Noah's Wife: The Story of Naamahby Sandy Eisenberg Sasso
Synopses & Reviews
When God tells Noah to bring the animals of the world onto the ark, God also calls on Naamah, Noah's wife, to save each plant on Earth.
Entrusted with this task, Naamah sets off to every corner of the world, discovering a fabulous array of growing things, and gathering seeds, bulbs, cuttings, spores, and roots. She fills a room on the ark with every type of plant — from amaryllis, soybeans, and wheat to lilies, moss, and even dandelions. Then, after forty long days and nights on the ark, the most important part of Naamah's work begins.
In this new story, based on an ancient text, Naamah's wisdom and love for the natural harmony of the earth inspires us to use our own courage, creativity, and faith to carry out Naamah's work today.
