Mrs. Noah's Doves
Mrs. Noah kept birds. She kept many a variety of birds, ravens and robins, eagles and eiders, cockatoos and crows. But out of all the birds she kept, her favorite were her doves. When the flood comes, Mrs. Noah brings them onto the ark. But there is a special mission for the doves.

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