We’re All in the Same Boat

We’re All in the Same Boat, written by Zachary Shapiro and illustrated by Jack E. Davis,  is a story of Noah’s Ark. Many children may know this story from Sunday School or church attendance, but those without a Judeo-Christian background will also find something to enjoy in this book. The book makes no mention of the Bible or religion, and, in my opinion, this makes the book accessible to more readers (and it gives me license to read it aloud in my public elementary school library).

The illustrations in this book, while engaging, were a little “busy.” It was sometimes difficult to determine which animals in the picture the text referred to.

At it’s heart, this book is an ABC book about how people behave when they get frustrated and how they work together when they realize they’re not so different after all.
