Olive is a gentle friendly dove who wants to help her friends Noah, his family and the other animals with her on the ark. She tries to soothe them during the rain and has an important assignment, to discover when itís safe to venture from the ark after the flood.
“Olive and the Great Flood,” ... is a sweet retelling in verse of the dearly loved Noah’s Ark story. Ms. Arnold’s retelling of the Ark story is told in rhyme, which children enjoy. But what makes the story come to brilliant life is the exquisite artwork by Ms. Bullock. The drawings are realistic and pleasing. They bring delight and action in a story that mainly has the constant rain and the flood to move the scenes. Recommended for ages four through eight, for faith-based schools, Sunday school programs, and for parents and grandparents who would enjoy reading and seeing the Noah’s Ark story beautifully illustrated.~ Reviewed by Penelope Ann Cole, Award Winning Author.
