We all have heard of Noah and his ark, but what about Naamah, his wife? Bartoletti lyrically imagines Naamah’s role on the ark, soothing every person and animal into sleep and comfort. The repetition of “at night” on each page, and the chorus of “Naamah sings all through the night” lulls as one imagines an unexplored biblical figure. The collaged illustrations are both intense with the flooding world, and sleepy sweet. A beautiful and intriguing new lullaby to share.
