The story of Noah and his ark full of two of every animal on Earth has been a favorite Bible story of children for years. And now, for the first time, Noah’s Ark is brought to life through LEGOS®!
Kids will love seeing the world’s flood and God’s subsequent covenant with Noah to never destroy mankind again played out using their favorite toys. Brendan Powell Smith, creator of BrickTestament.com and author of The Brick Bible, creates a magical “brick” world around the simplified text of the story of Noah, the flood, a wooden ark full of animals, and the promise of a rainbow. A story with a powerful message of forgiveness and love, this is the perfect gift for children.
Smith (The Brick Bible: A New Spin on the Old Testament) applies his succinct storytelling skills and photographs of Lego-constructed visual dramatizations to a classic biblical tale. Illustrations appear on full-bleed full-spread pages with white typeset against a cloudy-blue backdrop, or above a solid yellow border containing blue typeset. The opening spread depicts God as a Lego man in white robe with long white beard, floating above scenes of opposing armies facing off with spears, or individuals fighting, stealing, tormenting animals, quarreling, and neglecting children: "God looked at the world and saw that all the people were very bad." The story closely follows the biblical text, depicting both charming details, such as Noah collecting things that "creep along the ground" (spiders and snakes), and animal pairs entering the ark; he also includes more troubling scenes of those left behind drowning in the flood. A foreword for parents offers suggestions for discussing hard theological questions with children, while an activity page challenges children to search for subtly placed Lego pieces throughout the text. The story's interpretation may inspire literal hands-on engagement with a challenging biblical text. Ages 5 up.
