One Wide River to Cross based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This book presents an appealing retelling of the Noah's ark story using the words of a folk song and bold woodcut illustrations by Ed Emberley. Unlike the traditional story, the animals do not board in pairs, but rather more are adding with each page, making the story a counting book. The geometric illustrations are printed in black ink on vividly colored paper, the woodcut printing technique lending itself well to pattern and repetition. The words and pictures work together well to create a humorous and imaginative book. Recommended for preschool and kindergarten children.
