Noah's Ark

Caldecott Medalist Hogrogian has created a series of delicate, muted pictures that beautifully illustrate this biblical story. She follows the book of Genesis quite closely, from the creation to God's sorrow that ""wickedness had filled the hearts of men,'' to the building of the ark and the first drops of rain. And she chronicles, as does the Bible, Noah's ancestry: ``Noah was the son of Lamech, who was the son of Methuselah,'' right down six more generations to Seth, ``who was the third son of Adam and Eve.'' Hogrogrian has added a dimension of realism to the story by showing Noah's blueprints, his vast stores of seed and the huge timbers that comprised a frame for the ark. (4-8)
