Editorial Reviews:

A flood is coming! When the water climbs to the rooftops, where will everybody go? To Grandma's house, of course, high up on a hill. Before long, the house is full ofpeople, chickens, ducks, pigs, horses, cats, and even a cow. There's only one person missing -- Grandpa!

This heartwarming story by Natalie Kinsey-Warnock is based on a real-life event: the Vermont Flood of 1927. Watercolors by Caldecott Medal-winning artist Emily Arnold McCully capture both the sweeping drama of the flood and the comfort of a cozy kitchen filled with friends, neighbors, and good cheer.

Summary: Lovely book about friendship and compassion
Comment: While my 6 year old found this book "sad," we both enjoyed the true story of a flood in Vermont and how the community banded together to help each other. A good, gripping read aloud!

Summary: Everything else is just gravy...
Comment: I picked up Nora's Ark at our local library to read to my 6 and 8 year old children. I assumed it would be a sweet little story, about a family dealing with a flood; and it is. But it is so much more than that. It is about neighbors, and the bonds we share with them. It is about bravery, strength of character, and love. It is based on a real-life event, The Vermont Flood of 1927. It snuck right up on me, and at the end of the story, my 6 year old looked up and said, "Mommy, you're crying." The watercolor illustrations by Emily Arnold McCully are very nice too.
