The animals are taken care of--but what about all the plants? An environmental take on the beloved Noah's Ark tale.   While Mr. Noah is busy building his ark, Mrs. Noah has a sudden thought--what about her vegetable garden? And the fruit trees? And everything she has spent years sowing, growing, and tending? They'll get washed away when the rain comes! So while the animal ark venture goes ahead, Mrs. Noah begins collecting seeds, taking cuttings, and eventually loading the ark with her own produce. The result is a splendid garden ark which not only gives everyone onboard plenty to eat, but once the rain has subsided, gives Mrs. Noah a head start in helping the world grow green and new.

In this book, Mrs. Noah grows a vegetable garden. As Noah prepares for the flood and gathers the animals, she realized she should probably do something to preserve her plants to be replanted after the flood. So she takes them on the ark. The plants also provide food while they are on the ark. Smart Mrs. Noah is able to replant all the food plants after the flood waters recede.

This is a "what if..." scenario and not based on any particular Bible reference. It is an interesting point of view since the plants are definitely as important as the animals. The illustrations are wonderful and colorful. The wording is a bit complicated so some explanations may be necessary while reading.
