Jewish Book Council

An excep­tion­al work which invites young read­ers to iden­ti­fy with the unique mis­sion of both Noah and his wife.

Sydney Taylor Shmooze

Readers will fall in love with Mrs. Noah and her doves in this heartwarming retelling of the age-old story of destruction, rebirth, and hope.

Publishers Weekly

“With flowing lines, soft rich tones, and patterning reminiscent of decorative art (the doves’ wings seem almost bejeweled), Massari (Goddess Power) conveys a time and place that feels both of its time and deeply familiar, and the creators render Mrs. Noah as the epitome of selfless love and enduring hope.” — Publishers Weekly

Kirkus Reviews

“A lovely backstory for an obscure biblical personality.” — Kirkus Reviews
