Simple and cheerful - papers over the cracks
on 4 June 2013
I chose this book because I was about to take my young grandchildren to see Benjamin Britten's 'Noye's Fludde', and since they live in a non-religious household, I thought they might not know the story of Noah at all. This version was the least religious of the many on offer, and though it begs some questions (what happened to the 'bad people' mentioned at the beginning, who don't get on the ark?) this is probably inevitable since the Bible story is relatively sadistic, in ways that young children don't need to know about. A bright, appealing book that does the job I needed done.
