has added questions to each page that parents can use to open discussions with their children. These questions enhance the usefulness of this book. Parents will be able to spend hours discussing the various questions that link the child to Noah. I highly recommend parents first read the book in its entirety to their child(ren), then go back and slowly discuss each question over a period of days or weeks.

Most children like to have the same story read over and over to them. Noah and Me by Martha Yamnitz is just such a book. While many parents tire of reading and re-reading the same story, Martha has inserted questions that make re-reading this book a special time of bonding with children. Reading a page each day and asking the questions on each page will give time for interaction between parent and child. These questions are thought-provoking and allow the Bible to become real and relevant to the child. This will also build the child’s self-esteem by allowing them to realize their feelings are akin to the feelings of such a great man as Noah. Jeri Hanson provided excellent drawings for the story.
